Alice Altered

I had altered a book a few years ago that was an Alice in Wonderland storybook. And then I gave it away.

When I found an Alice in Wonderland book in a resale shop, I knew that I wanted to make another book.....but not the same as I had made before. I am only posting a few pages of my book.

The tag shown is a plastic tag that I colored using alcohol inks then collaged my images.

I made pockets to insert tags.

My husband drilled holes into the scrabble tiles for me.

This is at the beginning of the book. I colored a grungeboard "a" and inserted an image of Alice. Diamond Glaze was then poured on top of the image even with the depth of the letter A.

I also did a color transfer of the rabbit onto a tag.

This view is the side of the book with all the beads and dangles from the pages inside.

I couldn't resist adding lots of fibers to the spine.

The cover was made using black and white polymer clay. I thought Somerset Studio would be publishing my Alice in Wonderland book, however, after holding my artwork for eleven months, it was returned to me in perfect condition.

I am really surprised that they did not publish this book. It is a wonderful piece of art - better then lots of other things I have seen in their magazines.

You did a wonderful job and I certainly appreciated it.

A wonderful book Sara - a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration! I love the beads dangling from the page edge. :)

This book is beautiful!! Of course, I consider you the book wizard! All your pages are so full of wonderful ideas.

It is always amazing to me the artwork that SS does not publish. Then, when I look through the next issue, I'm always surprised at the pieces they did publish.
