Blog Give Away and A Different Kind of Alice

Alice ATC

This ATC was made for TGIF's Alice in Wonderland theme. The central image was given to me over a year ago by my dear,sweet student Anastasia, who said it looked just like something I would use. I've been saving her for just the right collage, Anastasia. Alice's eyes and lips were already technicolor, and I enhanced them a little more with Prismacolor. Face and hair are acrylic paint and black Pentel gel pen. Peonies are courtesy of Whiteflower Farm's Fall 2009 catalog, and the hat, playing card, and doodles are my own work.

The winner of my Dia de los Muertos journal page is Jennifer at NOLAA Gallery in Ohio. If you've never been to her blogs, you're in for a treat. Her gallery is full of fantastic work by so many diverse artists, and you can see Jennifer's own glorious folk art at her blog Gallery Girl. Thank you all for stopping by and sharing this special Dio de los Muertos with me.

You always make the diverse elements of your collage sing together so beautifully. This is a fresh, contemporary take on the Alice theme. Great stuff x

Wow! Once again, you've blown me away. I love this so much. When you alter images, you do it in such a way that it just grabs me. You make me want to be friends with Alice!
Peace & Love,
