Deb’s Alice journal

I must addmit I had a hard time with the journal theme, I hate to say that I couldn’t remember the story. So I had to do a bit of research in my grandchildren’s bookshelf. I based my spread on my granddaughters favourite part of the story.
I started out by sketching the figures directly onto the page
I decided to play around with the tree on separate paper. I didn’t think I could do it again so I collaged  it on to the spread. Then I inked up the rest of my drawing. I decided to use coloured pencils to add the colour 

I finished it off with watercolours and added the verse on the left hand side to finish it off.

I really love the way Deb has made her journal, there is something about altered books that make my heart sing. I hope you enjoy seeing my take on the story.
