Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Very therapeutic

Well I was supposed to be tidying/organizing my craft room but I got a bit sidetracked when I came across Pbirds Round Robin page which I really should have passed on by now! (sorry Paula will pass it on tomorrow!) but anyway I had been musing over Paula's theme of Imagine and then came across my new acrylic bits and my Alice in wonderland stamps, which were out because I am sadly lacking inspiration for an AIW swap...

Anyway back to the plot... if Lewis Carroll didn't have an amazing imagination no-one did, so I decided to base the RR page around Alice. So here it is, I had a delightful time doodling/colouring and really like the result. My colours are getting brighter and bolder by the day! If I was a proper artist I could say I was going through my 'Bright Period' lol

The strange surreal stuff on the side is some Vilene that I was bought for my birthday... spray it heat it, it becomes holey... am I doing it right?? Anyway looks cool here! I did have a bit of a blonde moment though, thought it may be a good idea to put it through my hardly ever used Xyron machine, except I had a laminating cartridge in it.. whoops! with much care I managed to extract it!
It's a bit different from my normal stuff (if you can call anything normal) so I hope Pbird likes it!


  1. It's wildly imaginative Nicks - but we wouldn't expect anything less - lol! Love the Alice tile in the middle.

  2. This page is so cool and whimsical. Love the vilene material on the side.

  3. ooooooooooh I like this. Very different for you but it is great as is all your stuff

  4. I like it very much too :) It arrived this afternoon (my postie works the backshift i think!!). It is brilliant, totally what I had hoped for, something different and whatever took your fancy on the day ... love it!! Thanks Nicks x
