CHAPTER 23: We're All Mad Here so Anything Goes!


"We're all mad here" is the favorite Alice quote of artist Rick St. Dennis, so the challenge was anything goes! Be mad! Get cute, get creepy, get crazy, because Rick St. Dennis has amazing digi stamps in all those styles, including many wonderful AIW images!

Designer of over 100 theatrical productions, Rick St Dennis (Donald McAfee) is also the author of 4 books on decorative painting and contributor to at least a dozen national magazines on crafts and art. St. Dennis has appeared on such TV shows as Home Matters with Susan Powell, Aileen's Crafts and others. He was Crafts editor for Country Folk Art Magazine and sold his artwork nationally through galleries and shows. For a complete bio of his amazing career, see Rick's blog!

Design Team Inspiration

We have the final installment of calendar pages from Bonnie McLain of Love Light and Peace Her fabulous calendar features Rick St. Dennis' wonderful illustrations plus her own "tangled" hand-drawn embellishments! Be sure to visit her blog to see the entire calendar pages, and be sure to leave her a comment on these wonderful creations!
September - Bonnie has the Cheshire Cat frolicking in the fall leaves!

October - Bonnie has certainly done justice to Rick's zombie Alice!


November - Alice and company have gathered!

December - Merry Creepmas!

These photos are just a hint of the complete project: see September through December on Bonnie's blog - you must go to Bonnie's blog to see the full calendar pages and they are gorgeous, well worth the visit! Please leave Bonnie a comment while you are there, and see January through April and May through August as well.


I will be back tomorrow with the winner and honorable mentions! Sorry for the delay, I have been working way too much overtime and the end of the month is always a high demand period. While you are waiting, please enjoy all the wonderful projects submitted by our lovely readers, linked below. (Note: if you are viewing this post in a reader or email, please click on the title of the post to go to the blog to see the entries or submit a project.)
