HALLOWE'EN WONDERLAND


I came across a new (well new to me) challenge blog a while ago called OH ALICE! 
The challenge this week is white gloves, white rabbit WHITE WONDERLAND..........everything in your piece has to be white apart from the central image. Great idea for a theme but a nightmare to photograph! My background is made of four different Cuttlebug embossed pieces......cobweb, pumpkins, skulls and Queen of Hearts.


For my main image I made a collage of lots of bits and pieces mostly taken from the Hallowe'en Wonderland papers by Graphic 45 with a couple of stamped images from Invke Arts.


There is an extra embossed heart here too, as I said hard to photograph!

Then there is my button edge, again  not easy to show that it stands out from the edge.




Couple more views of the edge.
Now I believe in credit where it's due.........this button edge is inspired by INGRID DIJKERS.......she has an article in the latest Stampington mage ART JOURNALLING about making the edges of your journal pages more interesting and I just loved the button edging she had done.

Love this Sue, like the fact the collage is in the centre and then the embossing around the outside, something a little different. Love the buttons down the side, neat idea. Much prefer this to the very minimal LOL but then again I don't do minimal. Much more your style I feel. I like your own style, always have. Tracy Evans x

So full of detail, Sue. Must have taken you ages to do; I love all the different elements, especially all the different shaped buttons. The whole piece is very imaginative.

Love the buttons - saw that article & liked the idea ! Do you mind me asking how long it took you to do the edge ? I was a bit put off it would take hours !

Sid said...

Ohhh fab stuff here !! Love your embossing and the button edge. Stunning piece Sue !

Wendy said...

Button edge is fantastic, lots of work but oh so worth the effort. I love the embossing on the white too, there but not sort of thing. Funny, it is sort of minimal as there is no colour around the outer edge like yesterdays piece but this is so much more you, your style and feel. I love what you do so keep on doing it.......
