This is for the CC3C challenge #23. Click the link to join in #24! Inspiration Emporium is a sponsor where you can buy some nifty jazz for all your crafty purposes! Today was the last day to post and BOY did I cut this short. Here is a shot of the naked Tim Holtz folio. Don’t worry, it’s G rated! 😉
I decided to do my folio project on… drumroll… Alice in Wonderland!! I went searching online for the original manuscript, which can be found here and the original artwork by Sir John Tenniel to Lewis Carroll’s dear story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland! It actually doesn’t mention the Cheshire Cat nor the Mad Hatter OR the Un-birthday Tea Party anywhere. Nonetheless, I included them in my folio because it’s my play time… and in my world I say Cats and Hats are where it’s at…s… SO without further ado… pictures of my folio project: I choose a couple of key phrases and used a super cool “alice in wonderland” font.
Once I know which parts of the story I wanted to include, the story in pictures looked
like this. It’s organized chaos!
I wanted to create a rabbit hole, that went through the entire book. This presented the challenge of making each page front and back while still having a nice display that made since to the story.
Here’s a shot of the rabbit hole beginning to take route.
Each of Sir John Tenniel’s drawings were all black and white. Truly amazing when you think about it because you are using your imagination to color these images while reading a story created from the imagination of Lewis Carroll of a young girl’s imagination. Deep rabbit hole indeed!!
This poem is actually part of the Jabberwocky, which is a poem by Lewis Carroll. In the Disney cartoon the Cheshire Cat sings it. Not part of the original story but still charming.
I choose the charm with the phrase “reality has limits. imagination is boundless”. Fitting don’t you think!?
Here’s pics of the complete project:
