Fine Art Dashboard

Hazel Soan & Inam

Someone recently told me about some fine art catalogues being given away by a local art shop and I knew I must have some.  I hadn't planned on making a new dashboard but I did have an idea in the back of my mind when I saw the catalogues.  The images inside are beautiful and perfect for making into dashboards, here is the one I've made for my personal Songbird.

Dashboard Front - Hazel Soan Dappled Light IV

Dashboard Reverse - Inam Into The Woods

The dashboards were quick and inexpensive to make with items I already had.  I trimmed the images, glued them back to back and then laminated and trimmed them.  I think they're not only useful but lovely to look at as well. 

Until next time

To Do Pages


When I made  up my last pages for general notes and to do lists I thought they'd benefit from a little personalisation and this is what I created.

General To Do List

The flower post it was part of a book bought on sale in Paperchase for £2.25.  The grateful stamp is part of a set of five stampers bought on Amazon UK.

More To Do Lists

The stampers and flowered post it are again from the same sources.  The To Do sticker came from a pack I purchased from the Range.

The birds came from the Range, the pink squares came from an independent art shop, the To Do list I made myself with OneNote 2010 and finally I used a scrap of Washi tape.

The personalisation gives my pages variety and stops them from looking to bland.  With all the bits and pieces I have for personalisation no two pages need ever look the same.

Until next time
