Alice In Wonderland


"Curiouser and Curiouser" said Alice!
A new OOAK piece I finally completed. I have been working on this piece off and on for awhile now.
I had always wanted to do a Alice In Wonderland piece and incorporate the various characters into it so this was the project.

I love doing Mixed Media pieces and so I started with a box and went from there. Alice is handsculpted from fimo clay and if standing would be approx. 10" tall. I wanted her to be a little bit "Edgy" something different than the traditional blonde Alice with the blue and white dress and pinafore.
Of course Alice would not be complete without her silly friend the Mad Hatter. 
He is also sculpted from polymer clay and dressed in vintage fabrics complete with his cup of tea and toast. 
All details were made from scratch

Another character I always enjoyed was the March Hare. This fellow was needlefelted from mohair, with handmade eyes and teeth. 
What a silly guy he is!
Alice is so disgusted with the little crying pig-baby. She came become quite a nuisance!
The illustrations of the little baby that turned into a pig always amused me...especially with Alice trying to deal with it. I tried to capture that in the expression of this screaming baby! ;-)
"Eat Me"    "Drink Me" 
Of course the sly Cheshire Cat has to make an appearance!
Alice's Throne

 Loved this clock for the back of her chair....spinning...down....down...down.

Many, many hours and details went into this piece.

I hope you enjoy it!

Oh Penny! Thank you! You are always so sweet and thoughtful. Yes...I have been working on this off and on for over 2 years. I would get bored with it...put it away...then drag it out and work a little more. I must say I am glad it is finished. Feels good to move on now to a new project. Thank you for the compliments on the rabbit. I have done a few needlefelted projects. He took almost as long as Alice did! LOL Thank you for stopping in! You are a sweetheart! xoxox Marcie ;-)

Hello dear Marcie,
Just came by to say hello.. It's spring already, where has the time gone.
I hope all is well with you and that you are creating...
If you have time, come on over and sit a while on the front porch and take in the roses.
Love and blessings,
