as mad as a hatter..............

dontcha just love wearable art???

Why not treat yourself to a cutie patootie TOP HAT to alter complete with clips to attach to your hair:D

And if you aren't inspired by my creation pop on over to the HAPPY DAZE BLOG where Moira, Jo and Carol have also created some incredibly natty head gear :D

I used dip it resin and wire to create my hearts then wired them all together to make a spray, then used wire wrapped around the hat to attach them.

I stamped an Alice image and added it to a metal frame then coated it with glossy accents and stuck it to a bow on the front of my hat.

Next I added feathers, clock hands and a few charms with an Alice theme to the wire work.

Pity we missed ladys day at Aintree yesterday :-( the luck best dressed lady won a fabby holiday to St. Lucia!!!

Oh well, maybe next year LOL :D
heres a few more pics for you to see in more detail :D
