ALICE IN WONDERLAND DAY INVITATION.



Dear blog friends,

In a couple of weeks will be the launch of Tim Burtons film Alice in Wonderland.

I am really looking forward to seeing it as I am a great admirer of Tim Burton's work.

It is fascinating to see the impact of Alice in Wonderland in people's art.
Whether we like it or not, Lewis Carroll 's none sense story and vision of childhood has inspired a great number of us.


After visiting numerous blogs, I have discovered so many fascinating paintings, collages, photos reflecting how inspiring this story could be.


So, I thought it would be nice if we could all focus a bit on this story and create something around this topic.

Want an example?
Well, you can go HERE or THERE .

So, how about preparing something around this topic? altogether we can make something special as we did not so long ago HERE .
BUT
this time I will present everything in a slideshow.
YES! you will all be the featuring stars!!!
If you want to join in , just let me know by letting a comment here or you can directly contact me.
Make anything you want, a doll, a painting, take a picture, have a tea party, make a mini etc...
ANYTHING!
You can pass on the news with a link to this post.
On the 8th of March, I will make a post with links to your lovely blogs in order to create our own WONDERLAND MAZE and present the slide show.
(don' forget to confirm when your post is ready before the 1rst March because it takes a while to put images together...)
Hope to hear from you soon!

I have so many thing to do! But c'est trop tentant! et j'aime les challenges qui me boostent l'imagination ou me donnent l'occasion de faire des choses dont j'avais envie depuis longtemps! Le délai est un peu court mais je vais essayer!

Are you curious about me? said...

Hi Patricia

I have just finished making The Queen of Hearts, what great timing. She is not tiny that's the only problem.
What can a queen do when she has nothing to make her shrink?

Hi Patricia, what a lovely idea. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make anything this time.
I made a doll long time ago based on one of the characters from the book. It was fun to make.

tom pouce said...

Merci pour le changement de date! C'est plus "comfy" comme ça!

miniacollection said...

C'est une très bonne idée, j'aime quand tu organises de telles choses. C'est stimulant, je ne sais pas encore si je vais y participer, tout dépendra de mon inspiration. Il va falloir que je réfléchisse, cela me plairait beaucoup d'ajouter ma contribution.En même temps j'ai hâte de voir ce que les autres vont faire.
Je te tiendrai au courant .

Hello Patricia, I try something else, beautiful idea. I like Tim Burtons work, really all my family liked, is a genius. Best wishes

dale said...

It's going to be a lot of fun to see what everyone creates for this project. :)

My favorite lines from the story;

"No room, no room."

"Why there's plenty of room, why, I'll just sit down right here...."

No room, no room!"

and and the classic

"Off with her head!" my fave. ;)

jojo-caramel said...

C'est une excellente idée! compte sur moi :)
