Altered book- Alice in Octopode

Darn it. Missed it again. I keep missing the Octopode Factory challenge. Time keeps escaping me....... I made this for last week's challenge of Time. Bother.


It started off life as a boring blue book about indexing.....


.......Now it's been inked and sprayed and stamped and collaged to within an inch of it's former life.


 I used nearly a whole pack of dewdrop gems on this one. Totally worth it though.

The images are all Octopode Factory- with a bit of glaze gel pen highlighting.


Well, the good news is that it still fits the Altered Alice brief for this month- to have a teacup or teapot on your project, with the optional extra of your focal image not being stamped. So, hurray, there's a bit of a silver lining. Now, to get on with the next Octopode challenge.....might have that done by September......;)

  2. Thanks so much for playing along with The Altered Alice! Aren't monthly challenges a lot less stressful? I could never keep up with the weekly challenges either. Love your brilliant colors, and yes, the dewdrops were totally worth it! My favorite detail is the rainbow bricks on the house, love the way you colored that!

  7. OMG!!!! Super AMAZING!!! LOVE the bright colors and the cascade of flowers flowing from the pot. Octopodes are my fave images but I'm having a bit of a hard time keeping up as well. Mine end up being less than I'd like. Yours is BRILLIANT! xxD
