Don't Forget ...

I recently bought a cheap wipe clean notice board, to help me remember the crafty makes I need to make.

This weekend I played nicely with it and I am very pleased with the finished look.


Wipe clean board from The Range.
Indigoblu acrylic paint hot cocoa & pantry white.
Reeves metallic acrylic paint.
Spellbinders cutting dies leaves, fantastic flourish one.
Cheery Lyn cutting dies, leaves, large flower, lily.
Silicone mould, buttons, key, bee & crown.
Indigoblu stamps, sheet music & flutterby.
Distress inks, various colours.
Hot glue.
Cosmic shimmer spray green.
Cardstock and acetate.


I removed the white wipe clean board, leaving just the frame.
The frame was then painted with brown paint. Once dry I applied the hot glue to the frame randomly. A second coat of brown was then applied. To give the frame an aged look I applied a small amount of  white paint using  A dry brush.

The leaves were made using the cutting dies and applying a small amount of cosmic shimmer spray.
The flowers were created by first stamping the sheet music stamp onto white card stock, then die cutting flowers. Coloured using the distress inks with an ink duster and finished with little stamens.
The remaining embellishments were all made out of air dry clay and silicone moulds, then painted using metallic paints.

The butterfly was stamped onto metallic card stock and acetate. The acetate butterfly was coloured using promarkers then mounted on top of the card version.

The scroll of music was by stamping the sheet music stamp onto white paper, then distressed using distress inks and tied with an odd piece of cord to hold together.

All the embellishments were stuck to the frame using silicone glue.

The wipe clean white board was the slid back into place .

I have enjoyed making this really useful item.
