Oh, Alice! New Challenge Blog

Are you counting the days until "Alice in Wonderland" hits the theaters? (On Imax, in 3D, next FRIDAY, YEA!!) Well, you don't have to wait for all things Alice because there's a new challenge blog out there, called appropriately Oh, Alice! I just happened to come across it yesterday and it really gave my mojo a shot in the arm. I dropped everything because the challenges come out every Saturday and combed the net for Alice images. Unfortunately, in my haste, I neglected to note where it came from. The inspiration for this challenge was this cool Urban Decay makeup collection so I sort of went the the colors and added my glam with the Prima Say it With Crystals swirl.
Then I used the reverse of the layered Spellbinder's technique I did HERE so that it looked like you were peeking down the rabbit hole. I found it quite a bit more difficult to do it this way but I LOVE the way it turned out.
However, this made it quite thick so I decided I'd go with a shadow box effect. I intended to make it a card but the reverse side of this K&Co DP was so cool and framed everything so well that I added a large piece to the back so it now measures a whopping 6 1/2 x 8. I may just frame it.


  1. I am counting down the day until I can see this movie. I love anything Johnny Depp and Tim Burton do. I love the way you did this with the Alice in wonderland theme. You should definitely frame it :)
