Chapter 26: Sizin' up a sketch...

 
 
CHAPTER 26: Sizin' up a Sketch...


"The Caterpillar was the first to speak. 

`What size do you want to be?' it asked. 

`Oh, I'm not particular as to size,' Alice hastily replied; `only one doesn't like changing so often, you know.' 

`I DON'T know,' said the Caterpillar. 

Alice said nothing: she had never been so much contradicted in her life before, and she felt that she was losing her temper. 

`Are you content now?' said the Caterpillar. 

`Well, I should like to be a LITTLE larger, sir, if you wouldn't mind,' said Alice: `three inches is such a wretched height to be.' 

`It is a very good height indeed!' said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high). 

`But I'm not used to it!' pleaded poor Alice in a piteous tone. And she thought of herself, `I wish the creatures wouldn't be so easily offended!' 

`You'll get used to it in time,' said the Caterpillar; and it put the hookah into its mouth and began smoking again..."


Hello!  How is everyone here in Wonderland today?

We are sizing up a GREAT sketch by JEN and the main panel just HAPPENS to be THREE. INCHES. TALL.  :)  Now, of course you don't have to stick to this if your image won't fit, but we didn't want to anger Mr. Caterpillar by saying that Three inches wasn't a respectable height, so here's the sketch:
 

And here are some samples by our AWESOMELY Twisted team.
 
Here is what I created, I wanted to use this image but then after I was working on it realize that it was a little out of proportion to the sketch itself.  I used the Wonderland Collage plate from Artistic Outpost as well as the challenge over at Embellish Magazine which was Quirky, Cutesy, Clean with a color challenge. 

Hope you will join us over at Oh, Alice, we'd love to see what you create using Jen's sketch!
