Ok, where do I begin…. the beginning is a good place. I am working in the 6×6 square Joggles Tunnel Book. My book contains a visual story of going from the city to the country, where I start out surrounded by buildings and move through to greenery and finally a colorful country home.
I start out my journey from the hustle and bustle of Chicago in my ever so adorable trailer (with wings no less) and head towards the country.
Since I’m starting in the city… I see buildings everywhere! No grass… no greens. My building are made from the Tim Holtz CityScape dies that are watercolored and stamped with the Simon Says Good Reading Background.
I’ve included a spinner element by adding black string to the top and bottom so it will run through the opening. I used the Beautiful Day 6×8 stamp set for my butterfly. I stamped the butterfly twice and since it’s symmetrical, it’s easy to glue to the string back to back. I’ve hidden the string ends behind a flower and the greens.
As I move through the book, I start to see more greens and flowers until I reach my ever so cute home in the country.
This is a really fun project. I took the route of washi tape which was a bit time consuming, but the process was enjoyable and the result is very rewarding. You could also use paints or papers to cover your pages.
I filmed a video where I show clips of the process. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
I’ve also created a PDF so you can see all of the photographs taken of this projects. You can view it by following THIS link.
