Altered Clipboard

Years ago a friend altered a clipboard for me as a gift and it is still one of my favorite things so I thought I’d try my hand at altering one. I found these cute little clipboards at Walmart so thought I’d try a little one first.


I really sat down without a plan and just let the creative process flow. I started with my designer papers- Bazzill Timeless. I happen to have an extra package of this fab paper so I will pick one commenter on this post to send it to!


I just cut the paper into strips/sections and then used mod podge to adhere it. Next I sanded the edges just a touch and waited for it to dry. I then brushed on Luminarte Silks in Honey Amber and Solar Gold. Once that was dried I stamped Unique from the Authentic Words Set from Susana Loves Stamps in Archival Jet Black ink several times.


I wanted an image on this so I decided that Steampunk Eyes from Susana Loves Stamps would be perfect. I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with copics and cut her out. I added touches of sparkle with a stardust pen. After I cut her out I noticed she just sort of disappeared into the design of the paper so I took some more Luminarte Silks in Vavoom Red and painted an area for her to be placed on so she’d stand out.




I adhered her with The Best Glue Ever and then added some diamond glaze to her goggles. To finish the clipboard I added some ribbons and fibers to the top.


I made this for a very special friend so I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great one!
