I certainly like to use clipboards - they are my best friend when in the middle of a project with lots of details. I almost can't think through the details of a larger project without one in my hands! In my current project of de-cluttering my home, I have corralled a few of my beloved clipboards. I have to admit, they were lookin' a little worse for wear.
After being inspired at a quaint antique store I had the pleasure of visiting this last weekend, I decided they needed a little sprucin' up...a much needed a face lift.
This first one was definitely the workhorse of my clipboard entourage - it's an old fashioned, heavy one which has a real feel of authority to it. *smile* I decided it needed some antique-looking decoration. I used Collage Pauge and some fun scrapbooking paper - see what you think...

This clipboard rode around in my shul bag for assorted smaller projects and the much needed word-searches. It already had a Star Wars theme; I had stamped a bunch of my SW stamps onto the bare wood. But, this - yeah, I like this much better. I found this paper at Ben Franklin, and it had to come home with me.

But, this last one is the fun one. Inspired by a recent acquisition of a special coffee LTC (thanks MiSs cHiEvOuS!), I chose some of my favorite rubber stamp art out of my massive collection to grace this clipboard. I look forward to sharing this one with others in the future. I'm sure they will be in awe.

Collage Pauge so the ink didn't run.
I think these are artistic enough to just hang on the wall - I love them!
