This week’s art was inspired by ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by Lewis Carrell

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrated by Camilla Rose Garcia | My Review Coming Soon! | Goodreads

I have a thing for Alice in Wonderland….but then who doesn’t? Well I tell you what – my WEDDING was even Wonderland themed. We made hats, mushrooms, stuffed cats, had a door mouse, and an over 6 foot tall papier mache caterpillar that blew smoke (yes believe it!) Among many other things – it was a fabulous day. So when I saw this book I had to have it (I have a small collection of Alice books) plus I love illustrations and these ones are FANTABULOUS! I’ve also included some wedding pictures for you to peruse.

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    Wow! Fantastic photos. Alice in Wonderland will forever ‘IN’ for me, especially for theme for a party. Is that your wedding photos? (I’m curious)

  2. Rhissanna

    Fabulous, fabulous wedding photos. Just wonderful! Hubby and I are huge Alice fans but we didn’t quite get to the themed wedding. We hold cosy little Alice dinners, though, with lobster (of course)jam tarts and checkerboard cake.

    Do I have to submit something recent?

      I LOVE those lacy gloves! You know…I don’t even know where they are anymore *cries* We didn’t make the playing cards but we did hand write the name cards for each person and attached them to an ‘antique’ key with a “key to your seat” board.

      and we had eat me petit feurs favors. muuuwhahahah

      My sister made all the mushrooms with help from me, she made the cat, she also made a mouse. Hubs cousin made the two top hats, his wife made the wedding ring pillows…hubs and his cousin made the caterpillar. A artist made out cake toppers – ooo you saw them they are adorable…and hmm what else was made….the billboard…I’m sure there’s more.

    Oh. My. GOSH. THAT IS AMAZING. Your wedding….ermagerd I HIGHLY ABSOLUTELY APPROVE. Alice in Wonderland is my sort of obsession…and I love all the rewrites and retellings of books, but the art? The art is another kettle of fish entirely. It’s beautiful and I adore the gothic interpretations. x)

      It really was perfect – I can’t even tell you how many different wedding dress boutiques I went to before I found this one. The back when bustled made it look like some exotic bird. It was gorgeous. I can’t believe you only get to wear them once!

    Oh my god girl, those wedding photos are beautiful! You are beautiful! Your husband is handsome too! Damn, you need to share more personal things more often because they was, you guessed it, beautiful! 🙂

      haha Thanks Amanda! I have to agree with you about my husband – he’s a pretty hunky catch in that tuxedo of his. Big dopey wonderful nerd that he is.

      I will definitely try to share more personal things. You are right – this is my blog and I should totally put more of “me” into it lol.

    I love the art you showcase each week. And this is just great. What wonderful wedding photos! I don’t think my husband would have worn a top hat though. We do have pics in a park with snow since the wedding was in January…LOL.

      a snow wedding! How magical! I’ve seen photos of a wedding that took place in the snow. I’ll bet it was lovely. Heck I was surprised I could get him to calm down he wanted a full out costume wedding from all the participants as well!

    Oh my! I am totally jealous of those beautiful photos of your wedding. Alice in Wonderland! You obviously married the right man if he helped you plan such a fabulous event. 🙂

      I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Wonderland! Wouldn’t it be fun if all weddings were themed? The husband and I definitely plan to do a full on costume themed renewal like 20 plus years from now.

      Your wedding is going to be gorgeous. I can’t wait to see you all gussied up =)

      I adore the little drawing I did. I’m REALLY REALLY bad at limbs so my husband has to give me help sometimes. I go begging to him “help me fix my legs” lol.

      The wedding was a blast. And oh yeah – I’m going to buy some copic markers today so I can finally start trying to add color!

    OMG those pictures are so fantastic. And, I love the Caterpillar! Somebody actually told me a few days ago that I reminded them of the Dormouse from Alice because I’m always wanting to nod off! I’m okay with that – although they’re quite mistaken. I’m actually a long lost relative of Rip Van Winkle is all.
    That sepia photo is really good and it makes your dress look feathery!
    Love it.
    Lynn 😀

      Thanks Lynne! The caterpillar was such a big pain to build but I know it was so much fun. We donated it afterwards to a children’s elementary school and they used it in a Alice in Wonderland play they put on. Neat huh?

      The dress really DID look feathery. When it was bustled in the back I looked like some sort of exotic bird.
