Yeah it's time for another challenge over at Anything but a Card!
This two weeks it's all about TEXTURE!
I thought about doing a card with fabric and wires and stuff... but then I remembered
NO CARDS ha ha ha!!!!
So I altered yet another item (I'm on an altering kick apparently!)
This time I did a clip board......
Wanna see the before clipboard??? Ok, here it is
Pretty grungy huh?? I picked this beaut up at the Goodwill on half price Saturday for 50 cents
I know it's hard to believe such a beautiful and pristine piece could go for literally pennies!
Ha ha ha
I wanted something fun that I could hang in my craft room to put all my ideas on
So I covered the clipboard with some circus paper that I had (yes, yes I know it's upside down... didn't notice till the modge podge had already started to dry!)
Then I cut out the circus figures from some Graphic 45 paper I had laying around
(ha ha ha not laying around! That stuff is like gold in my craft room!)
I did some distressing of the edges, and used some punchinella to make those pretty dots all
over the background!
Then I hated the silver of the clippy part, so I painted it brown.. that wasn't quite right, so the I added
some bronze ink by just dabbing it on.
I like the effect, but needed more texture (more texture, more texture!)
So I added the cute buttons
Plus you can see the bronze color of the clippy on this close up too!
Finally I added the strip of lace ribbon on the bottom, and the gold vinyl letters on the
side to spell "idea's"
And hubby drilled a hole in the wall and up it went!
I still haven't used it, but that's probably cause it's just so fun to look at!
Don't forget to make up your own fun project using texture, and slap it up on the
challenge blog! And if you don't at least hop on over there and check out all the
inspiration that the Design Team has come up with!
