Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I am enjoying the long weekend and getting a few things done, not as many as I really should do as I keep getting distracted by ‘art projects’ but my massive ‘to do’ list is a little shorter than it was at the beginning of the weekend.
The page above is from my A4 journal. I have always loved everything to do with the Alice books, I just like the weird, other wordlyness of the stories. I really love the background colour on this page. The chequer board is from a stencil I cut myself from a sheet of acetate (I didn’t get it quite right as is shown on this image, but since then I have added some tape to make the perspective look better.) I tried to do an image transfer of Alice, but it didn’t work, you can just see her in the background. When that didn’t work I painted over the image and surrounding area with yellowish glitter paint. Then I printed a new image of Alice, cut her out, coloured her in and stuck her on. The cards are from a sheet of Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper. I can’t remember where the little chipboard hearts came from or why I stuck them on. The quote about not knowing where you are going is from the Cheshire Cat and “Curiouser and curiouser” is what Alice said just after she had eaten the cake:
“’Curiouser and curiouser!’ Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). ’Now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!’ (for when she looked down at her feet they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off).”
I am about half way through checking out all the workshops on 21 Secrets and I have made a start on 2 of them already – Connie Hozvecka’s “Flow” and Dale Anne Potter’s “Personal Acts of Kindness”. There is such a lot of good stuff to try and excellent teachers I know I am going to have 9 months of fun!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
