Artwork & Blogpost by Natalie Parish, Bag End Studio, QLD
It’s no secret how much I love Alice in Wonderland Themes. So, I was very excited to receive this month’s Rabbit Design Kit so I could build upon by Wonderland Artwork Collection. (see blog ‘We are All Mad Here - The Red Queen & Alice Art Dolls). Therefore, I wanted to find some design elements that would work in with this collection. Secondly, I wanted to tie in the idea of falling down the rabbit hole (something I symbolically do daily). This led to rearranging the MDF pieces to simulate the White Rabbit falling.
However, I couldn’t think of what to do with all the extra pieces – especially the scroll. Finally, I hit upon the idea that when I am organized and ticking off errands, I am less likely to procrastinate. I make lists and scroll through them all the time and still end up doing tasks in a furious hurry, much like when we first meet Lewis Carrol’s White Rabbit I realized. That led to the idea of attaching and decorating an old pinboard to my artwork to pin up my to do lists or bills in a vain attempt to not always be late. Alas, due to time constraints I did not include the pinboard in these instructions but intend to do so at a later date (I have another rabbit hole to visit first).
Step 1: Design Layout
Step 2: Make Stone Art
Step 5. Make the Bunny Tail
Step 7. Sculpt Rabbit Face
Step 11. Embellish with Powercolour & Colourtrix
Step 12. Attach Chain, Fob Watch and Umbrella and hanging hooks.
Congratulations You Have Finished!
I hope you had fun falling down this Rabbit Hole with me
I look forward to lighting the way in May
