Wacky Hearts - The Altered Alice Chapter 12

Well, I am squeaking in at the last minute with my February hearts project! I love these wacky Alice characters from The Octopode Factory. I created two pages in my art journal:
This March Hare image is a favorite, and I combined it with the Valentine Hearts Banner. He looks like the morning after a rough road, and I had to put this crazy caption: "She knew it was true love, because she loved him even before coffee."
The images were colored with Copics, and the background paper is Lost & Found from My Mind's Eye. Several layers of grass were cut with a fringe scissors, and a Cheery Lynn leafy flourish adds some interest. Words were stamped with a little wood mounted alphabet by Studio G, a dollar bin find!
I started this spread by sponging the sky area with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Then I tore some green paper, crumpled it up, then smoothed it back out before adhering it with a glue stick. I had a blast coloring the
Whimsical Dream Castle with Copic markers. It seemed fitting that the Queen of Hearts would have heart-shaped flowers, so I added the Heart Stems which helped to balance the layout. Letters were stamped directly on the page and the small heart punch is from Stampin' Up!.

I hope you enjoyed these humorous pages! Please leave a comment before you go, I love hearing from you!
