Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop!




Today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;







Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th, with winners announced on July 20th.

Here's my Alice in Wonderland inspired project:

I made an ATC using The Octopode Factory's Alice in Wonderland. I colored her using my Tombow watercolor markers. That was fun in and of itself, but then I really started to play. 

I used a couple of vials from the Stampendous! Frantage Encrusted Jewel  Kit in Blue to embellish the "A" in her hair. Then, I decided to keep playing so I did my entire background with the kit. I used each of the 5 vials that come with it, and that was loads of fun! There's a video on how the kit works in the link above. It's super easy, and the results are so fantastic! 

I stapled Alice in 3 spots, because I wanted to make sure she was nice and secure. I tried to put them in semi-discreet spots, though usually I really like when staples show. The last step was to use part of a Stampendous! stamp that says, "Keep calm and hurry Santa!" I only inked the Keep Calm parts. You can find it in the Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear set. So that's my project! Be sure to hop along to all of the other folks that are playing along today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
