Alice Round Robin - book #1

I received Judi's book first in our Alice in Wonder- land Round Robin 2011.  Since I was first to work in her book, I wanted my pages to reflect the beginning of Alice's journey.  I chose my background paper with "dreamy" colors and the words:  imagine, dream, grow, create, become.
I constructed a small book at the top of the left page.  I randomly cut text from the beginning of the story to adhere to the page in the book.  Under each side of the little book are of Alice and one of the White Rabbit.  Tucked under the edge of the book is a picture of Alice following the White Rabbit down the hole.  I added tea cups around this picture as she was seeing many such items on the shelves of cabinets as she fell.  The tea cup on the right is dimensional and has a tea bag string hanging out of it with my favorite tea on it.  ")  At the bottom of the page I placed a stamped image of three watches and the sentiment says:  Time just keeps ticking.  I placed small round clear fragments over the faces of the watches (Tim Holtz).  I tucked a butterfly image under the upper edge of this stamped image.  I added three floral inchies around the page.

On the right-hand page I placed a sanded, distressed Alice in Wonderland playing card and surrounded it with several stamped posies.  I then stamped a little book, cut it in half and added more text from the beginning of the story and made "bookends"  around the playing card.  Next I stamped the White Rabbit and colored him in with colored pencils, cut out the image and adhered it to the lower right corner of the page.  Finally I cut out the stamped letteres that spell "DREAM" and added them to the page.  I edged both pages with a brown inkpad before adhering them to the pages in Judi's book.  Her book covers really give her book that "storybook" look.  ")
