Another notepad from me today! I used to Love it when my notepad ran out...it was an excuse to go out and buy a really nice notepad...I always have had a thing for stationary!!!... and believe me I could spend a fortune on stationary!......now I love it more because I get to make myself a notepad.......I love this design from "Loralie"......I think because I love sewing, and I do quite like quirky images...so this one is just so me!!
I have added the stripes and the glasses to the design...then coloured with my copics - I was having a few issues...I stamped it on some scrap card, unfortunately the quality was not brill so It did bleed quite a lot and I had to patch up the rough areas with a white gel pen, so please don't look to closely......I have put glossy accents over the glasses..and have added some glitter to the image with my "marvy - glitter pen"
The reels of thread, scissors and pin cushion are also "Loralie" stamps...which I have used to make little embellies... the tape measure is just scrap paper that I have drawn lines on and coloured, and then stitched. Finally I added a few buttons....also I have added a little scissor shape charm to the rings....I love how it turned out however I am not sure how practical it will be and how many of those embellies I will loose with this book going in and out my bag all the time...LOL!!!
