Vintage Book

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm showing you something I made earlier this week, its took me until now to blog it lol.
Now when I started to make this I had this whole different picture in my head...........believe the picture was lush!! However it didnt turn out the way I had imagined but I will show you anyway & I will try again on my next one......as I do love the look of them.
Live & Love Crafts have a lush fabby challenge on at the mo & its an inspirational pic which I loved as soon as I saw it..........so I've gone for the colours, the vintagey feel & the books ;0) 
As this is a book............. sorry about this pic it was hard to photo.

Its a book that opens though.............I used this paper on the side as I thought the writing on the paper was perfect for it.

It opens up & I can store all my gorgeous Pion images in there..................its perfect for them.
The gorgeous image is Pion & I distressed it first then tripple embossed it with UTEE, cracked it & added walnut distress ink to give it a old look to it. Isn't she sooooo sweeti, think this is my fave Pion image.


Sorry about the light showing at the top, hubster fitted lights on my 3 units to light them up.
This is it in situ on my dresser in my craft room. The book next to it my hubster brought me about 5 years ago, he saw it in a shop that does handmade things & knew I would like it. I wasn't into crafting or anything like that then lol.

Materials used are as follows............
Flowers are from WOC.
Regency Embossing folder that came with the Ebosser.
Tassle I made myself & the button, chain & key bundle charm are from my stash.

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by, I will make another & hopefully will be better...........lol
Squishy hugs to all mmwah

Hi Vicky

This is my second attempt at this comment, I lost the first one, not sure what happened there. I am just back from my week's holiday and playing catch up. Just love all your lovely recent creations and am so chuffed to see you have got your sewing machine out and into action. Do you remember us talking about it some time ago? Judy x
