Living next door to Alice


This is my first entry for the Altered Alice blog. I wasn't expecting to have time to join in, but due to a change of plans I've had a little bit of unexpected crafty time so I've managed to quickly create something. If you've not visited Altered Alice you need to; there is some seriously amazing creativity on display - don't worry, I'm about to go and lower the tone :)

This was inspired by a song with the same title by Smokie (from the seventies) that was on the radio earlier in the week.

The images are digistamps from the Octopode Factory.

  4. These are fantastic! Your 'naive' style here perfectly compliments your chosen images......
    How is this going to lower the tone, please? I'd like to know.
    They are so sweet and my favourite part is the window box full of pretty little flowers...smiles all round. Oh, and another favourite bit is where you have pulled out the corrugations. I do that, but you have painted them quite heavily and they look curved...very interesting and nice!!!!!!

  5. I don't mean your style generally is naive, but that you have slected it to match the stamps here.
