Belli Challenge #95 - Alter It!


It's time for another Belli Challenge and this week's challenge is to alter something you have lying around.  I won this cute little clipboard from Becca Feeken a few months ago and it's been sitting in my stamp room unfinished ever since.  This challenge was just what I needed to get it altered!

I used Mercy Kerin's sketch from last week for my layout, painted the clipboard with a couple of coats of ivory paint and then covered the front with some October Afternoon papers (Report Card and Fly A Kite collections). I used stamps from Papertrey Ink's Studio Style set and colored the buttons and jar using Copic and Spica markers. 

I usually keep a list of cards that I need to make, for design team assignments, birthdays, challenges, etc.  I used the paper crafting theme because I'm planning to keep this in my stamp room with my list clipped to it for reference.  Hopefully this will keep me a little more organized so I don't find myself in a panic the day an assignment is due because I forgot all about it (which is exactly what happened with this clipboard....).

Be sure to head over to the Belli Challenge blog and see what the rest of the design team has altered!  If you'd like to play along with us, pull a long lost treasure out of your stash (think tins, picture frames, jars, clipboards, notebooks, etc.) and alter it!  Be sure to leave a link to your project over on today's post on the Belli blog or use keyword CBC95 if you post it to Splitcoast Stampers.

Thanks for stopping by!
