down the rabbit hole

is the name of "d's" dream house book. and so in keeping with that theme here is an extra page for her i made. when i went to Inspired i took a class with cheryl darrow of Tenseconds Studio. She is hilarious and a fantastic teacher. In her class she taught us how to use metal and rubbing plates. that is what the secret garden gate door is made of. "d" shared that her grandmother lucy used to let her help in making candies and that she was an avid gardener. down the rabbit hole reminds you of alice in wonderland. my room is called "lucy's secret garden room". i used a technique learned in paulette insall's class to make my rabbit and fabric folding to make the dogwood flower petals. I wrote the saying "i am bc she was" to honor who "d" has become in life bc of the investment her granny made in her as a child. go make a childhood dream come true.

This is great Dove. How was this to sew on? I've been wanting to try it, just haven't done it yet.
