291  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Little Alice in Wonderland book on: August 11, 2008 06:43:07 AM
Alpha Stamps just came out with a line of Alice in Wonderland stamps and collage sheets, so I thought I'd make a little book using some of them.


The charms on the ribbons were made by stamping with StayzOn ink onto shrinky dinks. Thanks to Crafty_dame for this great idea!

Page one. Alice is stamped on acetate...

...so that she can go visit the White Rabbit!

Page two. Alice goes to a mad tea party. The background pages are from a copy of the actual book, reduced to size. I like having a bit of the story show behind the images.

And, the last page: the Queen of Hearts.

So, there you have it. I loved having another excuse to use my Bind It All.  Cheesy

293  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Clown box on: June 22, 2008 10:36:01 AM
I love a scary clown. I don't know why, but I do have a fondness for them.

I found the perfect little jewelry cabinet for a dollar at the thrift store, and thought it would be fun to make a little shrine, or "clown box". It's about 4" by 7 1/2", so it's a great size.

I removed the drawers, took out the wood partition in the middle, and painted the box with a few layers of paint. I collaged some fun papers on it, and then sanded parts of it down to show some of the paint layers. The clown images are from a collage sheet from Alpha Stamps. The ones in the back wall are set up a little with some sticky foam squares. The clown in the front is glued down just at his foot, and then suspended with gold threads. I know lots of people will think it's creepy, but I'm pretty happy with it.  Cheesy

Here's the clown box in its former life:

Sorry, kitties, you just had to go!

298  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Altered Ancestors Gallery! on: May 01, 2008 06:58:03 AM
For this swap, each of us sent the other participants a couple of old photos of our parents, grandparents, or just people to whom we wished we were related! Everyone chose a photograph to work with and then altered it to suit its subject before returning it to its family. Here's a link to the original swap.

And here's what we came up with:
