Mad Hatter Tea Party

This is a double page spread in my creative journal. 
Recently we had a family day out to Whitby (we love Whitby) and we had tea at the Mad Hatter Tearooms. This page was inspired by that visit. 

The background is paint dabbers Cloudy Blue and Sailboat Blue. I kept the background simple as i wanted the rest to be busy.




The Mad Hatter and Alice are both from Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland collection. (This collection is no longer widely available) The toadstools are from Dylusions set Doolally Dorris and the flowers are also Dylusions but from the Background Love set. 


The Caterpillar is from The Octopode Factory and is coloured with Dylusions inks.


The tea party and pumpkin are again from Graphic 45 papers and cut out.


My pic was taken inside the tea rooms and i just printed it out on normal copy paper in grey scale. 
My hat is a stamp from the Dylusions set Doolally Dorris again. I stamped over a piece of the Graphic 45 paper and cut it out. 


The eye border is from Dylusions set Inbetweenies. The bunting is a Dylusions stamp from Bags of Bunting set and stamped onto Graphic 45 paper again.
The small caterpillars are from Dylusions set Bits of This and coloured with Dylusions inks.
