For today's project, I thought I would try my hand at altering a clipboard.
I added flowers, did some stamping and a few sticker elements to create it.
Here's the pic for you to check out:
I used a 9 x 11 1/2" clipboard that I purchased from my local WalMart.
I painted the entire surface with a coat of gesso and then inked it with brown ink.
I added some lace stickers to frame the edges of the clipboard.
I used a sheet of 12 x 12" patterned paper from the Kirby Teasdale Studio pack from Hobby Lobby as my background.
I tore the edges, inked them and used mod podge to adhere it to the clipboard.
I then whitewashed the paper to tone down the pattern a bit.
Once dry, I used a Graphic 45 harlequin stamp and a Tim Holtz ruler and stitching lines stamps to add texture and interest.
I added some dots over the stamped images using a dot stencil and Antique Linen Distress Paint.
To finish off the background, I added a few acrylic paisley and flourish pieces.
I then set the clipboard aside to begin work on the image.
For the image, I printed it on white card stock and used my alcohol markers and paper piecing to fill her in.
Here's a quick rundown of the colors I used:
- Skin- Blush, Dusky Pink
-Hair- Tan, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon
-Corset, Stockings, Shoes- C01, C02, C03, C07
-Stool- CR3, C02
Dress Form, Legs- CR3, Blush, Tan, Cinnamon
For the dress, I used a pink polka dot patterned paper and my C03 to add shading.
I adhered the image to a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm card stock, roughed up the edges and inked them.
I stamped a stitching line along the right hand side.
I added a few thimbles to the bottom left corner and a Graphic 45 Metal Clothespin that says "Create" along the top.
I then backed the image panel on sheets of floral and neutral patterned papers.
I tore the edges, inked them and stamped them.
I used my ATG gun and pop dots to adhere them to the background.
I used a number of embellishments to bring this project to life.
I added a few Prima and Recollections flowers, lace trim, seam binding, twine bows and stamped pieces.
To finish it off, I adhered an acrylic bird, pearls, Glossy Accents to the stamped elements and the phrase "Its the little things that make life more enjoyable".
And voila!! Clipboard complete!!
I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
