Welcome to my little book villa!

Something that's been on the back burner for me is book folding. I was originally going to fold all the pages so that it would be completely round like a birdhouse. But then, quite by accident, I stopped folding to do something else....and came back & saw how cute it looked and had a vision of a little villa!

I used the Knot Garden stencil from TCW on the wall with crackle paste, then used oil pastels & a water brush. Printed a door & shutters & added moss. 

Of course, I had to use Tim Holtz paper dolls! 

Don't forget the kid on the roof! 

The back is finished with fluted kraft paper. 

This one is about 6" tall & I'm working on a larger one that's about 10" tall so stay tuned! 

I hope they like it over at the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog - I'm playing along in their mixed media challenge!
