I tried very hard........

........to be a little more conventional.......well as conventional as Alice with pumpkins can be..............but I just couldn't do it so I GIVE UP......I ADMIT IT.......I like things a bit strange, a bit weird, a bit outside the box!
 So this page (in my A4 journal) was going to be just Alice and some more of those stitched pumpkins that I said I was going to use again over quite a pale (for me) background with some stencilled leaves.........so far so good..................

Sue, your Oh, Alice! contributions have been truly FABULOUS! Thanks so much for playing along, you are really raising the bar! I appreciate all the effort you are putting into these challenges and your results are so inspiring. And hey, this is JABBERWOCKY, why would we BE here if we wanted to see soft and pretty and conventional, LOL! Plenty of that elsewhere! And seeing more of your stitched pumpkins along with a blue-lipped Octopode Alice just makes me really happy!

I admire your work because its not conventional, it's unique, unusual, different and makes you stand out from the crowd. This piece is fab and I love the Alice image and the way you pull everything together is wonderful. Tracy Evans x
