Photo folder - door into Tilda's world

Christmas is the "most wonderful time of the year". Dark evenings are spent on scrapbooking and trying to catch up with fantastic inspiring winter marathon by Fabrika Decoru.

I was actually inspired by my own previous project - upcycled box, and decided to upscale the project. I found an old binder, which I could easily turn in a photo folder. 

For the front cover, I used my favourite material - cornflakes package cardstock. The door sketch is drawn by hand, free style. I cut the elements, glued on another piece of cardstock and put 2 layers of white gesso. Afterwards, I used modelling paste through a stencil to create ornaments on the door. 

Once dry, I painted the door all over with black gesso and then stamped randomly with white gesso again. That created the mixed media effect, I was going for.

In order to create a more realistic look, I added blue and brown water colour paint. This little house is ready for Christmas. Bottom layer of the wreath is handmade. I wrapped a cardstock heart with "hay", covered with white and black gesso. On top, I placed a metal heart with silver beads and added Sizzix greenery die cuts.

In my stash there was this fun paper by Panduro. I thought it is a perfect match, the city landscape, with a mixed media door. It also has the same colour palette, as the embellishments inside.

On the left side there is a small waterfall, consisting of 6 flaps, on the right side there are 6 pockets in a harmonica fold.

Embellishments are from Tilda's collection "Winter memories decore". Papers are from Netto. As six flaps are rather massive, I added an anchor and 2 magnets and the bottom.

The pockets are embellished with Tilda's die cuts as well. Papers are from Søsterene Grene. Mix and match works great!
