French Inspired Altered Clipboard
Bonjour les amis de chalets (Hello cottage friends),
Can you tell I'm feeling a little French today? The reason lies with the lovely French mademoiselle on my altered clipboard. She's patiently waited three months for me to embellish her.
Right after I finished the French Script Bottle I found an old clipboard for 25 cents at a thrift store. It was in the spring, and the song April in Paris was playing in my head. I knew this was a sign for me to do another French Script Mod Podge project.
I downloaded French Sheet Music and Antique Paris Fashion printables from The Graphics Fairy and did my Mod Podge thing. I painted the clip a soft green, but I didn't like it, so I repainted it in ivory and I didn't like that either. So, in my typical I'll-wait-until-I-feel-inspired-again fashion, I set Mademoiselle Clipboard aside.
In the meantime I had collected some odds and ends for crafting -- a little doily, a baby food jar filled with old buttons -- all found at thrift stores (I'm frugal like that) -- and I dried some pink carnations (I'm frugal like that, too).
Inspiration hit Sunday afternoon.
I like the way Mademoiselle Clipboard turned out. A little shabby chique using crafty things I had on hand.
This project took about an hour to complete, start to finish. I like that. How much time do you like to spend on a project?
