Happy New Year!

Over the holidays I've been playing with old peices of hardboard, magnetic paint and magnetic sheets, which I have die cut, inked or covered. I bought the magnetic sheets more than a year ago so really felt I needed to get on with a project to use them.

I painted the boards with blackboard/magnetic paint using a sponge roller, for quickness really, as I had a few to do - for a Special Projects day coming up! I used 3 coats of paint, drying them in between with an old hair dryer (well it is now!)

The butterflies, letters and leaves were all die cut from the magnetic sheets. The butterflies have been cut and covered with Stampin' Up Blushing Bride designer paper from the stack, the leaves have just been daubed with Pear Pizzazz ink and the letters have been left white.

This was a really fun project to make, the magnetic die cuts cling nicely onto the board holding the note in place.

Wishing you all a very happy and crafty 2011.
