Mixed Media Monday: vintage children




I love the theme at MMM this week I could use vintage images of children all day long... but I decided to go a little bit different. I have just received the new Mabel Lucie Atwell Alice in Wonderland images from The Artistic Stamper. I decided to make a book mark (seemed appropriate) and used bits of pages from an actual copy of the book. I have also used the new large lace background from the artistic stamper I have edged the main image and stamped the lace with one of the new distress colours, tumbled glass.
I love all alice images but I like these ones from the 1920's version of the book as they are just a little bit different.

(Just to clarify, I don't have this book, was just showing a picture of it in casw anyone was not familiar with mabel lucie atwell's Alice drawings)
