My First Vintage Project

I am back again with another project. Its a notepad again.......:). i actually am having fun making them so you guys are gonna see them a lot in the up coming days. And i need to post this soon because its my mom's birthday today so there is a lot to do :).

This project is for the DT assignment at Gingerloft challenges. This week the theme is vintage. The pretty image used is provided by the very generous Tami.

I have never done anything vintage before so its my very first take. I hope it looks vintage :). The image is colored with water color pencils. The flowers used at the top of the tag are from my brand new stash :). Got them in many colors :).

The backing papers, ribbons, pearls, flowers and all the gems are from my stash as well. The butterflies are an internet download. The lavender flower though is totally handmade.

Inside view of my project. decorated according to the same there. Added a butterfly and bow inside too, to make it look fancy.

The closer view of one of backside of the top cover. i have layered it to increase its strength, plus i also love layers :).

A close up of the inside holding the decorated notepad with a pen holder.

A final shot of the completed project to show clearly. No templates used to make this. All measurements are mine :). I hope u can see a pin attached to the bow. Its not clearly showing in the pic though.
