I have created this new Alice treasure to showcase the FABULOUS new clear stamps from Alpha Stamps & collage sheets released this week. Oh MY Goodness – they are great & I can’t wait to use them for our up & coming ‘Sally’s Tea Party’ in September, as well as lots of other fun Alice things. This is the treasure I was working on last week that I couldn’t show you yet……. it’s about 5" wide x 40" long & winds around a vintage wooden thread spool that I bought in France. My inspiration was the incredibly long table in the ‘rackham’ image of the ‘tea party’ scene – I wanted to create a tactile impression of the table stretching out before Alice – & her dwarfed by it’s appearance. I have done lots of stitching on this piece so it has a kind of ‘applique’ look – each of the little panels are stitched to each other, & the images are bordered with stitching as well. I have used delicious vintage lace – some napkins with gorgeous tea cups on theme (I made this pre-release of the new ‘tea cup’ collage sheets now available) Although I was excited about creating it – I didn’t realise what a monster I was making to photograph – so sorry the images are a little disjointed. Here it is all joined together, however, given the download constraints for the size of the image, it’s not all that clear.
