Be sure to check out the assembly video for this post at the bottom of the post in the Assembly Video section.
I started page 5 before the new desk delivery. I picked out the quote, stamps, layout, and papers a few weeks ago and tucked them away into a little acyrlic stacking tray for after desk assembly. I included notes on Slickynotes so I wouldn't forget what I had planned when I got back to it.
In order for my sketchbook to make it into the traveling exhibit I have about a month left to finish so I'm stepping into high gear.
Page 5 - Alice in Wonderland
I don't intend to have any duplicate movies in this sketchbook. Deciding which Alice in Wonderland quote to use was the hardest part of this page.
In the end I decided on the quote because it had two leadership lessons:
- Make commitments to yourself and set out to follow through.
- But... don't beat yourself up if you don't hit all your goals. Just figure out what you learned for your next go at it and move on.
The background is a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackable. I added a Lawn Fawn Mini Picture Frame to show off some gold acccented teapot paper. I used Tonic Studios Crystal Drops in glossy Apple Green to give the appearance that the frame was hanging crooked.
The critter is a combination of two stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, Believe in Yourself and Thanks a Latte. Using post it notes as a mask I layered the stamps so that the cute little jackalope would be inside the cup. I used my Micron fine liner pen to add the stripe on the cup so I could color it like the Mad Hatter's hat.
Everything was colored in with Copic markers. I added some glitter to the jackalope with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
Below is a video of the assembly of page 5. I did the jackalope stamping and coloring at an earlier time.
Thanks for reading!
