Olivia Notebook and an Altered Alice

Olivia, Carol's Flower and sentiment all by Stampotique

You may have seen this little notebook already on the Stampotique Designer's Blog here but I wanted to share it with you here too. I made it this week as I can never have enough notebooks - they are everywhere - in my kitchen , in my handbag, by my bed .... and they are full of lists and important stuff.

I had a lot of fun making this background with Dylusions ink sprays - I'm loving the new Rose Quartz pink :-)



I used distress inks to add extra detail inside the book:


While I was on I made a card for the Altered Alice challenge here, which is all about 'changing form' this month. I used Dylusions ink sprays again to create the background, and then added 'Karin' as Alice. I altered her head and put it one side as she has grown too tall to fit on the card, and I cut the legs off and drew some extra long legs!

Alice drinks some of this:


And her legs suddenly get longer as she grows taller:


And finally ... did you know?? Did you?? The new colours of Dylusions paints are now in stock and on-line. Woohoo! Haven't got any yet but I'm very much looking forward to it :-)

Right, real life calls .... a trip to the supermarket is in order..... byeeeeeeeeee

  4. I really like your altered Alice, she looks creepy, and that is how I've always thought of Alice in Wonderland-a rather weird creepy story.
