so this is my first tunnel book.  and i am super duper happy with it.  it did go through several stages. one where i tried to paint the birds and branches... and they shriveled and looked very bad.  so it was back to the drawing board and i re did it with colored pencils and paint and some stitching on the circles.

hope you enjoy

That's beautiful *_*. I love how many layers you have, and the birds and circles and just everything.

(Wow, Craftster is introducing me to so many new things. I've never seen a tunnel book either, unless The Very Hungry Caterpillar counts.)

I love that...that is my first one to see too. 

I am in love with all this book making, journals, altered book type of crafts....I need to jump in and do one... Smiley I am always a bit afraid of trying a new craft...


You don't have to get it right the first time, just the last time.

I'm intrigued -- what is this thing of beauty? Can you post some pictures from different angles so we can all see how it's constructed?

How did you make it?

That's beautiful - Selkie

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
