Vintage Waterfall Folio

Hello friends! I hope you are well. Today I would like to share a waterfall folio that I have created using papers from Meg's Garden. The collection I have used is called the Forgotten Meadows. It has muted tones, beautiful flowers and oodles of vintage charm.
To frame my main focal image I altered a chipboard frame. I placed it in an embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. I used Distressed stain walnut stain, then applied Versamark embossing ink, then sprinkled Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze Embossing powder and embossed the frame to create this aged vintage look. Once dry, I applied some more of the distress stain to tone it down.

Here is the inside of of the folio. There is a side pocket for tags and another for mementoes and on the right you can see the waterfall mechanism.

I used some left over papers as well as some of the of the ephemera from the cut and create sheet that is supplied in the collection.

I have a short video that I have made where you can see me going through my vintage waterfall folio.

I hope that'll have a go in creating one. Here is the link to a tutorial which I followed to create it.
