Okey-dokie! Today's the day I show you all my Alice in Wonderland inspired pieces.
Thanks to the lovely Staci we're having a curious little blog hop today. This was the most inspired I've been in a while. I have pages and pages of ideas & I'm even rereading the book with my son. My only problem is this is the busiest time of the year for me, and I've added 2 more volunteer positions to my schedule. Ahhh! So here's what I've done. Sorry they aren't all finished, but we've been given the chance to enjoy a little family getaway this weekend and I can't pass that up to sit at my work bench.
This is a polymer clay caterpillar which looks a little gonzo inspired-what a happy accident. I used clear, blue and yellow crystals with accents of pale pink size 11 seed beads and size 15 seeds in sky blue. There is a cute rose clasp too. Sadly though it does not talk or sing.
|I designed the thing, but yet I'm wearing it backwards. What!?!|
I'm not sure yet what this is going to be, but I love it! It's a Tim Holtz keyhole I got from the fabulous B'sue. The chain came from a local fabric shop, and the bunny is from the great kit Andrew Thorton worked with Lima Beads to create. I just didn't receive it in time to participate in that hop.
When I made the caterpillar I made a collection of blue & white swirl beads. Here's what I still have waiting on me. See the giant tear drop?
Well that inspired another piece, but polymer clay wasn't going to give me the desired effect. So I contacted Raida of Havana Beads to make me some giant tears.
|I love them so much!|
Here's how that one is coming along. It will eventually have all the tears on it, but we're leaving in 1 hour and I've packed NOTHING at this point.
The pendant is a microscope slide cut in half. The door images are from a postcard I received recently. Then I used my new soldering skills to make my own pendant. It's rough, but I like it. Oh and the key was brass which didn't fit with everything else so I brushed it with crimson metal paint.
As soon as I get back I'm going to visit all these blogs to check out their pieces inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. You should check them out too.
