Happy Friday everyone! I am working full tilt on finishing The Alice in Wonderland Dresser. This weeks theme at TOFF is “Mushrooms”. I have finished the Final drawer featuring the Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland in all his Mushroom loving glory. I will be back in a few s with all of the details and some Full shots of the completed front of the Dresser. Please enjoy these pictures for now and check back with me later for the big reveal. Be sure to check out the other inspiring creations by The Octopode Factory Friday DT and join in on some fungi fun!
Smoke rings made from cotton sprayed with perfect pearls and alcohol inks. Sealed with Krylon Pearl Spray paint.
Alice in Wonderland Caterpillar with Hookah image and Mushrooms are colored with Copic Markers, sealed, and mounted on Chip board with Mod Podge. All images available at The Octopode Factory.
This is the “A is for Alice” image from The Octopode Factory. Seed beads were adhered with Glossy Accents to the “A” in her hair. Glossy accents were also added to the eyes of Alice and the Caterpillar. Along the bottom of the drawer is printed text using the “Beyond Wonderland” Font (Click to download for free). Within the text is the famous poem the Caterpillar asks Alice to Recite….
How doth the little crocodile Improve his shining tail, And pour the waters of the Nile On every golden scale! How cheerfully he seems to grin, How neatly spreads his claws, And welcomes little fishes in, With gently smiling jaws!
I created a Mushroom Drawer pull with stacked buttons and a glass mushroom bead I found at Hemp Creations (Designs by Holly Webb)

The Leaves were cut from Fabric and Core’dinations card stock using several Sizzix leaf dies. The doodle detailing was created using Copic Markers and a Marvy Paint pen. The entire design of the Alice in Wonderland Caterpillar drawer was inspired by this clip from the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland….
