The Altered Alice - Chapter 1 - Week 4

We are now on week 4 of our challenge CHANGES IN FORM AND DRESS FORMS and Stampotique Originals is sponsoring our first month with a $30 gift certificate for one lucky winner, see my original post HERE for my first piece of art and all the details to enter the challenge. Carol from Stampotique kindly sent the DT a stamp of our choice so I thought I would take the opportunity to create a second piece for The Altered Alice.
I chose KARIN as I thought she made a perfect Alice.  I decided on a journal page this time around which I coloured with Distress Inks.
I reduced Karin's size just like Alice was reduced in size and I added the text 'Curiouser and Curiouser'.  The Mushrooms are also a Stampotique image along with the Swirl Stalks stamped along the bottom edge of my page.
I also added text torn from an Alice In Wonderland book "However, I've got back to my right size:" which I thought was quite fitting for my journal pages.
There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge for a chance to win this fabulous prize from Stampotique, simply click on the link above for all the details and to view some wonderful pieces from our Design Team and our entries.  Enjoy your weekend, Tracy x x

I LOVE your project, your surgery on Karin was absolutely inspired! The colors are so lovely and inviting, and those text diamonds down the margins are my favorite finishing touch! I am so glad you are on The Altered Alice design team! :-)
