Curious and Curiouser

When I found the picture of my son that I used in "Jack of Spades," I also found a funny self portrait by my niece.  The June kit from my Kit of the Month Club, Scraps of Darkness, was called "White Rabbit."  Some of the papers, from 7 dots studio, came from a collection named "Wonderland."  I just had to turn my niece into Alice.

The hardest part of this LO was actually the leaves.  I used gesso, gel medium, Clear Rock Candy crackle paint, spray inks, glitter, and Crackle Accents.  It took me three day to layer up those vines, so please, if you're feeling motivated, take a close up look.


And, thanks, LGT, for leaving me such a fun picture to work with!

I think the three days of layering were well worth it, this page looks great and what a perfect fun photo to use.

Once again, thank you for your kind comments! I wish I didn't have to wait for drying time! I would have used the heat gun, but did not want any bubbling to interfere with the crackle mediums. I may use the heat gun too zealously!
