You can see my striped art journal page at Savvy Sisters Studio. I had a wonderful time creating a striped background by repeatedly sponging through stencils, then layering on some clock faces with another stencil. The images from our sponsor, Alice in Wonderland by Danita, were so much fun to color, and I had a good time doodling and selecting quotes to go next to each character. Please stop by Savvy Sisters Studio to see all the details and leave me a comment!

Dawn of Craft Addiction submitted this lovely original watercolored pen and ink illustration. Absolutely beautiful. Alice's face is lovely, but it is the smiling expression on the white rabbit's face that grabs me! I am a knitter, so Alice's fingerless mitts also make me smile!

Lily Pink Scraps submitted this vibrant entry. I love the layers and bold stripes, and the black, white, red and gray color combo is so effective and dramatic. The clever caption is perfect for this image of the Dormouse, famous for sleeping through tea parties!
I couldn't leave without commenting on the shimmering mica powder stripes on this high-energy card from Sid of Harpies Crafty Corner. I love all the different chess stamps and the vibrant color scheme, and the Alice running image is so perfect!
