Alice in Wonderland Scroll

This has to be one of my Favorite project I think I have ever done... I have been thinking about this project for months... It's been floating around in my head for a while, I been getting the piece together to make it...
I adore "Alice In Wonderland" the whole story... But I was inspired to do this project with the Johnny Depp "Alice in Wonderland" movie... Remember the scroll in that movie.

Studio Cloth from UsARtQuest
PVC pipe - two of them... I used the 1/2 inch thick one.. It's what I had in the house
4 Finials.
Stamps: I used lots of different stamps on this project, Most from Oxford Impressions,
other where STampotiques and misc letter stamps...
Ink: Memories Mists: "Pale Ale"
Ink: Palette Hybrid inkpad in "Cognac" and "Raw Sienna"

Misc. Acrylic Paint: I used soft pastel color to my wood. I also aged the color even more with Golden's Glaze "Burnt Sienna"
Closure, this one I have had for a really long time. I believe it's from Making Memories..
Misc. Charms for the ends of your Raffia...
Fabic-Castell Art Grip colored Pencils...


1) Cut your studio cloth to the side of the scroll you want to make. Then spray your Studio cloth with Memories Mists: Pale Ale. Set aside to dry or heat set...
2) Check the side of your PVC pipe to see how much of the Studio cloth will take to cover it. I make both end of my studio cloth with a small mark - this way I know to keep my stamping inside these marks... it's was about 2 1/2" 'sh...

3) I stamp with two colors of ink. My Main IMAGES (Alice in wonderland images) I stamp with the Darker ink " Cognac" and my background image where stamp with a lighter ink, "raw sienna".

4) I color in my Main image only with Fabic-Castell Art Grip Pencils... I want a soft look!

5) I painted my Finials with soft pastel colors and then aged them with Glaze from Golden...

6) After I was happy with my stamping and coloring. I used my Glue GUN to attach my Studio Cloth to my PVC pipes... take your time on this and make sure you get it on straight. It's doesn't come off....

7) After I did this.... I notice I had to make something to keep it closed???? so off to check my stash of stuff... found these Magnetic closure, I believe they are from Making Memories. Add some raffia to that closure and some charms to the end of the raffia. That was the finishing touch it need... OMG, I love it... you can see the closure in the top photo....
