Welcome to the Library! (Via Halloween in Wonderland…)

Paper collection for Halloween in Wonderland

If you read my post on Movember in the Library, you might remember the plain open/closed sign hanging off the moustache in the window. I have never really liked that sign and on a recent trip to my local scrapbooking store I came across a collection of papers called Halloween in Wonderland. This collection of papers is from Graphic 45 and I adore how they have used the original drawings from Alice in Wonderland and added a halloween/ steam punk twist to them.

In the interest of ethical scholarship and acknowledging sources, this is where I found the image of the paper collection.
 
I fell in love with the graphics the minute I saw the papers and it fitted in beautifully with my desire to have a story book/ literature related twist to my new open/closed sign. The new sign is my first ‘off the page’ project in scrapbooking. The lettering was done using my robotic cutter called a craft robo connected to my laptop. The font is called Alice in Wonderland Regular which I found as a free font from www.dafonts.com. The photos below were taken by my wonderful Library assistant who takes the most beautiful photographs.
Hope you like the results:

At last! We thought you'd never arrive!

 

Thankyou, come again...

Playing with Vokis

I know it has been a while since I posted- sorry! I decided to have a little break to recharge my online batteries.

I was asked by another teacher to show her how Voki works as she wanted her languages class to create Voki’s. The process is really easy and here is a Youtube video from Teacher tube to show you how it works

 

and here is my first experimental voki using a Japanese voice
