I have joined a tunnel book project as I thought it was a new crafty experience and I wanted to try my hand at it. I have actually got two of them on the go one at home and one I sent out for my entry. It passes around other people and will return home with their contributions and build up the layers.
I gessoed and textured pasted the cover as I was going for a distressed luggage look to match my Terry Pratchett theme. I used Adirondack sprays in expresso and butterscotch as well as a gold Heidi Swapp one on the top.
I used a child's board book and it was a bit of a pain to get the holes cut out and line them up. I decided to embrace the wonkiness in the end as it was frustrating me and I also thought it fitted the off kilter look of the book. I also had to sand the edges and I'm still not totally happy with the finish but I think it's a learning curve which is the whole point of the project.
My page is based on a quote from "The Wee Free Men" by Terry Pratchett. I love the Tiffany Aching set of books and this quote always makes me laugh. It fitted my Stampotique stamp I wanted to use as well. I positioned her so you can see her peeking out the page which is part of the books look with the different layers building up.
I still have some things I want to add to the cover and my page but I'm going to do them when it returns so the postage won't be too high as it journeys around. TFLx.
