My Other Creations: Fabric Inspiration Board

There's no better theme for a Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge than "Anything Goes."  And since the creative field is wide open, I went with one of my favorite mediums: fabric!  This week I made a magnetic inspiration board.


This is made with fabric scraps and is stamped with Distress Inks and gesso.  I even did some heat embossing with some subtle white patterns.  Here's a closer look:


And can you ever use too many Prima flowers?  I attached this one to the side to remind me that Spring (hopefully) isn't so far away after all!


Magnetic inspiration boards are a great way to keep yourself surrounded with beautiful things (as well as keep organized).  I finished it off with a white frame and it now hangs on my craft room wall to remind me of all things lovely.

To make my project, I used the following products available from Simon Says Stamp:



With a theme of "Anything Goes," I can't wait to see what marvelous creations you come up with this week!  Be sure to upload your projects to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store. 50dollar_voucher_600px
