Alice in Wonderland Tunnel Book - New Image Set - Video Tutorial

This is the second in a series of tunnel book video tutorials with this one focusing on Alice in Wonderland.  For this project, I created a large new digital image set titled "Strange People" which includes images from my other Strange People collage sheets plus a ton more.  You can see some of them framed as pictures on the wall below, I thought they fit right in with the story's strange and whimsical characters.
If you aren’t familiar with tunnel books, they are made by connecting a series of pages with the first page having the largest hole and each subsequent page having a smaller hole than the one before, giving the book a tunnel effect.   Adding to the tunnel effect are the images on each page that slightly protrude into the openings.  The way I designed this book, the tunnel effect works no matter which direction you look (from the front to the back of from the back to the front). 
I constructed the book using a 6x6 ArchTunnel Book that contains 6 pages which gave me lots of surfaces to embellish.
This is an image-intensive project wherein I used lots of collage sheets and digital image sets.
My approach was to illustrate several of my favorite Alice in Wonderland scenes although I couldn’t resist adding Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum and Humpty Dumpty from Through the Looking Glass.
In the video tutorial, I’ll walk you through how I assembled the book and how to make the mini Alice book on the cover.

This set is packed with all kinds of strange anthropomorphic people included are; 34 animal characters, 20 skeleton characters, 20 vegetable, and fruit people and 8 moon men for a total of 82 images.  You can find some of these images on the Strange People, Strange People #2 and Halloween Carnival collage sheets.  To purchase this image set, click on the image below.
