Alice in Wonderland Mini Album

Well here it is, the longest post in history, lol.
I am finished with the mini album.
I have been talking about this "Alice in Wonderland" mini album and working on it since February.
And I am finally finished :)  This makes me so happy :)
Here is the front cover of the book. I added lots of dimension as Heather likes dimension, and well, this is her book.
Isn't this paper beautiful. Lots of fussy cutting on here.

Alice and the bike (penny farthing) are from my DT mini album kit from Enchantments Scrapbooking.
Alice was just a silhouette. I covered her with copic paper and drew and coloured her up. Her arms were cut from some other image that I played around with the sizing and again coloured.
See the white rabbit running in his hole? 

 Here Alice is falling down the rabbit hole. I wanted to have her more animated as the world she is entering is strange.
I made this tiny book with just pictures as Alice had said "In my world the books will have nothing but pictures."

Here Alice went and drank the liquid, silly girl.
Here is the door open, so you can see what is on the other side ;)

 Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum come into the story here. They tell Alice about the Walrus and the Carpenter and about the curious Oysters.

I made these tags to go with the story.

On the backs of the tags I put on some of Heather's photography.
The door is a fairy door that my dad made.
The clock is one of Heather's D.Bay gifts from last year.
The key with the lock is a photo shoot that Heather came up with. I thought is was so cool.

Alice went into the house and ate a cookie.
See what happens when you don't ask, lol.
The house is from a chipboard mini from Michael's $1.50 bin. I painted the house and added the shutters out of thin chipboard.
I drew and coloured Alice so it looked like she outgrew the house.

Alice meets the singing flowers. I love the Bread and Butterflies, and the Rocking Horseflies.
Everything about this movie is so unusual and has a play on words.

Some more of Heather's photography inside the pockets on the tags.
This is a photo of Ashley. Heather came up with the idea to put a bird nest (yes this is a real nest) on her head and entangle her hair to look like it is part of the nest. Love this picture.
I put this one in, because when Alice was in the forest, she grew and a nest got caught in her hair. The bird kept yelling Serpent.
This is one of Heather's favourite parts of the book. I copied it and shrunk it down to fit the tag.

Of course what is the story without including the Caterpillar :)
The mushrooms are all stamps that I coloured and fussy cut.
I coloured Alice and the Caterpillar with my Copics.

Heather's favourite character in the book and movie is the Cheshire Cat.
On this page I showcased all the characters that she had met so far.

I love this paper so much I didn't want to cover it up. So I made these pages flip so once it is open you get to see that beautiful paper.

Here is that same page with the flaps opened up. I added some pockets and tags.

Here are some more photos that Heather took.

The last page is dedicated to the Queen of Hearts.
All of these images were in black and white. I think I may have just copied them from the book. I coloured them with my Copic markers and popped up the main images.
Lots of fussy cutting in this book.

On the back cover I used a picture I got off the internet of the Cheshire Cat, with the another one of Heather's favourite quotes from the movie.

So there you have it. I am really happy with how it turned out.
Heather said it was Awesome, so that is all that matters.
Here is a video I made of the book if you want to take a closer look.

  Onto my Day:
I started yet another mini album.
Not as detailed at this one though.
I am trying a new type of mini and a new kind of binding.

Hope you all had a creative Thursday:)
And I want to Thank You so much for all your sweet comments on my 1st DT project.
Actually thank you all for visiting me and leaving me comments. You all brighten my day, put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart <3
