What a treat to work with them!!!!!
So when I got my 8x8 tablet the first thing I wanted to do was start cutting them apart....It only seems right. But always save the 2nd copy of the page if you can. Just in case you like to look at it again. It's a sickness.
I used the 7Gypsies Printer's Tray that is so wonderful because it needs nothing to get started! It's already painted black AND distressed! What more could I ask for? I paint most everything black anyway.
This is a closeup of the detail in the top row. It's my favorite. The Rabbit collage is 4 layers of papers. I like to use pop dots to bring dimension to everything, and let the larger pieces go "out of the box."
I made some elements brighter or toned them down with Distress Inks (of course). And it's very hard to see, but I used Glossy Accents on several pieces, like the Candy Corn, the Cheshire Cat on the bottom, and the Pocket Watch top corner for more dimension.
I've had the little gold charms forever. Don't know who made them or where I got them, but they were perfect since they were from Alice in Wonderland. If someone knows the info, let me know and I'll give credit. They had to be from a convention somewhere.
So, that's it for today. Don't forget to check out the Ranger Blog for Suze's Video and more tutorials!
Have a good one!
