This year on Paperarts Yahoo Group we are having a "Alice In Wonderland & Through The Looking Glass" Challenge.
This month it was 'The Red Queen" theme.
I chose a pic of Helen Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. Love the clothes, make up, especially the lips!
I decided to use a frame I got from Wednesday Wishes & some good old alfoil to make it look like a looking glass.
The background is peeled paper technique.
Let me know what you think of it.

On the Yahoo Group Papertraders I am involved in a 'Gothic Arches' swap. The theme is 'Renaissance Women". Along with the arches, you had to include a charm. The charms will be added to the spine when the book is finished with covers etc.
My charms are etched metal with  a few beads.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the returns.

Twinchies, Twinchies, Twinchies..........................

For the Creative Soul Retreat this year at The Country Place in Kalorma we are doing a 'Leonardo Da Twinchie' swap.
Twinches are very small, only 2 inches square, and the subject is 'all things Leonardo Da Vinci'.
We have to make 25.
Elizabeth & I decided to get together to make ours.
We had a 'trying' day, but, were rapt that we got them finished.
These will be the first & last lot of twinchies I will ever make, MUCH too small for moi!!
