Alice Challenge continues

I managed to complete another couple of pages for the Alice in Wonderland Challenge being run by the PaperArts Yahoo Group ( 

The Mad Hatter

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum

I had a blast making these pages up.  The Mad Hatter has an old baby wipe as the background that I used to clean up my nieces paints as she kept mixing all the colours up, it looks really cool in the flesh 'cause I covered it in Yellow Glimmer Mists, so it's all sparkly.

The tweedles background is different types of torn paper, covered in a wash of Gold Red Oxide.  I then added some packaging fabric and dried it with the heat gun 'cause I was impatient and melted some of that fabric, which gave it a really cool texture.  I used Memories Mists, glimmer mists & starburst stains for more colour, shimmer & drips . The tree has an encyclopaedia description of Tweedle Dee & Dum ... how perfect.

Until next time, keep well and keep creating ....

`Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Agreed to have a battle; For Tweedledum said Tweedledee, Had spoiled his nice new rattle. Just then flew down a monstrous crow, As black as a tar-barrel; Which frightened both the heroes so, They quite forgot their quarrel.'

Hi Diana. Thanks for visiting my blog:-)
I love your Alice pages. I double clicked on the mad hatter to make it bigger and I could see the glimmer mist. That background is fabulous! And by the way, why is a raven like a writing desk?!
Hope life in Sydney is suiting you well. x
