Alice in Wonderland

 Hi everyone. 

Today I'm doing double duty with a tag for Tag Tuesday and their Alice in Wonderland challenge.  I  also used the tag to make this page for Alison's pockets and tags challenge at Art Journal Journey.

My background used some more traditional Alice images.  I have this stamp  set of  Alice in Wonderland silhouettes,  and I stamped them on this stenciled page in my stash.  I decided it worked to do some images upside down and some right side up  as  Alice's story is so crazy and fun. I did add some splash and splatters to it (as a nod to the latest Try It On Tuesday challenge).
And for my tag I went with traditional images to represent items in the story. Alice  is a vintage girl, the Cheshire cat is a cat, and of course a pocket watch like the one the White Rabbit carried. I used this big hand/arrow from my newly discovered stash box.
And finally I had these  holographic letters which photographed quite interesting.  I'm not sure where I'd ever use them but they did seem to work with with this story so I added them.

Hope you like it.
And that's all for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.

You covered a three-fer today Erika. Yes, I love this beautiful entry for Alison's theme at Art Journal Journey. I also love the upside down Alice as she's falling through the hole. Really great tag and journal page.

BTW, you were NOT wrong about the sewing and burning the Lutrador. That's why you MUST use an inkjet printer if you want to print on it, too. The laser printer would destroy the printer and the Lutrador. I'm not sure I like the burning effect, but I'll be doing it later in the series.

No, I do not like it. I love it!!! :-)
It reminds me of the last holiday with our Mum.
And it´s so creatively done!

Yes, the images in the background look good upside down as well as right way up. I never thought of that but will in the future. They are just the right size too.
Love the tag, I am a real Alice fan and surprised I did not join in with this challenge but guess other things were on my mind.
Love the lettering, how interesting it scanned like that - brilliant!
Hugs, Neet xx

Lovely journal!
Have a happy day, hugs Elke
