Alice in Wonderland Push Pins set - AIW Blog Hop!

Howzit Dominoians and Happy 4th of July!

Most of you know how much I love Alice in Wonderland and my passion for AIW goes hand in hand with my passion for altered game art.  When I was invited to participate in an Alice in Wonderland blog hop to celebrate the 150th Birthday of the Book hosted by Suzi Baker McKensie I could not resist!  I wasn't sure if I was going to get the blog roll in time before I'm away from my computer for a while so more names could have been added to the blog roll already but Suzi kindly let me still play and provided the blog roll early enough for me to add at least a partial list to my post!  Thx Suzi for your understanding and letting me still play!

Alice in Wonderland illustration stamps available at Lost Coast Designs, we have a whole category dedicated to Alice so stop by and check them all out!

Today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;

Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th, with winners announced on July 20th.

Today I'm sharing a set of altered Bendomino "Alice in Wonderland" Push Pins.  I love using Bendominoes for my Alice projects, which are curved dominoes, coz the quirkiness of their shape ties in so nicely with the quirkiness of the entire Wonderland story!

The Alice in Wonderland illustration stamps I used are available at Lost Coast Designs.  We have a whole category dedicated to Alice so stop by and check them all out!

I used the tri-colour Pearlescent Brilliance ink pad called Tiramisu to create the variegated background on the surface of all 4 Bendominoes and heat set before stamping the Lost Coast Designs Wonderland images with black Archival ink and then heat set again.  Each Bendomino was edged with a broad point metallic liquid gold DecoColor paint pen and Tim Holtz paper tape with a script design, cut in half to fit, was applied around the sides.  I used Judikins Diamond Glaze to seal the design and the sides of all the Bendominoes and adhered flat topped metal push pins to the backs with E6000 glue.

I look forward to hopping to see your fabulous AIW inspired projects but I'm away from my computer for a bit and will comment on them all as soon as I can!  Thank you for visiting with me today and for leaving me some love!  Your next stop is Claudia!

Domino Hugs!
