An altered clipboard for my Shamballa's!







I did promise you that I would try to add a few more examples of work for the challenge I set for this month's Time to Create Challenge over on Carolyn's!  I didn't really plan for this one...it just sort of materialised. It all started when I got my dad a new clipboard and he showed me the tatty, ancient one he had been using for years. Now not being one who likes to see waste, this clipboard had plenty of life left in it...in my rose tinted spectacle opinion! Take a look, can you see the potential?


Well, apparently my dad didn't. He said to my mum that I would never be organised with all the clutter I picked up. (I will not publish his exact words, too much bleeping out!)

Now, what with my very recent attempts at making Shamballa bracelets I felt the need of a bit of customising so I got ripping up that old book again for a bit of very random decoupatch. Several layers later I decided to cut and stick a ruler strip of BG paper down one side to help me gauge the sizings of the bracelets as I make them.

Finished with a light dusting of flowers, butterflies, ribbon and a bit of ink....voila!

Brilliant

Just outside our village a 'lock up' is holding Shamballa bracelet classes. They are a bit expensive so keep wondering whether to go
