Summer's End Altered Clipboard with Rachelle!

Thursday, August 7, 2014


Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here today sharing my altered art clipboard with a surprise ending. I used the beautiful August Kit~Summer's End to create this clipboard. Let's get started with a basic clipboard.

Now let's look at the project. From the clipboard to this:


Here's how to create the altered art. First all chipboard and wooden elements were painted and inked.
Next, I applied layers We R Farmers Market - Heritage 12x12 Paper and light blue 12x12 cardstock to the board. Then I paper punched the blue cardstock and yellow cardstock and applied to the board.

Now it's time to apply the texture paste and use a Prima stencil. Allow to dry and begin inking and using Gimmer Mist Chalkboard - Cornflower and let dry. Then I started applying the embellishments. This kit came with beautiful
Prima Marketing Resin Icons - Fairies, Prima Marketing Resin Icons - Feathers, and Petaloo Penny Lane Mini Wild Roses - Peach. I also used Petallo roses from the July Kit, gold and teal.

 I continued applying the elements which included Petaloo Penny Lane Mix Flowers - Yellow and Trimcraft Curiosity Corner Metal Charms -clocks. I love working with clocks and metal charms because they add the perfect touch.

I applied yellow lace at the bottom and top along with a string of pearls. Next I placed the bird and birdcage on top of the We R Memory Keepers Indian Summer Wood Tags. The final touch was to place the light blue metal flower at the top of the clip, ribbons, Prima Laser Cuts - Leaves and Mushrooms, and more Prima Marketing Resin Icons - Fairies. All done! Now for a surprise.
I created this lovely card using hues of brown, yellow, and teal.

I distressed and inked the edges, applied the We R Memory Keepers Indian Summer Embossed Stickers and We R Indian Summer - Wildflower 12x12 Paper. You can see the layers that I applied along with all the beautiful embellishments.

So there you have it! The altered clipboard and card all created with the beautiful products from the August Kit~"Summer's End."

I hope you like these projects and have been inspired to create your project. I can't wait to see it!
