"Through the Rabbit-Hole" Tunnel Book in color







I just finished up this color version of the Alice inspired Tunnel Book "Through the Rabbit-Hole". I'm really not sure if I like this one or the other one in black and white best. As a result workshops will offer a choice of imagery in either black and white or in the more vintage colors.

I know many are here looking at your awesome journal pages, but since I'm not much of a journaler, I am most interested in the mechanics of this book. You did an AMAZING job of matching fronts and backs of images, so that the one on the back of each page is in perfect sync with the one on the front that peeps into the hole. This element alone must have taken forever. Once again, I am in total awe of your art!

Ingrid, you never fail to just blow me away with your unbelievable art. Every journal you share, every page you allow me to peek into, is beyond inspirational. When I grow up, I want to be just like you! *grin*
Peace & Love,

I like the colored one better. It really pops and draws my eye down the 'tunnel'. It is truly inspired to do the Alice story as a tunnel book. Kind of a smack your head and say 'why didn't I think of that!' idea. Great work Ingrid! Should make for a fun class.

Well, Kiara, that's not a question that can easily be answered in a blog post. How it is made is a rather complicated process and one better explained and shown by example in a class room situation. As far as the materials used.... the covers are made of wood,the pages are made of boxboard, lots of imagery,paint and markers etc.

Carol Q said...

fabulous book! - not planning a class in the UK are you??? LOL

Kelinci said...

very creative & attractive.

Shannon said...

This Rabbit Hole journal is off the charts amazing. That had to have been so much fun to work on? I was so interested in the journal I almost fell into the rabbit hole myself.

Vina said...

Really attractive & artistics.

Jayce said...

I love this and would like to take the workshop--tell me when and where and how much and I will definitely try to attend! this is part of what I am looking for to enhance my own work--I really would like to begin to make my own paper for my projects--but am having a hard time finding the type of workshop/class in my area to do this.

Sandra E. said...

The comment attributed to Jayce is from me--I did not know my daughter had signed in and was using my computer (since she has her own....)My name is Sandra

Ingrid Dijkers said...

Sandra, I would be happy to send you a list of where and when this workshop is available, but I have no way of contacting you as I an email address or a return link has not been provided.

Sue Rostron said...

Wow, this is wonderful. Thank you for sharing your creativity. Glad I stumbled across this on Pinterest. Will follow your blog now!

Sara McGinlay said...

Hello Ingird. I'm absolutely blown away by your art! I'm currently studying your work as part of my 'mixed media' art GCSE coursework and wondered what materials you use for the base of each page? I wasn't entirely sure if it was possibly wood or cardboard. Thanks, Sara :)
