Madhatterz Tea Party
I had a lot of fun putting this page together. It was inspired by coming across the lady with the teapot body. I put that together a couple years ago and never did anything with it. When I saw it, while going through some of my stash, I thought, it is about time she had some legs. So I went through some of my paper doll collection and found the perfect legs for her. However, she was a bit misproportioned. Looking at her made me think of Alice in Wonderland's Madhatter's Tea Party. So I started doing some image searches on google and found the wonderful picture of the rabbit here. I found the teacup here I tried to find the link for the tea party sign but I can't find it. I have it pinned on my pinterest board but the link brings you to some UK shopping site. Have no idea how that happened. I pinned it so that I could refer back to it to give credit but..... I colored the rabbit and the teacup with distress markers (I really love these markers. They're so versatile). the little birdies were from a teacup photo I found here
I created the background with pan pastels, stencils using distress inks, and some stamps. I printed the words "curiouser and curiouser" and cut them out and colored them with my distress markers. Then I glued everything into place and outlined everything with a Pit Brush pen, to make it stand out. I added a little doodling and there you have it....a page that makes me smile when I look at it.
