Yesterday I spent a happy afternoon in the land of the Wizard of Oz. Today I decided to visit Wonderland. Unfortunately I didn't see Johhny Depp anywhere but I did meet Rabbit and the real Mad Hatter ! Here's my makes :
First I made this tag :
A few days ago I made some tags and postcard bases with Gesso through a stencil, thinking to use them as a resist. With this one I decided to go with Pan Pastels as I hadn't used them for a long time. Of course the clock faces only came out in relief and not as a resist. I fixed this by colouring the tag first and then putting the stencil back on an using some white ink to make the clock faces more visible. I used 'Fax to Wolfgang' with Distress Ink and 'Barcode' with black Archival Ink in the background. Also I splattered some white Dylusions for a bit more interest. Next I stamped 'Rabbit' on white card stock and coloured him with Copic Markers. I cut him out and adhered him to the tag on some washi tape. The sentiment is from the book and I typed it on my old typewriter (such fun), cut it in strips and doodled around the edges before glueing it to the top of the tag. Lastly I used a Tim Holtz rub-on of a clock and divided it in three bits around the edge of the tag. A bit of ribbon and a black mat finished it off.
Next I made a mini Art Journal:
Started with my brayer and 2 shades of pink and one shade of yellow acrylic paint. I stamped (part of) 'Crow Line' at the top of the page and used a fineliner to extend the line. I used a scroll stamp and some purple ink around the edges. Stamped off twice before stamping on the page so it is nice and subtle. Here too I used 'Fax to Wolfgang' and this time I used grey Stazon ink. 'Mad Hatter' was stamped on white card stock, coloured with Copics and cut out. I adhered him at the bottom of the page. The sentiment is handwritten. That was it !
Thanks for stopping by !
