Circus Folio

 I have fallen in love with Tim Holtz's folio's!  I'm not a scrapbooker, but these folios are perfect for all those tickets, flyers and what nots one collects on a fun filled trip.
Many of the supplies I used can be found HERE.
To color the folio I took Tim Holtz's distressed paint pealed paint, spun sugar and broken china.  Doctored them up a bit and turned them into sprays.
There are tons of surfaces to cover on this thing which means you have plenty of space to tell your story or show all your trip bits.  
 On the inside flap I used images from the Carnival Scrapbook paper - slideshow and Big Top. My lovely lady is from the Tattooed ladies Collage Sheet. I finished it off with a fun saying stamped directly on and some stenciled stars from the punchinella stencil.
 When you open up the inside flaps you are provided with a ready made cascading paper section to affix just about anything you want to.  
I put a Tiny Brown Kraft Envelope on the inside of each flap to hold goodies. The lovely lady is mounted on a die cut from Tim Holtz Thinlits mini label die set.
 And now for the really fun part.  All the stuff that flips!  The envelope with the word Fly on it is from the Junque Gypsy paper pad set (I used a lot from this set). I just jazzed it up with the stamped word, an image from the Circus Performers #1 Collage Sheet, and some tickets.
 When you flip the pocket over this is the back.  I cut a number of the saying from the Gypsy Moments Poses and reflections paper and peppered them throughout the project. 
 The next layer is another cut out from the Junque paper.  This one is a little book, it opens to show ledger like paper.  On the outside I used a Tattooed lady, flowers, feathers and pearls to decorate it.
 Behind the book I have flying Aerialists, laughing clowns and a black envelope.  
 Flip to the next page and you get a fabulous Women Circus performer and a horse from the Tiny Circus Collage Sheet.
 And for the final page a clown or two with an image surrounded by a Tiny Embossed Gold Dresden Boarder.
And because I couldn't leave the back blank after all that I used an image from the Junque Gypsy paper.  

Thanks so much for looking!  
This piece will be one sale in my Etsy shop when I return from vacation.

What a great folio, Carolyn! I have not seen anything like this before and I'll have to keep my eye out for this. I'd love to see it in person. Sometimes I get ideas for how I would do something as I look it over.
