Hi there Creative Embellishments Fans! Sarah here today to share a super fun new project with you! This is my Halloween in Wonderland Configuration Book – combining two of my absolute favourite things – Halloween and Alice in Wonderland!
I started out with a Tim Holtz Configuration Book, which I covered with the blue-toned papers from the G45 collection. Then, I started layering elements from the papers, along with some awesome CE chipboard pieces, to create my cover design. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a keyhole shape from the black & white check paper and layered that over main image from the collection’s signature page. Next, I cut the characters from a second sheet of the signature page so I could pop them up to create a 3D effect. I added the CE “We’re All Mad Here” title and the Mad Hatter Top Hat (from the We’re All Mad… chipboard set), which I painted with Prima Sparks acrylic paints. I also added in some CE Pumpkins and Pumpkin Vine Flourishes – painted with Prima Sparks and Prima Metallique Acrylic Paints. Finally, I finished off the cover with a Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Door Plate and Knob and a Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Key.
For the inside of the Configuration Book, I tried to include images of all the main characters from the Wonderland Books. On the left side, I I had to include the Mad Tea Party image, layered on some of the checked paper – I added some stickers from the collection to three of the corners, and one of the cups from the CE Tea Cup Set, which I painted with Prima Sparks and Prima Metallique Acrylic Paints.
For the right side, I used the following CE chipboard elements:
- Mini Web – painted white and then coated with Frosted Lace Stickles
- Simple Key Hole Plate – painted with Prima Metallique Acrylic Paints, with Prima Brads and a peek-a-boo image of Alice from the G45 papers
- One of the open Books, painted with Prima Metallique Acrylic Paints and stamped using the CE Distressed Text Stamp
- An Arched Window (with the Arch cut off) – painted with Prima Metallique Acrylic Paint
- A few Potion Bottles, painted with Prima Sparks Acrylic Paints and decorated with some circle images punched from the G45 papers
- Another Pumpkin (same as on the cover)
- One of the Mini Mushrooms, painted with Prima Metallique Acrylic Paint
- Creepy Gates – painted with Prima Metallique Acrylic Paint – and hinged so the gates open to show the little scene in behind
