Tribute to The Mad Hatter: Gingersnap Ribbon Challenge and The Three Muses

If anyone has seen the wonderful image of Jonny Depp dressed as the Mad Hatter for a new movie yet to come out, may recognize where my inspiration came from. I have not gone out to actually copy his hat but to take inspiration from it.
I am a complete fan of Jonny Depp. Although I think he is a great actor and I really enjoy his skill I also think he is the most handsome man since Paul Newman, both shared the most glourious bone structure. However Paul Newman's eyes would probably get my vote. 
Here is the image I am inspired by. It is the most wonderful photograph. I have it as my screen saver at the moment.

Is it a cheat to use one item for two challenges? I have never really worked this out? Anyway this morning I saw The Three Muses challenge and I just had to add it. I was looking for a logo to add to my side panel but could not find one!

Paul Newman doesn't get a look in I'm afraid, it's Johnny Depp every time.

Love the inspiration you've taken to create this fantastic hat. Bravo.

Wonderful collage, Laura - your artwork is an original interpretation of Johnny Depp's hat. I love all those small things you have added to your work. Great job!

Fabulous collage, Laura, it is OK to use one piece for 2 different challenges, I've even seen one for 4 challenges!!!

Johnny Depp is all mine btw, but your hat is awesome!

Melisa said...

Oh, I love your hat! I agree that Depp is both talented and handsome, though maybe not so much in the inspiration photo you posted, LOL. I hadn't seen that and now I'm curious about the new movie!

Ozstuff said...

I love your hat - so jaunty and full of little suprises if one takes the time to enlarge and study it! I love the fact that you were inspired by Johnny Depp's new look and so glad you included the "original" along with your own creation. Your work is so interesting, creative and whimsical. Fantastic.

Lori Saul said...

What a wonderful creative hat and I agree the inspiration is fantastic! Beautiful work!

Faye said...

Wonderful and fun, Laura. I don't think anyone minds that an entry is eligible for more than one challenge. At least, that was my understanding. You did a great job on this and it deserves to be seen by artists of several challenges.

Svenja said...

Great hat - and so much storage space!

Rhonda said...

Fabulous hat! Isn't Johnny Depp an incredible character actor? He can become the strangest personalities. Very cool interpretation. Cheers!

"MOI" Freubel said...
