Create your magic

Hello Friends ,

Being an avid reader , I remember reading Alice in Wonderland when I was a kid ..

A Vintage Journey has a wonderful challenge  - Through a Looking Glass " Inspired from Alice In wonderland "

While going through all the DT  members project , I found one very inspiring . It was  from Ms. Zoe from IGirlZoe .

Here is what I made  :

I had a duct tape roll sitting on my desk for long ..

An Empty Duct tape roll was transformed .... Want to see the transformation  ???

Lets start ..

The Duct tape roll was first covered with pattern paper around it. Gave a base to it with Hard board and turned it on the side to give a niche  where I can assemble the Alice theme ..

For the Inner part - the inner edge was given a coat of Gesso and Distress crackle . Once the crackle appeared I poured Sunshine yellow Alcoholic Ink over it  . It spread around into the cracks . A lovely yellow - Orange crackled Texture. Archival Ink Potting Soil was rubbed for a little aged look ..I stamped TH stamp on a Paper an stuck it on the inside base ..

 I have given a dew drop effect using the Glossy accent ..

When you turn it Over on the side it has a tendency to roll over .To fix this issue , I mounted it on an Old Empty TypeWriter Reel which was given a coat of Gesso and wound a ribbon to it ..

The bottle was coated with Glue N Seal , once it was dry , applied a coat of Distress Crackle . I love the Crackle effect which the Distress Crackle brings out :) . I used Slate and Summer Yellow Alcohol Ink over the bottle ...

Next I arranged everything in the Niche of the Duct tape roll ..
 A handmade bloom , die cut leaves and few Foam flowers arranged on outside ...
A chipboard Lamp post given a coat of Gesso , distress crackle and Distressed with Archival Ink - Potting Soil ...

Well , Hope you all liked it !!
