Dil ke kalam se

Hi everyone,
We are at the ending point of this year.
The start of every year takes you a step closer to the attainment of your dreams. Hope this year is the breakthrough one and your dreams finally turn into reality.
Every New Year gives you the perfect chance to start something new and fresh. A fantasy noted down with a date turns into an objective.

So this New Year, to take fantasies travel the distance to their goal and make them a reality, I have created an altered project of a  notebook into vintage style notebook to pen down new hopes, new aspirations and new spirits etc, ,etc...So goes the title " dil ke kalam se" meaning "penned down from the heart". And this is my project where I am writing out all details about how I made this project.

I wanted the cover page to be simple yet effective that goes with the title. So, the cover page and the heart has been made by  burning the borders of the same. After writing the title, I embellished the heart with twine and red netted cloth bow and some glitter.

I made this notebook of 156 pages..To make the pages look old, I dipped each  the paper in tea stained water, then dried it on a cloth to soak the excess water. Finally I ironed them till dry. Later, I piled them up and punched them into a notebook with black rope.

This is a special notebook to my friend who is fond of pending down the feelings in poetic form.

I hope , my friend enjoys this new book on this new year and fill the pages with new
thoughts in poetic form.

May this New Year brings you a peace filled life, warmth and togetherness in your family and much prosperity! Merry Christmas and  Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your valuable comments. Hope to see you again.
