Creative Inspirations 'Anything but a Card' clipboard


The challenge at Creative Inspirations this week is to make 'Anything but a card'.

I've 'altered' a clipboard to make a wallhanging of DD's 18th birthday......distressed the clipboard with white acrylic paint and silver rubbed round the edges.....used oddments of black and white card and embellishments [Doodlebug I think].....and matted the photos with red card......an assortment of black and red ribbons to 'hide' the big clip at the top....and also black and white fibres down the side.....the sentiments [which you probably can't read] are black on self adhesive acrylic and say 'moments' 'dreams' 'play' 'giggle' and 'inspire' . I have hung 3 of them from the bottom of the clipboard using more black fibres and red card.
The great thing with clipboards is you can easily hang them with the clip.....only problem with this one is that DD now wants it.....so may have to make another one!!!!
