The Altered Alice: Chapter 15 - Week 2 - Any Way You Go Will Get You Somewhere!

`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
`--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.
`Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, `if you only walk long enough.'
-- Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

My Project
I started with a old copy of Alice in Wonderland I found at a thrift store. I love the old graphics in these books.
Once I decided on Humpty Dumpty I cut the chapter title page out of the book to move it to the front. Then I cut the whole to make my scene.  The background image of Humpty if from the Alice in Green Collage Sheet.  I used this image as my color inspiration. I used Modge Podge to adhere it and to glue the pages of the book together.
Every few pages I added the black Half-Round Dresden Borders or the vine border punch.  I colored
the stamped image of Humpty from the Alice's Adventures Rubber Stamp Set with Copic markers and aged him with distress ink.  The white rabbit that is peeking out at the scene is from the Alice Characters Collage Sheet.

 I added lots of washi tape. 
   On the ribbons I have tied the Verdigris Rabbit Charm and a Chunky Little Bottle filled with green glitter and a Drink Me tag.

And if you just can't play along, you can still enjoy ALL ALICE ON SALE at Alpha Stamps, now until May 26, 2012. So get going and let's see where you go with this fabulous Alpha Stamps challenge!
