More from Ira Huberts our March Guest Designer!

Ira has made the most amazing book.  The detail is this book is jaw dropping fabulous!!  Here is what Ira had to say about it:

I wanted to “do something” with the Alice in Wonderland theme all along, and I found that the “Playtimes Past” papers worked wonders for me.   I also used scraps of “Fashionista".

I specifically wanted to have the outside look like a book; I even used several famous quotes (book spine, quote is Alice’s) and clock embellishment on the front of the book (quote is Mr. Rabbit’s).  I made the flower in the left bottom corner by using my scallop nestabilities (paper is Childs Play) and folding the petals together.

The queen is embossed with the cuttlebug folder Queen of Hearts, I used cardstock which I inked with several colours.  The clock embellishment is a Playtimes Past Tag, I worked circular word art around it.

In my view the inside should be somehow like a secret garden. And the main house hides what lies beneath, Alice’s world. Two curious faces are looking outside to see who’s coming to visit them and their secrets. I placed Alice on a teacup and tried to insert several symbols of her Wonderland, but since it’s only a small book I couldn’t put anything else in there anymore.  Alice and Mr. Rabbit are coloring pages, I used Derwent coloursoft pencils to color them.

Below is the outside of the book.

All I can say it that this book would be an amazing treasure to pass down.   I have so enjoyed just looking at all of it - super fun!  Thank you Ira!  This is spectacular!
