150th Anniversary Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop!


Happy 4th of July!  In addition, today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork throughout the Hop today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;







Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the Hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th so you have plenty of time, with winners announced on July 20th.  Hopefully you've arrived from Milo's inspiring Blog.  If not, perhaps you'd like to start at the beginning.  See list below.  Here's my Alice in Wonderland inspired project.


  Gotta say, red is my favorite color, so the Queen of Hearts is one of my fave AIW characters.  I've made a wall hanging using the fabulous Queen of HeArts 2013 by Rick St Dennis MFA.  I've used all Spellbinders Dies  to create this wall hanging with a computer generated sentiment and black beads and swirls from Recollections.  



Here's a closeup of Queen of HeArts 2013.  She's colored with Copics with some additional shading with Prismacolor pencils.  Obviously she's in a good mood.  No beheadings today, me thinks.  This is just one of the fabulous Queen of Hearts stamps available in Rick's Zibbet Shop and there are many more Alice in Wonderland inspired stamps there as well.  Keep hopping and you'll have a chance to win a few, or something from one of our other exceptional sponsors.  Next stop is Leigh.  Prepare to be amazed.  Here's the entire list, in case you get lost or want to start at the beginning.
