A Different Alice

 It is fun to be challenged - it is years since I followed a sketch but the current Paperbabe Challenge is a sketch!!
 I love all thing Alice so after thinking and playing with ideas I came up with this journal page - inspired in kind by a trip a couple of of years ago Alice Underground - which was a truly memorable day!!

The theatre company have twists in the tale and I decided to have the same in my page.

I used a page from an old book - the Dodo Race, mounted on a used brown envelope (recyling)

The lady image and background are digital - the image I  coloured with copics love the quote and I think it is very apt for all of Alice!!The background I altered with acrylic paints / glaze / splatters.
 The entwined circles / bubbles are a sizzix die cut - I used them to also highlight some of the book text.
Had a lot of fun making my page and enjoying the processes

Have a lovely week everyone

This is an amazing entry. I love how you wove your thought process with the visual imagery. I love how you used the "twists," too. Very clever. This is a wonderful Alice page and fits both the Go Green and Recycled at Try it on Tuesday.

So cool. I love how you have the words across her head. So much of everything negative in our lives is in our head. I love the girl and how you did her wearing contrasting green. Super well done and thoughtful.
