    Really need help with those jaggy edges on the writing pad part. Tried with mask blurring and adjusting levels but still not satisfied with the result. Comments, feedback and tips are highly appreciated.

    @kajdax tried 45 degrees but doesn't look right :D
    but seriously, I've tried several angles, it doesn't help. The weird thing is, that pencil edges looks so much better than the writing pads and the paper. I'm clueless.

    @noptar in fact, it's much worse if I remove the outline :(
    I use stroke with 35% opacity to reduce those jaggy edges.
    But maybe Kajdax is right, there must be an angle where the edges are evenly antialiased or at least less jaggy.

    blur (5-10) the mask then use levels or brightness-contrast to adjust it back to sharp mode. i hope i make sense :)

    Really good work. You did it with Photoshop? I bet you've created and then rotated.
