"We're all mad here!"

I thought I'd had my pages all planned but when I sat down to begin I'd changed my mind. No worries, I was keeping some of my original ideas...vintage, use of silhouettes and collage.
I chose the Mad Hatter's Tea Party from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I've always loved John Tenniel's original illustrations so I plundered an old paperback copy for print and images. I also incorporated vintage music paper from a children's Piano Course. 
I used Ranger Distress Oxides to create the first part of my background, followed by Staz-On, Timber Brown, for stamping. Then I layered my papers, adding the chipboard figures last. As I had enjoyed the Australian Afternoon tea that Sharon had kindly included I wanted to use it, there's my layout. 
I'm so happy with it. Sharon, your journal is so fragrant with all those tea bags...lovely. 
I think I'll have a cuppa now. xox


  1. Great idea to do the tea party Amanda!

  2. What a fun tea party! Who wouldn't want to join in? Love it.

  3. Just love what you have done and glad you enjoyed a cuppa! Can’t wait to see it!
