Looking for Wonderland

Anyone for tea? Look at the fun and quirky Alice in Wonderland teacup I brought home from a recent trip overseas. I have mentioned on a few blog posts how I love all things Alice! As you can see here, I have a nice little collection going. Isn't the bunny ear clock adorable? It was given to me by a good artist friend Dea in the USA.




The backdrop is a journal page in my first Life Book journal. The quote "You don't have to be Mad to live here but if you are it Helps" was on a small plaque in our house growing up. It always made me smile :)




I thought I would mix old with new and make this pretty Alice pendant necklace, inspired by Tim Burton's new movie 'Alice through the Looking Glass'. If you enjoyed Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland', then you will also love this movie.

Alice is from one of my own illustrations, ephemera completes the look. I tried to capture the blue butterfly's sparkle, which I hand embellished before adding the clear cabochon, but I am not sure if this ornate jewellery setting completely suits it or maybe a plainer one would have be better. What do you think?


   

It's been a little while since I last blogged. In that time, I have spent a couple of months in Ireland for the wedding of our eldest son. It was a perfect day, shared with family and friends, everyone agreed...what a gorgeous couple they make! 




We also took a trip over to France. More about that on upcoming posts. I would love to hear what creative projects have been keeping you busy or what are some of the things or people that have inspired you in your creative journey?

Until next time, Happy Creating!
