It's a clipboard re-purposed......

Hello and Happy Wednesday sweet blogging friends. I have a fun project to share with you all today. My neighbor was throwing out some stuff and she asked me if I wanted any of it. Well, the collector that I am, I just had to go through her box and pick a few things. :D

Among the things I pulled out were a few frames, some glass containers and 3 very well loved clip boards. You know those Kraft looking, really boring ones. I finally took one of those clip boards and jazzed it up a little. Check it out








Recipe:

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU Buckaroo Blue., and a digi paper image I had for a while

Stamps: ODBD Quote Collection 3

Inks: VersaFine Onyx Black Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye

Accessories: Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, Mulberry roses, metal key (from Michael's) resin cherub, seam binding, handmade stick pin, lace, handmade lace flower, resin frame (Michael's) pearl string, metal crown, rhinestone studded butterfly, rhinestone embellishments( earrings I re-purposed ;D) ribbon flower, acrylic wheat spray, Gesso and acrylic paint






So, what do you think? Isn't it  amazing what you can do with old stuff? Go on digging for some not so pretty things and turn them into a beautiful piece of art.

Well, this is it for me for this morning, gotta run some errands.

Thanks so very much for stopping by. I truly appreciate you leaving me sweet comments.

Hugs and blessings,

I'd take one back and show her it. I bet her jaw will be on the ground to see what happened to her old clip boards. Beautiful job.
