Brighten Your Desk With A Clipboard Bursting With Beautiful Blooms

Sunday, April 24, 2016

For the first time in my 40-something years, I have a desk job.

I really have adapted much better than I anticipated.
Being a dominant right brain-creative soul as opposed to an analytical lefty,
I've found that making my space pretty sure helps the doldrums of pushing papers all day.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a decoupage pot project I created,
inspired by a post from The Snug I ran across trending on Facebook,

Along with the pot, another of the projects were decoupaged clipboards.

Now wouldn't they just be some kind of fabulous to hold my otherwise bland notepad!

For my clipboard project, I grabbed a bottle of Mod Podge from my craft closet...

...after hitting the local Walmart for fabric, a clipboard,...

...and a pretty set of buttons.

I traced the shape of the clipboard onto the fabric,
and after cutting it out, adhered it in place with Mod-Podge,
and topped with several more coats.


The blue and green beautiful blooms are certain to add a little cheer to my little work space!

Hope you all have a great week,
and are able to carve out a little time for creating!  :)
