Nonsense

 The challenge on ALTERED ALICE this month was to use text as nonsense - not to read but as pattern on your project,  you could still have words or sentiments, but the main thing was to use text used in a non-reading way. The challenge is now closed but I have had such a busy month I didn't get to show my project before now!
 My piece started out as this book.......it was in THE WORKS.....as you can see it was a buy one get one free bargain! I turned it into one of my fav folded paper page thingies! The pieces out the sides are the book covers.
 This month ALTERED ALICE was sponsored by a UK stamp company.........
STAMP ATTACK......they have several Alice themed stamp sets...I used Mad Hatters Tea Party and Alice 2 sets
 These silhouette images are a bit different.....I love them! I used them stamped in black for dramatic effect around the centre of my piece.................

 and also stamped on thinner paper in a pale ink and added to the sides of the piece to give a shadowy effect

Man, this is gorgeous Sue... How did you make that one? Is this a book that you made to stand up and added the silhouettes? You need to consider an workshop on how to do this. I love it. It looks great, which is an understatement. I love the stamps you used... It looks as if they are on a carroussel... Wonderful!
