Welcome to my mess! Most of you know that Wednesday is "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday" when people from all over the globe share their workspaces be them messy, tidy or empty!

On my desk this week is my tunnel book.  A lot of people commented on my last WOYWW that they were unsure what a tunnel book was.  Well, basically its  a book where you cut an aperture from each page (usually working large to small) and decorate the pages.  This is my first ever one and its even more difficult as groups of 4 are setting the theme for their book, decorating a couple of pages before posting it to the next person on the list...and so on until it comes back to you.  This means I will have 4 books to decorate but only one with my chosen theme-I think it will be an interesting journey and lots of fun!

My theme is Discworld in honour of Terry Pratchett, one of my favourite modern authors who sadly recently died. In my late teens I fell out of love with reading and my younger brother convinced me to read one of his books.....I fell back in love with reading and as they say, the rest is history.

The book is a kiddies board book for 50p from a charity shop and I peeled and sanded the pictures off before gesso'ing and cutting the pages ready to decorate.

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Psychic Rips of Thousands' where do I start with this one!!!!!

Happy crafting and I hope to see many of you at the WOYWW crop soon 
(I haven't even started my ATC's yet, but I will soon-honest).

  5. The tunnel book sounds very intriguing. It's always a worry when the next round of a project like that arrives. I remember from taking part in Circle Journals a few years ago! Looking forward to seeing you at the crop.
