A pretty clipboard cum chalkboard...:)


Chalkboard-fun

LESSology Challenge #58: Chalkboard Fun is all about playing with a real or faux chalkboard. I altered a clipboard with some chalkboard paint and pretty stuff. :)


I started with this old Typo clipboard that I've had for years and my fave Martha Stewart chalkboard paint. 


Next, I adhered this gorgeous lace with matte medium (you can use an adhesive of your choice).


Then I decorated the top of the clip with pretty stuff so that it looks lovely but still remains functional as a clipboard. Why yes...this project required TWO tassels instead of one. *winks*


Once that was done, I proceeded to write with a pastel pencil on my new clipboard cum chalkboard. It works like a piece of chalk minus the chalk dust.

What a great idea, and how absolutely beautiful! I LOVE the blue chalkboard, and LOVE all the pretty lace and embellishments. I think this rocks with the two tassels! thanks for the tip on the pastel pencil, too. Didn't know they would work.

It's gorgeous! And I love the idea of writing with a pastel pencil. Not only is there no dust, but it's so much easier to write neatly than with a stick of chalk.
