I just put the finishing touches on a big project that has been keeping me extra busy these past few weeks. So of course I had to share. It's Cirque du Wonderland -
An auburn-haired Alice-
An acrobat cat-
You gotta love that Cheshire grin!
The White Rabbit, giving a whole new meaning to time management-
Each little pocket watch was made from a slice of a dowel with a little eye hook in the top and a bit of paperclay, then painted burnt umber, sanded, and painted gold. Then I printed out an interesting looking old clock face and decoupaged that on there. They're all happily floating along one of Dylan's guitar strings with the aid of some teeny tiny crimping beads .
The Tweedle Twins, never agreeing-
I carved their little propellers out of wood. They really spin too.
And last but not least there's a strongman who's as mad as a hatter-
And what hatter would be complete without a doormouse perched atop his hat?
Now on to the next challenge!
PS- This whole set was a comissioned piece, so none of them are for sale. However, one of the pieces will turn into a limited edition. You'll just have to wait 'til Sunday to find out which one. Oh, she's such a tease!
