I like to try out new ideas from time to time. I found these blank recycled mini clipboards for $1, so I decided to do a bit of altering. First I painted it with Gesso... do I sound like I know what I'm talking about? Well, it's all an act. Truthfully, I have no idea if its better to use Gesso or regular white acrylic paint. Maybe I'll never know.
After giving it a coat of Gesso, I decided to add some of my treasured Prima DP from the Fairybelle collection. You can't see it too good cause I got Akemi's photo over it, but its really pretty! I adhered it using mod podge instead of just regular adhesive.
Then I started embellishing. First I chose the large white Prima flower to cover the clip part of the board. Next to it, I added in some Prima aqua roses w/white tips. Love those for a shabby look. Then I made another wire heart and added some bling and more roses. Then I cut a pink mat and clipped the photo over it. I think I like the fact that you can change out the photo if you like. Plus, since it's also a clip board, you can easily hang it on the wall!
I've been on you tube a lot recently and found so many amazing projects! I can't share some of them yet since they are gifts to some special friends...

And for those of you who followed my Japan adventure a couple of years ago.. we are going again! This time we are heading to the Snow Festival in Sapporo, so we'll likely freeze our buns off. I'm hoping to keep a blog diary again of our trip, so you might want to check back if you want to see what we are up to on our next Japan Adventure!
