Altered Clipboard

     This is a project that I just absolutely love every time I see it and I see it everyday.   I absolutely love it when something practical can be made pretty or interesting.  This was my very old and abused clipboard.  I use it constantly because as my children will tell you, if you don't write it down it didn't or won't  happen.  I spent a weekend dolling it up while I was at the farm last summer.

    The clipboard itself was painted with metallic blue acrylic paint before anything else was done to it.  Next K& CO. background papers were added and then the embellishing began.  The Tim Holtz birdcage die looked fab on it so on it went and that set the theme of butterflies, flowers and birds. I had no idea where this was going until it arrived there.  I have acrylic stickers, border punches, pearls, crystal flourishes, prisma flowers, dimensional stickers, and silk flower leaves on this board.

     I was told that it was too pretty to use and that it would not take the abuse I put it through, but a year later it's still as kewl as the day I finished it and I'm still using it.
