This was taken in my backyard with my sister as the model. I tried to pick items with certain colors so they would show up in an interesting way when using the negative art selection on my camera.

I was hoping to go for the dream-like aspects of the story Alice in Wonderland, yet placed somewhere familiar to me - as a dream I might have would likely include. We'll see how successful I was!

I'm guessing you were going for Alice in Wonderland in reverse here therefore using an older model instead of someone closer to the image of Alice. Nice touch and the coloring really takes you into another world. At first glance this picture was a bit disturbing to me but upon a second, closer look I see more of what you might have been going for and like the image you projected.

Very dream-like. I'm not sure, but are those croquet balls and a mallet?

Interesting choice for effect. It does give a dreamlike quality to the scene. Try experimenting with cropping: either in front or in back of the woman.
