I don’t know about you, but I am obsessed with stationery. Pens, paper, clips and don’t get me started on washi tape…. I can remember as a child obsessively hoarding erasers and oh, the excitement of a new pencil case! I have calmed down slightly in my adult years, but I don’t think I’m alone in finding new stationery exciting.

I have had this plain clipboard for ages; it usually has my ‘jewellery to-make list’ on and I even put a email signup sheet on it at craft shows and workshops. But I  always felt it needed jazzing it up a bit!

You will need:

Hardboard Clipboard

-Ink stamps

-Rectangular Eraser

-Optional: craft knife and metal ruler

How to make:

1.Choose an eraser that has sharp, defined edges, as this will give you a better print. If like me, the eraser you have is really long, you can trim it to a better size.

2.Start out by using the long, narrow side of the eraser to print the lightest colour.

3.Continue printing in a random pattern

4.Then use the shorter end of the eraser to print the same colour in between the others.

5.Again, continue in a random pattern

6.Now take out your second colour and repeat steps 2 – 5

7.I found it better to space out the prints as if you have any gaps, you can always go back and add more, but you can’t take them away!

The ink dries almost instantly and I don’t feel the need to use any sealer. My clipboard looks much so much more cheerful!
