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!

  2. Wow Lynne the coloring on the castle is amazing! It almost looks are a Copic coloring machine! I love the quote with the March Hare...can certainly relate to that!! The tumbled glass background on the left page with the crumpled paper is lovely...yet another Distress ink color to pine for (just when I thought I had them all :)) Another inspiring art journal must have such fun flipping through this book whenever you need a healthy dose of Wonderland!
