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.


  1. That is great!!! I want to try some people like that. I have and idea in my head but when I sit down to do something it flies right out of my thought process. Then I sit ther befuddled. Love the background.

  2. Thanks. We can play when I come at the end of this month. I love the altered art stuff. The last card I made was a little girl that I made holding fish. It makes me laugh every time I look at it. She is posted on my blog some where. I don't like the real creepy altered art.. too scary for me.
