I got this idea from the Farmer's Market Club Stamp Project. When I went to buy the board, they were out so I purchased a magnetic board from Target (on clearance, even!). I will be using this as my visualaztion board to post goals on (I got that idea from the Secret DVD).
I started with thin pieces of kraft paper. Using Distress Inks and Club Stamp Rhapsody stamps I created the foundation and covered the seams with ribbon. Some of the items are glued on to the board, but many of them are magnents. All of the phrases I used are meant to be reminders to myself of the direction I want to go.
One of my favorite pieces is the woman magnent. I had purchased beautiful brass pieces several years ago but never used them as they were quite spendy. I pushed delight modeling compound into the back of the brass piece using it as a mold. After letting her dry overnight, I used color wash spray , distress ink with a stipple brush, and Glimmer mist to highlight her, and then glued a magnent to the back.
This was a ton of fun to make and really does a good job of expressing my style and who I am!
Please note if you do a project like this, be sure to purchase strong magnents so they will work through not only your background paper, but also any papers you wish to display on your board as well.
