Hello crafty friends! So glad you stopped by for a visit. April is here and I'm so glad to be seeing all the signs of spring. By now the kids in school are probably starting to count the days until their summer holiday just like mine used to back in the day. My son is in university overseas and just finished his application to spend a second year there, so it got me reminiscing and I pulled out some of their portraits from elementary school days.
I had so much fun embellishing Gypsy Soul's adorable mini clipboards with the sweet images I found in the ABC Primer collection from Graphic 45. Some of the pieces I used were from the chipboard punch outs, some from the sticker sheet, and some I fussy cut from the adorable papers. I mounted the clipboards in a 12x12 frame on a sheet of cork to create the look of a bulletin board.
The chipboard letters and numbers are from Gypsy Soul's Mixed Media Fragments 1...I just painted them with acrylic paint and inked the edges to complement the vintage feel of the papers.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful colourful creative day!
