From Oz to Wonderland....

Hello fellow Crafters,

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 ! 

Hope you like it....


  1. Mooie resultaten tag heeft een prachtige achtergrond en de tekst op de pagina
    is zo "muchier" ...leuk!

  2. Love both your tag and the mini art journal page, Corrie! I have great fun using my brayer for unique backgrounds, too. But, what I am so very impressed with here is your very own handwriting! I thought it must be a stamp and was trying to see if your had printed it on velum or something else...but, then I read the post! Impressive! Yes! Yes, it is!

  3. Love these Corrie, they are subtle yet have a great impact. I love your handwriting too xx

  4. Love your approach to Wonderland. Lovely technique application. 😉

  5. You would seem to be having lots of fun making the tag and journal pages - fabulous!

  6. Ze zijn allebei zo leuk! En mooi ook! De achtergronden mooi subtiel om de tekst en figuren te laten stralen.... Blijf je nog even in verhaalland? Ben benieuwd wat je de volgende keer weer laat zien... Groetjes, Gerrina
