What a great idea!  I love the texture of the paints and how the text shows up faintly through the paint. These are neat!!  Did you remove the pages from the book or are they still in the book?

Thank you! I removed the pages from the book. I have been collecting vintage alice in wonderland books lately, and I got one just for altered art purposes. I'm glad I did because I've had sooo many great ideas because of it! =]

I did notice, because I thought, "WOuldn't it be neat if she used pages about that character to paint on?", and so I looked and YOU DID!  Very cute!

What are going to do with these now?

I'm going to get those black mat frames for all of them (I actually only have 2!) and hang them in my new apartment that I'm moving into next week. But I'd like to make prints of them to sell alongside my jewelry - I've never really sold anything except jewelry, DIY wise, so it's new and exciting for me. But first I need to see if the scanner in my house will stop hating me, haha.

Thank you! The queen is another favorite of mine too! The hearts on the side are my own twist but I'm glad it turned out looking okay.

That's funny that you say that, because people always tell me my drawings/paintings look like they should be in a kid's book or room ! :]

very cute!! something inside me wishes you hadn't gone with the Disney versions of the costumes since they are on pages from the original book, but I suppose they are certainly the most recognizable versions.

also I like that you can just barely see some of the text through the acrylics. Cheesy

Oh I know, I was thinking about that as I painted them....theyre a mix of both, though, if you look closely. Well besides Alice's dress and tweedle dum and tweedle dee.............. the queen's dress is a bit hard to see in some of the book's images but that's a mix of disney and my own take (the hearts on the side weren't there) - plus I think it'd be SO elaborate to do the book version's queen's dress! haha.

The mad hatter now has polka dots on the bow, like the original version, but I had added that after I photographed them - Last but not least, the rabbit's tunic IS the from from the book (the one from disney just has one big heart on it)....the one from the book has the big bow and the multiple hearts on it.

But thanks!!! Glad you liked them.

OoO very nice!  I like the idea, I'm always looking for ways to pull story book images and text together.  And right when I'm all excited about the upcoming Alice movie too!

It kind of reminds me of some of the Jay Long stuff I have.

an alice themed nursery would probably be ADORABLE!
i also painted alice's dress and the white rabbit's tunic in watercolors on watercolor paper. i think those would definitely fit into an alice themed nursery.

So beautiful! I love Alice in Wonderland!  I can't wait for the new movie to come out in 2010!!
These remind me of a Alice party somebody threw. She would send us all an invitation inviting us to the Mad Hatter tea party then we would get a name from the book that we had to dress up as. It was always so much fun.
