Pocket Notebooks

In March I went to a workshop at the Cubby Hole ran by Nigel - I had a fab time playing with kitchen towel and inks.  The most important thing was that I was in the company of friends and finally finally mastered how to make signatures (I know it's easy - but someone like me who as my mum says is "gaggy-handed" it's not) - so thank you Nigel.  Here are the results:-

At home I added the Marianne Design Creatables-die-ballerina LR0165/ which I did using silver mirri card which I embossed and aged with black Stazon along with some metal flowers.  

To this one I added the hand drawn heart which I painted with gold paint and overstamped with a Crafty Individuals stamp and added a thread from a piece of cord and a metal flower. I love the torn uneven pages. These were lightly spritzed and stamped.

I would like to enter these pocket notebooks into the following challenges:-

These books are brilliant and now you've mastered stitching signatures you are well away. I presume the kitchen towels were used for the covers.

These are lovely Suzanne - particularly the heart - did you say you drew it by hand - it's gorgeous. - Jacqueline xx
