Leather Notebook

Yes Leather ! a friend of mine bought me round some leather offcuts,I was telling her my new Tim Holtz Vagabond machine cuts leather,I couldnt wait to try it out,first i wanted to colour it as the offcuts are a very pale beige,I tried everything to change the colour,it was the metalic Rub on's that worked,it wasnt untill i finished this little notepad that i found the best thing for dyeing leather is Alcohol Inks !! they work wonderfully ! Anyway am quite pleased with this first tryout it will make a nice little Xmas prezzie for her,I am soooo pleased with my Vagabond,thankyou Tim for this great machine,there is no end to what i can do with this !
A bit more leather work for a friend a credit card holder,this one is also dyed with alcohol inks
Happy Christmas ! XXX
