Clip boards are so useful and essential in my studio. Here is one way to jazz up a small one to hold notes and ideas. Paint the board dark brown. Tear a piece of stained ephemera and adhere. Glue on some torn lace fragments, top and bottom. Tie a double bow with old seam binding and glue to bottom with a button in center. Find an old broken buckle or brooch bits and another button and 2 rhinestones. Fix together and glue to the hinge with tacky glue. Hang above your desk or table for a picture perfect clip board.
