My scrapping style has definitely changed since then and I decided that the clipboard needed updating........
I created the background on the clipboard in exactly the same way that I did the tin in my last post, think I am getting a bit obsessed with crackle glaze at the moment!!
For those who have read my blog for any length of time you will know that I love to add butterflies to my projects, I usually punch them with a Martha Stewart punch but I have found the most gorgeous butterfly stamps and I am totally hooked. They are Websters Pages Itty Bitty stamps and they are great to stamp directly onto your project or cut out and colour to coordinate with your colour scheme.
I layered some Tim Holtz tissue tape across the bottom and down the centre of the clipboard to create my background. I also stamped some images and cut them out and added them on top of the tissue tape.
I chose two small photos and trimmed them down so that they would both fit onto the packaging from a prima vine, this years collection has the most gorgeous packaging covered in flowers and butterflies which is much too good to throw away. I added machine stitching around the edge of each photo and then added a thin piece of chipboard behind each one before sticking them onto the prima packaging. I stitched a piece of lace across the top and added two thin strips of scalloped paper down each side. Everything has of course been inked!
I added the prima vine which was just perfect for this project and then added more flowers, butterflies, chipboard hearts and stamped words.
I machine stitched a narrow strip of paper onto a piece of lace and then added that to the bottom of the clipboard.
I am off to the hairdressers in a minute with Emily to have a trial for her prom, she isn't 100% sure how she wants her hair but she has a few ideas, I am sure it will be stunning. I am not sure who is more excited about the day, Emily or me!
