I was inspired by a lovely white on white piece that a woman in my paper cutting class started this week. This is a tunnel book. Each panel is attached to the side accordion folds with tabs that stick out. I wanted to experiment with cutting the swoopy garlands so that was my starting point.
The bird on a perch seemed like the perfect thing to sit underneath the garlands. I added the bunting panel to add some interest to the top. The front and back were painted with a soft petal pink watercolor wash and the garlands on the back layer were just dotted on with a slightly opaque mix of the same pink and a grey.
I am so happy with this book. A tiny LED candle set in the back creates a wonderful mood within the piece and pulls it all together.
