I have been a fan of the artwork of Sarah aka Star
for quite some time. Like many years ago when I first saw her
Chibi artwork on the Spesch Designer Stamps site.
Now she has her own shop selling her awesome artwork directly at
I had to grab the Alice in Wonderland images and make something
cool with them, so I made a wall hanging that I'm pretty proud of.
I am super happy with how this turned out.
I began with a drawer insert I had that served as a perfect substrate.
I gessoed it and adhered some distressed vintage feeling designer papers.
Then, I stenciled some diamonds on it using Finnabair platinum crackle paste,
keeping it kind of random.
I colored up the adorable Alice image in blue greens and beige shades
of Copics. I added in some gold tones and a hint of red, too.
I matted the image onto some distressed background papers to add more texture
I used some metal embellishments along with various die cuts from Tim Holtz.
I covered the clock and gear die cuts with Golden Pearl Mica Flake and colored it
using TH distress inks. I also used some gold and amber shades of dew drops,
and some hand colored paper roses in blue greens, as well.
Then it was the Mad Hatter's turn to get some
color. More beige and blue green shades of Copic coloring.
I added some pops of red to give some nice contrast too.
More die cuts, roses, and dew drops were added to finish it all off
and provide some balance to the entire piece.
I made this for my bestie and she loves it. It now hangs in her craft room.
Thanks for dropping by today.
I'd like to enter this wall hanging in the following challenges:
hope it's not too cute for you guys
