Welcome to 'day 2' of Crate Paper's Clip & Create festivities. Our CP Gals are remodeling clipboards this week! Today, CP Gal Melissa Phillips conveys homespun happiness & Craft Market as part of her clipboard redo.
MELISSA PHILLIPS: I love clipboards...large, small, miniature, you name it :). In my mind, clipboards are the perfect element in creating pieces of art ready to hang in your craft space, kitchen, child's room, etc. They can be fun and functional, or just fun to look at.
I chose to create a "just for fun" clipboard inspired by the beautiful mood boards you see floating around Pinterest. I decided to focus on a color scheme that I found inspiring, soothing, and perfectly me.
I used many elements from the Craft Market collection including Ephemera Die-Cuts, chipboard, glittered clothespins, and cardstock stickers.
I wanted to leave my clipboard natural instead of painting it because the color is so beautiful and combines perfectly with the aquas, creams, and pinks used in my color combination.
I love the touches of gold glitter brought in by the Craft Market Ephemera Die-Cuts, the vintage inspired postage stamps, and the burlap print on the chipboard...little things that add character, age, and touch-ability.
I added just a few of my own special touches such as tiny paper flowers, sequins, and wooden spools wrapped in fabric tape, tea-stained twill, and vintage lace. These things bring in more of my own personality and create a homespun feel which I am always striving to achieve.
