ALICE JOURNAL #1

One of my daughters adores Alice in wonderland,
today and, every Friday in April I'll show you pages from the journal
I have made for her.
It started life as a spiral bound drawing pad.
Her middle name is Alice, her first name begins with 'M'....
 being a weirdly unique individual, she often uses M.Alice, on forms, projects etc...
so on the first page I have Alice holding up the 'M'.
Lots of masking needed here.... then coloured with distress inks, fussy-cut and adhered
to the background paper.



I have used a black and white scrapbook paper pad as the base for this journal.
This is the inside of the cover.... a hidden pocket at the top,
a circle for her to write notes in,
I used the small 'Spade' stamp to add interest to the background design....
and the little running Dormouse

.....here she has a pocket containing note paper that
I stamped the corners of.....

and another pocket with stamped note paper included.




Below is the outside front cover....


Supplies used
VERSAFINE ONYX BLACK
DISTRESS INKS (various)

LARGE SCRABBLE ALPHABET SWU06092/38

What a wonderful project! It needs lots of patience because of all the masking, but the result is stunning and unique!
