What do you do will all your art tags?

I know long time no see! I have been so busy with work that I haven't had much time in my art room. I actually had a art day on Sunday and worked on 5 things at once and nothing is finished yet.

Today I thought I would show you what I made for my daughter for her birthday. She loves my tags but wanted something simple to display them on. Stampin Up had these clip boards with three clips. They don't make them any more but I bought quite a few.

This is what it looked like before I got my hands on it.

 
It's really nice heavy duty chip board and it doesn't buckle when you paint it or spray it. I decided that it had to be just one color so the tags would stand out. I decided to paint it black but it needed something else.
 
I first applied heavy gel medium through a stencil then let it dry. I painted it black but wiped some of the paint off to reveal the chipboard underneath then I added some gold acrylic ink  Here is a close up.
 
 
 
I gave my daughter almost all of my tags so this was a perfect way for her to display the tags but also switch them out during the year.  Here are some examples of Halloween, Christmas and an every day display.
 
 
 
 
 
She loved it and her wish has come true she has all my tags. Now it's time to make more!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope to have more to share soon!

  2. ooh, great idea- I have one of their clipboards, but never saw this one. I love the black textured background.
