Alice didn't dare to argue the point, but went on: `-- and I thought I'd try and find my way to the top of that hill -- ' `When you say "hill,"' the Queen interrupted, `I could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley.' `No, I shouldn't,' said Alice, surprised into contradicting her at last: `a hill can't be a valley, you know. That would be nonsense -- ' The Red Queen shook her head, `You may call it "nonsense" if you like,' she said, ` but I've heard nonsense, compared with which that would be as sensible as a dictionary!' -- Chapter 2, Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found ThereFor the challenge this month at the ALTERED ALICE Lynne wants us to use text in a non reading way. I decided to use the Mad Hatter digi from the Octopode Factory.
I started of by taking a page from an old Alice In Wonderland book and splatting it with worn lipstick, rusty hinge and broken china Distress Stain, then I crumpled it up, opened it out again and attached it to a tag. I then took a picture of the tea party from the book, coloured it with old paper and vintage photo Distress ink and attached to the tag, then I added some gold cord. I printed the Mad Hatter and coloured him with Promarkers, cut him out and attached him to the tag. I crumpled up a die cut flower and leaf and coloured them with Distress ink, then stamped some unreadable words onto the flower using a Tattered Angels stamp, these were attached to the tag and I put a gem into the middle of the flower. I made a couple of hat pins by sticking some beads to a couple of dressmakers pins and then stuck them in the Hatters hat.
