Alice In Wonderland Secret Passages Journal

Almost a year ago I went to an immersive Alice In Wonderland Show in the Vaults theatre. The vaults are unused old arches under Waterloo Station, London. I took the wheelchair path which was a little different, to everybody else’s, but there were still lots of passages and turns and surprises. I wanted to represent this in my little journal of the fun time spent there.

I included opening doorways, envelopes, hidden tags along with photos and clippings from the programme.

I folded down the top of this page.

The page unfolded.

Another fold down page with pockets .

Next you need to flip the book over and it folds down three times. I think I missed one page when I was taking the photos. There are also lots of fold outs and pockets etc which are difficult to show in the photos.

Some more fold outs.

There is another page underneath which I forgot to take a photo of. It was fun to create this journal, and brings back happy memories when I look through it again.

On the 7th July it is Alice Day here in the UK, and I am hosting my first  Alice Challenge Celebration to spread the joy of Alice. I hope you will be able to join in the fun, any crafts, cards, journals, scrapbook pages, canvas, mixed media etc are welcome.  More information on how to join in the fun here

December Daily

I have finally finished the front cover for my December Daily. It is only going to be a 6 x 6 one this year. I am going to be using Bo Bunny’s Christmas Carousel papers for my journal and the deer and pink berries are from Anna Marie Designs.Sorry I don’t recall who made the gorgeous snowflake stencil.

This is the inside of the cover, there is a pocket at the bottom, but I don’t have anything tucked into it yet.The Christmas Carousel papers come with lots of elements which I am planning to fussy cut and use as embellishments.

Thank you for visiting, I would like to enter my December Daily cover into the Stamps and Stencils challenge which is pastels.I would also like to enter it into the Allsorts Glitter Challenge  I hope the glitter in the snow shows up!

I would also like to enter Country View Challenges Use Stencils challenge, and That’s Crafty Stencil  It Challenge

Happy Christmas/Winter crafting xx

A surprise and finally finished 2015 book

I had a lovely surprise this evening. My Believe card was selected as one of the top five at The Allsorts Challenge Blog.Thank you so much, there are so many very talented ladies taking part I was lucky to have been chosen!

Today I finally finished my 2015 em err do I call it a scrapbook,or a diary or a journal? It's certainly not an Art Journal, that is something I want to eventually try my hand at, it's too small for a conventional scrapbook.... Em...oh well I will just call it a book recording 2015.

I covered my book in a cloud fabric and I cut out Classic Pooh and Piglet from some other fabric and stitched them on. I added a little bit of stuffing to Pooh to make him stand out. I cut out and then stitched on lots of wild poppies. I don't have a sewing machine and my hand stitching is not too wonderful so please don't look too close!

Thanks so much for looking. Have a nice weekend.
