Alice In Wonderland

Hello Friends!  As you might notice, I'm still working on Alice In Wonderland projects!  I'll tell you a secret:  Until last month, I never read or watched any version of Alice in Wonderland.  No kidding!  Since that's the Alpha Stamps April Kit theme, I decided to jump down the rabbit hole and finally explore for myself.

I survived.  It was bewildering at times and downright weird at others, but I made it through 3 1/2 versions and only switched off two others (including the one with Scott Baio... yikes).

As a result, I have a few projects to share with you today.  I used a lot of Alpha Stamps collage sheets and I'll include a separate list at the end for each project, just to keep it straight.

I've done the fussy-cut on many character pieces, then outlined with brown brush marker to give dimension.

The collage sheet card stock is sturdy, but most of the time I reinforce my bits with left-over board.

I love how Alice is peeking in the background.

I built up a layer of foam adhesive to adhere the white rabbit to the back of the tin.

To make scenic tin backgrounds a little easier I have a clear acetate shape to fit the inside.  I keep it in my tin box for just this type of situation -- I wanted to include Alice and the hill for my background.  You can sort of see it in this photo.

The next project is a wee (and I mean WEE) faux book box with my favorite characters: Cheshire Cat and Caterpillar.
