NOTEBOOK- from Beth and Karla`s workshop

Back home again, to a wonderfull september weather,
I could not resist making  Beth`s notebook, from the
Gothic tales .

I would have used the images given in the workshop, but then I discovered that JAN  from
Digital Antiques just offered a wonderfull dige sheet with Gothic Arches.
I bought it straight away, and used some of the images, for a
quick and easy , mini noteboog.

The little bird on the right is a stamp!

But the rest is from the digi sheet-in wonderfull brownish tones.
My book is for now with 5 pages-I used old hanging maps ,from some office, as background,
and have more or less note- place on the pages.
This is the backside of the book.

I will try to find time for making the Tote bag, too, but ----I must also sew to my real shop,here.
I hope all of you are having great september dayes, and wishes you
a beautifull day.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

This is a lovely project. All the lace and tulle make it so soft and touchable. xox Corrine

This is gorgeous, Dorthe. I thought the same thing when I saw Jan's new images - that they'd be perfect for the class.
I haven't finished the notebook yet because I jumped right into the tote on burlap. I bought more burlap yesterday to make more to sell.
Hugs, DIane

Dein notebook sieht super schön aus, liebe Dorthe! Die images sind sehr hübsch und die Kombination mit den Spitzen ist ganz prima! Vielleicht findest Du ja noch Zeit für die Einkaufstasche.
Viele, liebe Grüße, kys og knus :-),

Thank you for your sweet encouragement about my notebooks too!

I love how you made this project your very own. The images from Jann are beautiful. I'll have to go peak. I can't believe how much work you get done everyday my friend. I feel like such a slug lately. Can't seem to get out of my creative funk. I may give this notebook a go tho, you inspired me! Lisa

Oh what great images and I love how you used the fabric to create an eerie ghostly feel. Such inspiration!
