"So she sat on, with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull reality--the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reeds--the rattling teacups would change to tinkling sheep- bells, and the Queen's shrill cries to the voice of the shepherd boy--and the sneeze of the baby, the shriek of the Gryphon, and all thy other queer noises, would change (she knew) to the confused clamour of the busy farm-yard--while the lowing of the cattle in the distance would take the place of the Mock Turtle's heavy sobs." -- Chapter 12, Alice's Adventures in WonderlandChanges are coming for The Altered Alice. Due to pressures of work and other pesky distractions, our last regularly scheduled challenge will begin on May 12. So this week we are sponsor-free and the design team members are sharing any projects they like that show their love of Alice.
I invite you to do the same and show us your love of Wonderland. You may enter older projects for this challenge only. Enter by the end of June to share the best of your Wonderland creations with our community.
We will of course have honorable mentions and a challenge winner, but you will be playing for the glory this month as we do not have a sponsor.
Our last regularly-scheduled challenge will be sponsored by Stampotique, who took a chance on us and sponsored our very first challenge. I like the symmetry, alpha and omega, closing the circle.
We may have challenges in the future, but they will be more spontaneously scheduled, and in the meantime we will share "Alice sightings" and miscellaneous Alice projects with you, so stay tuned!
