Fun Stenciled Clipboards {diy}


I had the opportunity to test out Plaid's new FolkArt Multi Surface Paints the past couple of weeks - so fun!  Not only that, but I also dabbled in some stenciling with the new Handmade Charlotte stencils.  Now I honestly just want to stencil anything I can get my hands on.  It's slightly addicting.  Both of these products are available at Michael's craft stores.

I truly love these paints - they are so versatile.  You can use them on practically any surface... fabric, wood, tin, glass, etc.  It's also dishwasher and wash machine safe!  Pretty neat, right?  And Handmade Charlotte has a ton of stencil designs to choose from.

My poor "office/craft area" is in dire need of attention.  It's the one thing that's been put on the back-burner since we moved into our home a year ago.  I decided to do a little stenciling on some clipboards for that room... a couple for decor, and a couple to hold my massive to-do lists (I mean very massive)..

The hard part was deciding what exactly I wanted to stencil on my clipboard.  I decided upon this little saying.. because I think it's something important I need to remind myself of often.  But once I got past that, the stenciling was a breeze!  ;)

First I used the tape to adhere the stencil to my project, so it would stay in place.  Then I took the small foam pouncers and I stippled the paint on.  Stippling helps so the paint doesn't bleed under the stencil.  For the white, I did two coats because I want to make sure it was nice and vivid.

I also did a couple more little stenciling projects to add a little life to my "office" area.. one of them being a pretty little heart stencil on one of my glass jars that holds some odd and ends.. tags for my Etsy items, a little ribbon, small clothespins, etc.  :)
