My 7 Gypsies Junque House

I previously posted a little villa - here's a larger folded book piece I did, using alot of 7 Gypsies Architextures & Architextures Mixed Media paper pad!

I did the same fold as the other one & stopped about halfway through because I love this look! I put some Architextures strips & nuts and bolts haphazardly on the roof & added some rust paste here & there. Added an industrial door & wrench from a Studio Light industrial die cut sheet. Love the Tim Holtz paper doll at the door & sitting on the high voltage! 😲

For the wall, I added more Architextures & a 3D layered high voltage topper from Studio Light and covered it in burlap. On the window, I added some lacquer to the panes so that it looks like reflective glass. I also outlined in black for some depth. I didn't trim the burlap - I wanted it to be rough looking. 

And now for the back! 

I did a 3D layer of the truck & some of the signs. I also added a couple industrial die cuts & used mounting foam. One the side window, the headlights and hood ornament, I added lacquer to make them shiny & reflective. 

These are super simple to make but does take time to fold each page. It's just 2 different types of folds alternating every other page. The decorating is the fun part by far & can be customized for any theme. 

I'm also entering this beauty in the Altered Eclectics October challenge!
