I wasn’t sure about posting this one, it is definitely not my usual type of project. And if I am being totally honest, it is a bit of a mess. It wasn’t my idea, but I needed to make a sample, so it happened.
I work with the youth in my church, specifically the young women ages 14-15, and this was our project last Wednesday night. One of the girls had suggested this activity and we went at it. I was to make the sample and I rushed through it a bit too quickly. We only have a little over an hour to work with, so I was on a timer. Also, this wouldn’t be my best crafting area. It is so okay to know there are areas to improve in, and I don’t mind sharing my learning opportunities. (I don’t like to call them mistakes.)
I used two sheets of dsp for this project. I love the paper. I did get a bit of teasing from the girls. “Are those artichokes?” Yes they are, and I love them. The back side of the paper reminded me of a double wedding ring quilt pattern, so it was a win all the way around. We were to modge podge pretty paper to a clip board, add some decoration, and finish it off with a favorite inspirational quote. I have creases and bubbles, but I still love it. I also got into my retired stash of ribbon and found a bunch to use. I will be happily using this clipboard. I do need to sand the edges a bit, but otherwise, it is all done.
Have a creative day!
