I had a lot of fun doing these tags and trying to be "just a little different." My goal since Silver Bella has to try to push myself a little bit farther and do my best work.
As luck had it, I found four wallpaper books at my new favorite store, Art Scraps, in St. Paul. I would guess they are from the seventies and but one had some nice "old fashioned" blue paper that just matched my Alice's...yes, there are two. I am slowly gaining some "real" vintage wallpaper but not enough to use. I am hoarding it!
Here is a picture of both sides of my card,
with an old illustration of Alice and one
from the new movie.
This picture better shows some beautiful antique dishes I own. The one on the left was painted by my great-grandmother, Rose Daniels, about a hundred years ago. I simply love the shape. The china on the right is Limoge which I inherited from my Nana Carol.
This is a nice "melange" that Kat did. You can see the old lace at the bottom. I am becoming a lover of old lace and old embroidery. The lace on this piece is so very fine and beautiful!
Here is the front, which says.
"Mirror, Mirror on the wall.
Who's the fairest Alice of them all?"
I used a little literary license here...we get to be creative, right?
Then there is the lovely mylar mirror. I got a big sheet from Art Scraps for one dollar! This stuff is a bear to work with, though. It picks up any little fingerprint, dust scratches it, so on, so on. But it looks rather cool here!
And here is the "new Alice." It says (from the book)
"You are Absolutely Alice. I would know you anywhere"
I added the,"ME" So, I guess she is the fairest. At least this was my opinion at the moment, especially when I saw this phrase.
Whew! It is off in the mail. I am only wishing I saved one for myself...I never seem to do that. I sent a book to Karla and her grandaughter, Sugarwings. Not before I used the book for Karla to copy that
(And thanks, Kat, for the photography help. You are a gem!)
