I decided to make a memo board. It was something out of my realm of experience and something I knew I could use.
I started off by picking the size of canvas that I wanted to work with. I then painted two coats of white in acrylic paint over the entire canvas. Thankfully, they had craft dryers to helps the paint dry quickly. I then used masking tape to create a 1" thick boarder on the outside and painted the inner portion a bright blue with three coats of acrylic.
Instead of using masking tape to create the checker board boarder, I just painted in the black free hand with a ____ wide paint brush.
The next step was to complete the lettering. I decided to try using a rubber stamp. Unfortunately it didn't work very well so I had to go over the letters with a paint brush a few times.
I then applied the stars (puffy stickers), painted the clothespins and applied them.

And finally I attached the ribbon to hang it on the wall.
The whole project took about two hours.
