How to : Alter a clip board by Rachael

How to...

I painted the clipboard with a coat of white acrylic paint and when that had dried thoroughly I added a layer of crackle glaze. On top of that went another layer of paint, I chose pale pink, you have to ensure that the crackle glaze is totally dry before you add the top coat and don't go over areas once you have added the paint as it starts to crack very quickly. I stamped some images onto the clipboard using distress inks and used a stencil brush to add some ink around the edges. To seal the whole project I covered it all with a matt varnish.
Then came the fun bit...decorating the clipboard! I used a Prima branch and flowers, Tim Holtz tissue tape, some Girls Paperie papers along with gardeners twine, lace, chipboard hearts and some Websters Itty Bitty stamps.
