Shabby Vintage Clipboard

Shabby Clipboard 2509

More new products today from Clear Scraps.

This was a fun project.

When I first got this new acrylic clipboard I wasn’t sure how I was going to use it.

Once I got a clearer vision on how I wanted it to look, inspiration soon followed.

Now, I can’t wait to make another one.

Here’s the link to all of the NEW PRODUCTS from Clear Scraps.

Supplies Used:

  1. Spray the back of the clipboard with the IrRESISTible Texture Spray to give it a soft lacey look and dab the edges with White Picket Fence paint.  (Both paints work great on acrylic.)

  3. Adhere mirror embellishment to corner of clipboard
  4. Embellish Clipboard with Vintage Trim and Lace.

Grandkids are Blessings

Grandkids are Blessings Layout with Truck

I have two adorable grandsons who are just the sweetest little guys.

I just love being around these two.  So many smiles, hugs and lots and lots of love.

Being a Grandma is Wonderful.  (Although I’m sure I don’t look old enough to be a Grandma)

My Grandkids are definitely a Blessing.

The “Grandkids are Blessings” Layout was made with:          (*affiliate link)

Tip:  I sprayed the Irresistible Texture sprays fairly thick on the front of the word “blessings” and allowed a couple of hours to dry before adhering to my page with Glaz On.
