New Challenge at The Altered Alice -- DOORS

"There was not a moment to be lost: away went Alice like the wind, and was just in time to hear it say, as it turned a corner, `Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!' She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen: she found herself in a long, low hall, which was lit up by a row of lamps hanging from the roof.

There were doors all round the hall, but they were all locked; and when Alice had been all the way down one side and up the other, trying every door, she walked sadly down the middle, wondering how she was ever to get out again."

-- Chapter 1, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
The Challenge at The Altered Alice is to use a door or doors, and preferably for the door or doors to open and close so we can see what lays beyond! While it is not required that your project include Alice in Wonderland, we do encourage it. If your project does feature Wonderland you will get two chances in the prize drawing instead of one!
I am thrilled to announce that The Octopode Factory, the slightly mad brainchild of 17 year old artist Lily Chilvers, is our March sponsor! We are celebrating because Lily has moved into the world of rubber! That's right - RUBBER STAMPS! The Octopode Factory will have both digital stamps AND rubber stamps on some of her most popular images, which includes most of her AMAZING Alice in Wonderland artwork!. Read about the new range of Octopode Factory rubber stamps and how to order. Lily started with her quirky digital images, and she has gifted the design team members with some of her wonderful Wonderland digital sets. Most of the digital images we will be using are those that are now available in rubber,
One lucky winner will win a $30 gift certificate for digital images from The Octopode Factory's Etsy store! Enter by Friday, March 25 at 8 p.m. Eastern time (GMT -5:00) and a winner will be announced on Sunday, March 27. Show us your DOORS!
Check out The Altered Alice to see how the first group of Design Team members interpret this challenge theme. Start thinking about what doors YOU will take us through as you design your own challenge projects! Enter them on this post before 8 p.m. Eastern time (GMT -5:00) on Friday, March 25 and we will announce the winner on Sunday, March 27. In the meantime the design team will be back each Sunday with weekly Wonderland inspiration! Join in the fun and create a piece of art. I'll be sharing my art next Sunday. I'm looking forward to see what you create.
