Announcing my 10th Annual Blog Swap: All Things Alice!

You may have noticed that Lewis Carroll´s “Alice in Wonderland” celebrated its 150 years anniversary last year (it was written in 1865, and its sequel is from 1871).
This fact alone would be a good reason to have an Alice themed swap this year, but I´ve also read that Tim Burton´s Alice film gets a sequel, too, that starts in May. Unfortunately, Tim Burton isn´t the director for “Through the Looking Glass”, but the teaser for the film looks great nevertheless, and I´m really forward to watch it!

In the meantime, let´s make loads of Alice themed ATCs!
You don´t have to stick to the original story or illustrations  – you can go your own way, let her live in Zettiland, or let her go on vacation, or or or … Just make sure that Alice´s original world is your inspiration, and think of The Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, a Tea Party, Nonsense Rhymes, big versus small, flamingos, playing cards, chess, Humpty Dumpty, etc.

And here are the rules:

All techniques are allowed, such as collage, stamping, drawing, painting, sewing, digital (if you work digitally, please add at least one tactile element!).

Please sign up via personal email (just click on the email me link in the sidebar) and let me know your snail mail address. There´s no sign-up date.

Then send 3 ATCs to my address (that I´ll send you when I answer your email) so that they´re in my hands before April 30, 2016.

As always, you´ll find weekly updates on my blog with links to all participants´ ATCs.
So when you´ve finished your ATCs, please send me an email with the link to the place where you´ve posted them online, and I´ll add that link to the next update so that everyone can go to your blog or other website to have a look at your artwork.
We´ll also have a Pinterest Board for the swap where I´ll pin your cards and everyone can have a look at what the others made for the swap, leave comments, etc.
There´s another Pinterest Board here where I´ve pinned previous Alice themed stuff just for your inspiration.

I´ll send out invitations to all previous blog swap participants, but this swap is open to all my visitors. Have fun!
