Nature Walk + Tunnel Tag Book

Hey friends :) Today I want to share a bit of a sneak peek with you....

... Let me start off by saying I GOT TO USE NATURE WALK BABY!!! I made myself sit down. pull out scissors. and CUT THE friggin' paper! It really was difficult at first, but I'm so glad I did. I used 3 of the 6 sheets of paper, die cut elements, and tags on this book. 

Book you ask? Oh yes.. my little sneak peek. You'll see that this book is a rather unique little beauty... something BRAND NEW coming to UmWowStudio during our #uwsbigbash which will be happening the week after next! We may or may not be bringing ////chipboard mini books//// of a sorts to store! YES! This one happens to be a Tag Tunnel Book. Tags + Tunnels + #Uwschip = AWESOME. 

Anyways... feast your eyes upon said beauty :

 This book uses LOADS of goodness.

The front page in any tunnel book has to be the widest opening.. mine is donned with Songbird, a butterfly from the Tags Die-cut sheet, and Winged Things title from the Words sheet. I also used a Michaels flower, cheesecloth, Miracle Tape from Viva Las VegaStamps!, a piece from the Nature Walk Floral Collection by UmWowStudio, May Arts Ribbons Burlap Twine and some other little sneaky peeky bunting pieces from the upcoming new release.

The second page of my album features Gray Day on its base, A bee cut from one of the Tag Die-cuts, thread, Prima Engraver Brads, Gesso, Corduroy Distress Ink, and more Burlap Twine by May Arts paired with the 1.5 inch Grosgrain with Stripes. There's also a little splattering of Tattered Angels Charcoal.

This page is a little sparse, but I really like it that way. It's made of Cloudy, and has some Tattered Angels Charcoal mist on it, which has also been sprayed onto an UmWowStudio Circle Confetti Mask and stamped down. The memo tag is from the Die-cuts sheet, there's a Michaels flower attached to some beautiful Silky Crush Ribbon by May Arts and my Dymo Label Maker had to make an appearance. :)

This final page is probably my favorite... though I really adore them all. It's also made from Cloudy. I stamped the Viva Las VegaStamps! French Writing in the back with a Memento Gray Flannel pad. Cheesecloth, a paper clip and a frame make an appearance. As well as another piece from that sneaky peeky bunting from UmWowStudio. The Speech Bubble is from the Die-cuts from Nature Walk.

And this little vintage beauty of a Cameo is actually an authentic vintage cameo I molded in Amazing Mold Putty. It's been cast in Amazing Casting Resin and brushed with Bronze Metallic Powder. All available from Amazing Crafting Products. I distressed it with Distress Paint in black soot, and Gesso by Golden.

What do you think of my little book? And all my favorite companies squeezed into such a tiny vessel. ♥
