Since creating that first Alice piece, I stumbled upon a lovely blog called Altered Alice. This month they are having a tea party challenge, which I incorporated into this piece. For this challenge, I am also bringing some vintage linens to the party.
I started with an old book cover. It was then covered with a bit of floral paper by Tim Holtz, after all it is a garden tea party. I edged the outside with tissue tap. This is the best for covering up any mistakes in aligning your paper by the way. A few spritz of glimmer mists added a bit of sheen to the background.
I used an image I cut from a sheet of Graphics 45 paper, the lovely white rabbit who is running late for the tea party. The mosaic pieces were made from two different types of fragments by Tim and Graphics 45 Halloween in Wonderland die cut tags. The edges were coated with a silver leafing pen. I played with layout a bit to determine a pleasing design and glued them down. I wanted the party to be central, so I was sure to put this image in the middle.
I am really loving this theme. I think I may have a few more Alice inspired pieces in my future.
