Alice In Wonderland Book

Hello, and thank you for stopping by. Today I am happy to be escaping to Wonderland. 

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.”

 Lewis Carroll



I used a papier-mâché  book from Hobbycraft, on reflection I wish I had purchased a better quality one as this one had lumps and bumps, and was not very sturdy. I covered it with beautiful Alice rice papers and paint. I also added a white rabbit as he wanted to be followed into the book. 



I had never used moulds before, but when Stamperia released their new Alice range and it included moulds I of course had to get them! I used clay many years ago, but it was clay which had to be baked in the oven, and I made things freehand. So air drying clay and moulds were all new to me.After many attempts I decided to use one of the white rabbits which did not turn out too badly, some of them were dreadful, and looked a bit frightening ! I used acrylics to paint him. 



To cover the inside of the bookI used  pages from a vintage Alice book and stamped over them with playing card suits and other whatnots from my large collection of Alice Stamps.
I fussy cut the beautiful scenes  from the Stamperia papers and folded them and assembled it into the book so they would pop out when opened. I worked it all out on copy paper first :  )
I had fun adding lots of embellishments, hanging some down from the top of the book etc.

Thank you for popping into Wonderland today, and I hope you enjoyed your visit xx

I would like to enter my Alice book into the following challenges.
