Malice in Wonderland...

I am so overdue for a blog post...my apologies to all!

The cat bite finger incision is healed but my finger is still swollen so pretty much unusable for everyday tasks although I can bend as far as I need to now for grasping a pen or a paintbrush. Good thing for me I'm ambidextrous so I can continue to create.

The kitten is still living on my porch although it is now IN the house more than in the kennel. Hubby still will not say I can have her but she is growing on him & I will be taking her to get fixed next Friday so even if I cannot at least she will not be perpetuating the homeless kitten/feral cat problem.

Oooo...we're having a Malice in Wonderland challenge in AHQU! I'm very excited because this was one I suggested a over a year ago. I have two ideas for this theme in my head. Here's one, this weekend I paid a buck for a forlorn 1987 brinn porcelain angel doll at a yard sale. Her one thumb is chipped off and her hair was all tangled so I removed her wig. It's blond and I want her to have black hair so I'll have to do some research to see if it can be salvaged/colored.




I took a before and after pic...after I "bitched" up her features...LOL and she looks pretty sinister so far so she should make a great dark Alice.






LOL...this will be the second angel that I've given new life to (albeit on the darker side). The other one was Belinda, a witch that used to be a blocky blunt-featured Christmas Angel.



Aw Geez, I'm probably offending someone. I'll stop now ; )

Now that is COOL!!!! Leave it to you to destroy a beautiful doll! Bwahahaha!! Just kidding!
Don't worry I don't think anyone will pick one you as long as it's not causing harm to some poor defenseless animal.
I've got to start thinking about Malice in Wonderland myself.....I'll go find a discarded gourd somewhere!

Josie, try alcohol inks on the hair. I find that they color just about everything.
Can't wait to see your new (m)Alice finished.

Heeheehee. I think she looks a little like Regan in the Exorcist. I sanded her but I can still see the blend of one cheekbone so I guess the dremel will have to come out. I'll have to try the alcohol inks. Hadn't thought of that...thanks!

Oh Josie! I love it! I would love to do that to a Christmas angel. Working retail for 20 years I lost "normal" affection for the holiday. "Retail" Christmas is such hell. I am not anti Christmas...Just all the artifical hype.
I need to stop before "I" offend someone.
I SOoo appreciate your talent!
