Altered Dome

This is created using the stunning Prima spring farmhouse papers and a dome picked up from a local craft shop (which I'm sure will be stocked a papermaze)
The dome comes with a base that the plastic cover fits on to and a removable circular board that you can cover.
I decided to draw around the removable base from grey board cut out and adhered patterned paper so if i wanted i could change the papers and the creation inside if i so wished. 
The main structure is created using some Wendy Vecchi art parts in particular the cake stand, which has been in my stash for a long time
The circular pieces and the tube are covered in the patterned papers

The A playing card is from an old playing card set, the frame again some old stash, the metal plaque is from a Tim Holtz collection with the quote "possibility begins with imagination". Twine frayed adds detail, rolled up flowers, a small glass vile, and the sleeping hare is from a santoro gorjuss stamp set, coloured in with colouring pencils.

The top is a small Tim Holtz movers and shapers pocket watch die. Cut several times in grey board and covered again in the patterned paper. Prima watch face and some clock parts, rolled flowers die cut from the patterned paper. Drink me tag stamped from the same gorjuss stamp set. Small butterflies cut from the patterned paper and a grunge board key hole adhered to the side of the pocket watch

As you can see distress ink was used  and my photo was resized and turned to black and white to fit into the frame. And the hot glue gun came in handy to adhere some of the pieces together.
With the scope of changing it, it could make a great Christmas decoration but at the mment im please with my Alice in Wonderland inspired dome

Here is a side view.

Very cool! I have an old carriage clock which doesn't work...wonder if I should think about 'altering' that!
