You know I"m a lucky Guest Designer for
this month, right?
Well, I am and I am so lucky to had the chance to play with this gorgeous
VINTAGE GENTLEMAN KIT
before the rest of you!!! lol
It's OK, it's available in Ali's shop now.
You can find it here
You'll love it like I do, it's full of all sorts of wonderful vintage ephemera,
three colours of lovely vintage seam binding,
a Cabinet Card and lot of other treasures. Many of them!
Here is my second creation for the month:
It's a journal.
Perhaps I shall write in it about all the men I've loved.
Maybe not enough room...
I made sonme book jewelry, and used a little bit of the vintage pages to create some beads.
Look at the vintage handwriting! I've also used a copule of Tim Holtz and Basic Grey papers.
You have to SEE this! Smith's COMPUTER!!
How many gigs do you suppose it has? lol
And finally, just waiting to be filled:
The ties along the front and back, for closing the book are made of the gorgeous Linen fabric ribbon which arrived in the kit and some of that mahvellous seam binding,
The brown bow at the top (also of seam binding) is also quite wonderful, don't you think?
I do hope you'll check out this and Ali's other amazing vintage kits in
AND, join in the challenge that is running over there at Vintage Page Designs
AS WE SPEAK!
And you will definitely want to be a part of that.
Great journal, Electra! I love the book jewellry! The seam binding and ribbon add so much.ReplyDelete
Oh Electra, what a beautiful piece and a beautful idea to write about all of the men you have loved. I would like to be a fly on the wall when you start writing in it. Can you write in a vintage style ... that would make it even more interesting, just sayin'. It is a good morning for me when I can come over and peruse your blog. Thank you again ...ReplyDelete

WONDERFUL art work! Bravo on being a guest designer!!ReplyDelete
Love it wonderful vintage cabinet card!ReplyDelete
Yes, it's a wonderful kit. I've had it in and out of my shopping cart several times, trying not to spend even more money, but I think you might just have done away with my last bit of willpower. This is totally gorgeous, or as we say in the UK, yes, mahvellous!ReplyDelete
