' Alice ' The Altered Book

Hi, its ages since I've altered a paperback and when my new Wonderland stamps arrived from Happy Daze my brain just buzzed with ideas and this is one of them............hope you like it.


Alice is late for her visit to the Queen of Hearts, but she doesn't look too bothered does she...........lol


Stamps by: Wonderland by Stampendous and Inkadinkado
Products used Gesso, Acrylic Paints, Texture Paint, Prima Mask, Studio Multi Medium, Whisper Pens, Inka Gold plus Gems and Ribbon from Stash.

This altered book is going to one of my grand-daughters, I have attached a hook at the back so it can be hung on a wall.  As its a Stampendous stamp set I thought I could enter it into the Stampendous challenge this month and also The Altered Alice challenge blog

I would love it if you would pop over to the Happy Daze Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created as there are some wonderful creations.  Plus.......don't forget the terrific prize of vouchers from Moira if your entry is the winner this month.

Take care, be seeing you soon, hugs Annette x
