Just been messing – started off dark, then went much lighter because I was making a card, then I started adding more and more and it got dark again – oops – and it became a journal page…!

Anyway, can you tell me how mad a hatter is? 

And who decides whether a hatter is mad or not?

Do hatters still exist?

Are hatters hes or shes?

And, in the great scheme of things…

Do hatters really matter?????

JP how mad is a hatter anyway

PS The colours were supposed to NOT match… ie clash - just in case they horrify you….

ADDENDUM

Deb says hatters were ‘mad’ because of the mercury used to process the felt they used, which they inevitably breathed in, while working – thanks for that, Deb!

Enjoy your day!

I think the colours are fab. Sorry I got you mixed up with the pink. Could have sworn you weren't a fan, lol. As for hatters. Well I can think of a few people that fit the description and you know them too, lol. Love the page by the way, x

Colours look fine to me too :) All looks vibrant and juicy :) Love that it transmorphed as you were applying the colours dark to light and back again. You're as inspirational as always. Pxx

looks like the journal page (which wasn't supposed to be) has come together really well Cath. all those layers have really added depth.

Deborah said...

Love the journal page! Wasn't it the mercury that used to be used in felt hat making that made hatters mad (dementia)?

Karen said...

The colours work well together for me. Thought it interesting how the project developed from a card to a journal page too. Elizabeth

Love how it started off as one thing and did a complete about turn into something else - fabulous

And from my point of view, I don't think it matters how mad a hatter is, if indeed they are mad!!!

I'm loving the intentional clash and all that yummy stamping. And thanks for the education on hatters... I surely never knew why they were mad!
