Oops...forgot to share Alice...

I think I somehow completely forgot to share Alice!

About a year ago I was taking one of my afternoon jaunts through my little town and found this wonderful square piece of wood. Apparently it had been left behind by a construction crew. I had recently gone to hear an artist speak about creating art with found objects. Well...I took this as a sign and snatched it up. It has been sitting in my studio since that day just waiting to be transformed. Finally, I had the idea of adding some paperclay to the wood. Paperclay works extremely well with colored pencils!

After waiting several days for the clay to dry completely I took off and this is what I came up with.....hope you love her!

Along with the paperclay and colored pencils I used acrylic paint (to brighten her eyes), watercolor (for the sky) and cut paper and glitter for the stars.

Alice has been lost in Wonderland for way to long......as she waves goodbye she has stars in her eyes.

This piece is roughly 11.75 inches square and was created with colored pencils on paper clay and paper that was affixed to an upcycled piece of wood. Piece has been sealed with a hard coat for added protection. Hardware has been affixed to the back so that it is ready to hang right out of the box.
