Alice´s Halloween Nightmare!


Halloween night... Alice received an invitation to a tea and croquet game in Wonderland.
But she didn´t know that Queen of Hearts has an evil plan!

When she arrives to the Wonderland Castle, the Queen looks like a monster!!
"Come on, Alice..."

"Let´s drink some tea and play croquet!


Take your teacup and a little flamingo..."


But  the "Monster Queen of Hearts" was not the only surprise to Alice in this creepy night...


When the Queen turn around, Alice can see that there are a lot of vampire game cards-soldiers inside of her gown!!!



"Off with her head!" - the Queen said to the soldiers.


Those Vampire card games-soldiers wanted to take off Alice´s head! 


and this is the beginning of Alice´s Halloween Nightmare..............



I made this doll and card game soldiers to participate of The Altered Alice challenge 
"Twinkle like a Bat, Shine like a tea tray!"


I hope you like!

Fall... the perfect time for tea


I know that we can have tea every day of the year, but I prefer when the weather begins to be a little cold, like the "She" song by Elvis Costello:

"She,
May be the face I can't forget 
The trace of pleasure or regret 


May be my treasure or the price I have to pay 
She,
May be the song that summer sings 
May be the chill that autumn brings 
May be a hundred different things 
Within the measure of a day........"


I dedicate this post to every person who enjoy a simple cup of tea, who loves to see a cat playing with a little rock or anything else wich is ordinary, but essencial to our lifes.

Halloween Bride Doll



I bought a skeleton at a €1,99 store and I thought: why not? So, I decided to transform into a "Bride Corpse" (not Tim Burton´s version... hahaha).
This is good to see how we can achieve good results with few $$ and a lot of creativity!
Let´s see it:


Here you can see the plastic skeleton and some things that I use to decorate it.



Here I show you some details: the bridal bouquet, jewels...


I have a lot of ideas and will try to show you soon!
(I hope you like this creepy and sweet bride!)

Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter´s Tea Party



I´m completely crazy by Alice in Wonderland. This was my mother´s name (I don´t like to say "was", because she´ll be forever alive in my heart).
Well, I saw some ATCs (artist trading cards) on a scrapbooking brazilian blog owned by Ana Caldatto. I tried to make some cards and a tea party to celebrate this...

I made a papiermache top hat with some details from Alice in Wonderland.

Odette, the Swan Lake Princess Marionette!

Finally I finished this project!
I´m so excited that I made this doll (thanks to Michele, who helps me to work with the wood).
It was a great experience... and I want to make others!
I have to make the stage for her as well. A lot of ideas come to my head!
Perhaps the next one will be some Nutcracker´s Ballet characther...


Here she lies waiting for the painting and dressing... 
It´s awesome the way she moves (looks like a real person!).


Painted, dressed and ready for stage!


The crown and feathers on the hair, the "tutu" pleated like a real costume and the embroidery corset...
I love the details.



Now is just put the strings and play!
Well, I hope you like Odette!
