Note Board by Gemma Hynes

 Hello Everyone

For my post today I wanted to share with you all a little note board I created on a piece of black chipboard. It's supper handy to hang next to my table to keep track of supplies used in projects or those very handy to do lists.

Cut a piece of chipboard to the desired size and mask off a boarder around the edge with low tack tape, then paint a layer of yellow acrylic paint over the top.

Place the honeycomb over the top and sponge through some red acrylic paint, remembering to check the bottom of the mask for paint before moving and lining it up to the next section. 

Mix the left over red and yellow paint together, apply this to the honeycomb background stamp and in random places stamp over the whole board.

Taking some white acrylic paint and the same stamps, stamp over the whole board, this time ensuring most of the board is covered. Then using black archival ink stamp over the top of the whole board with a calligraphy mat

Add the word notes to the top of the board and stamp the bees from the honeycomb stamp set in both the top right and bottom right corners. Glue your note pads in place I make mine from plain printer paper.

I stamped the word happy from the framed words 1 set between the two bees at the bottom. To finish remove the tape from the edges of the board and punch two hole in the top to add string so the board can be hung in place.

Thank you for reading, Please leave us comments and tell us what you think, The next creative challenge will be starting shortly and I can not wait to see everyones entries.
