Alice Through the Iron Gates

Another oldie today - I could have sworn that I've blogged this before, but after a thorough search, it appears not!

I used layers of chipboard to form a compartment, which I gilded with metal leaf on the inside. It contained some Alice-themed playing cards and a mini-book with part of the story and some of Tenniel's classic illustrations.

Chipboard doors were added with metal hinges and fastenings.

[Edited to add - Google is telling me I blogged this in Oct '07, but I can't find the post! I can only think I deleted it at some point, but for what reason I can't imagine! Ah well, here it is again, lol]

Why you would delete it, I cannot imagine!! I love your tags and other bits of artwork but really Dan, these are the things I love the most that you make.

This is fab. I love anything "hidden" and opening layers to see what's beneath -very clever, and especially the "Dan" image on the playing card.
