I attended some Dylusion classes with Dyan Reaveley last weekend. On Sunday we did a full day class focusing on Dyan's wonderful paints. We worked on the small journal and spent the day learning various techniques. The background on this page was made using baby wipes and I've detailed the paints and stencils above. It is the perfect background for my image of Alice.
I printed the image on white card, coloured her with Copic markers and cut her out with a die which has a faux stitched edge. I have added sparkle to her eyeshadow, lips, hairband and initial. I stamped some images based around the theme of tea onto the background using archival ink. I finished the spread by adding a quote from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll:
"Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle."
I've been pointed in the direction of some new challenges by my team mate, Vicky, so I'm submitting this art journal spread to the following challenges:
- Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog - IDCB#55 - where it's ANYTHING GOES
- 613 Avenue Create - 613AC#145 - where it is also ANYTHING GOES
Do visit Sparkle and Glitter to see what the rest of Rick's Elite team have made using their images of Alice.
This is the cover of Rick's colouring book Alice 150th Birthday - just one of Rick's colouring books available at Zibbet or on Amazon. Bye for now!
