Alice In Wonderland - The Mad Hatter

Okay, so we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Singapore, but what can you do when you have such lovely papers as Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection? Well, I happen to have this promotional card of Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, so I thought, why not? Quite appropriate, don't you think? Besides, the picture and colours match so wonderfully together!

I did quite a bit of distressing and inking of the papers, to give them a really "old" and vintage look, and then added the Blossom Branch from Prima, which I thought gave the layout a bit of a "haunted" feel.

I also applied some distress embossing powder to the photo corners to give them a faded, almost rusted look.

I then placed some laces peeking out from behind the distressed papers to soften the overall look a little.

This was a really fun layout to do! Thanks so much for dropping by, and Happy Halloween! :)
