Guest Designer at QUIRKY CRAFTS

I entered a challenge over at QUIRKY CRAFTS a few weeks ago with my Zentangle coffin tags... remember them? Well anyways, Cazzy kindly offered me a guest designer spot, and this is my mixed media project for QUIRKY CRAFTS new challenge ALICE IN WONDERLAND. For me this is pretty huge! I havent measured it precisely but i think its about 12"x15". I have used images from OCTOPODE(link on my side bar), stamps,(non sequiteur from de-stampelwinkel....link on my side bar), metal, ribbon, lace, all sorts of 'findings'...posh word for bits i had laying around....


.... paper i made.... washers... lots of ink, paint, the main images are coloured with promarkers...





....background images are coloured with pencils.... G45 paper.... gems...





..... loads and loads of stuff.....




.... i love this cat.... and i'm not a cat person!..... There are 15 rectangles in all.... all have distressed edges.... the background is embossed and sanded.... and this piece is on mountboard....





....i made a silk flower, then made an Alice cameo.... cracked the glaze and mounted it in the centre of the flower....
similar to the brooches i have been making....i should have made it detachable!



I have spent all week.... not constantly of cause, making this, and had an awful lot of fun doing so.... i hope its QUIRKY.... AND FUN.
Thank you Cazzy for allowing me to join in with you guys this week.
