    Alice Teapot Tea Party; Dresden on SALE!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Guest Designers, Miniatures, Sale, Tutorials

    Wow, totally not planned but we have MORE Alice in Wonderland artwork today! I am delighted for so many different projects all about Alice. Maybe it’s spring… although I always imagined Alice falling down that rabbit hole in summer: it could have been spring. What with the Mad March Hare and all.

    We had a Mad Tea Party Theatre last Thursday, and Pop-Up Tea Time before that.

    And TODAY: a beautiful tea party INSIDE a teapot by Guest Designer Connie Littell!

    Starting with a bit of intro from Connie’s blog post:

    I am happy to share something special today. I was invited to be a guest designer for Alpha Stamps and made a little Alice In Wonderland tea party shrine using a Little Niche Shrine – Teapot and a Chipboard Teapot Blank. Whenever I make a miniature scene I like to add as many tiny things as will fit. The niche is 2 by 3 inches. Challenge accepted!

    Like the other Niche Shrines, this new teapot shape comes with a tiny scored piece, meant to be glued to the back as a hanger. But Connie used the largest teapot from the new Chipboard Teapot Blanks to glue to the back of the “niche”, making this a standing teapot!

    Back to more from Connie’s blog post (which is filled with tips and how-to photos! Note that I’m skipping down a bit — Connie does give info on covering the teapot with scrapbook paper):

    The tree that holds the Cheshire Cat (cut from the Tin-Sized Alice Collage Sheet) is a 5 inch Creepy Tree with just a little branch cut away to assure the niche opening isn’t completely covered. I painted both sides of the tree with burnt umber acrylic paint.

    The tree needs leaves and I wasn’t excited about cutting a ton of them out by hand. New Laser-Cut Miniature Ivy worked perfectly and was a lot of fun to play with. After figuring out how many sections I wanted to use, I painted both sides with acrylic paint. Once dry, they were glued in place on the tree.

    Beautiful work, Connie! Note: there’s another photo with a close-up of those yummy sweets inside the teapot below in the Giveaway section!
