Altered Manila folder

I belong to a lovely artsy group here and last night we took old folders and added some style!
Mine has some of my faux writing/scribble, some paint, cut up paper and a flower.
On top I drew a little girl inspired by Kelly Roberts. Not as whimsical as hers though.
Sides have gaffer tape to make a pocket.
I used real make-up on her face and felt tip pens for the painting. Outlined with charcoal pencil to make her 'pop'.

Little word from the wise, after I get lots of queries.
Yes you may link my artwork to your page if you make the tutorial or project.
Giving a little credit for the idea is always nice and appreciated.

Such a beautiful piece of art, and I think it does have a lovely whimsical quality about it.
