Mixed Media Mayhem - Beware the White Rabbit

When I was teaching in Xian, China, (#1 High School), I came across the bagged candy, White Rabbits, in the local supermarket.  Creamy, chewy, sweet, these taffy-like candies became my go-to treat.  When I came home, I was able to satisfy my craving finding them in import stores... until the Great Melamine Scandal.  No more to be found...then last week shopping in World Marketplace, I was happily reunited with these tiny joys.

To make this page, I inked the background with several colors of Ranger Inks using a cosmetic sponge and added texture with TCW stencils and some old rubber stamps of concentric circles.  I drew the rabbit trying to make him scary, not cute, and used fiber paste to give him fluff.  The text is stamped on deli paper.  When I glued the text down I forgot that the gel medium would reactivate the ink...


  1. Great journal spread Linda! now I want to try the white rabbit chewies!!

  2. The rabbit is looking cool . The fiber paste does an amazing job.
