Alice in Wonderland

There is something about Alice in Wonderland that is frighteningly fascinating to me.  A strange world in a realm with talking rabbits, cunning cats, and the ability to shrink or grow by drinking or eating something.  I have never read the book or watched any of the movies, but the whole story is bizarre and makes me think of my own dreams which are nothing like real life, always strange and somewhat ethereal. I have been working on an Alice in Wonderland altered tag book and have the first page done:
I painted the tag blue, then used some Distress ink and a blending tool to age the edges.  The vintage paper with writing came from a variety pack of ephemera.  I added a piece of cardboard and then an image of Alice that I colored in with colored pencils.  The letter stickers are Jenni Bowlin (I think).  The clip at the top of the page is a flower clip I found in the scrap booking section of Hobby Lobby.
I have more tags done as far as a base background color.  My plan is to not tell the actual story of Alice in Wonderland, but to have a book of images and scenarios of the characters.
