Art of Life Altered Clip Board

Art of Life Altered Clip Board
I have used the Kaiser Craft Paper Collection called Art of Life in this project. I love this paper because you can ink it with your chosen colour of Distress Ink to suit any theme.

 A close up view of the top clip.
 Here is the finished project. So lets get to it.
First I painted the edges with black gesso, back and front. Allow to dry.
 Cut the chosen paper to fit the clip board allowing a small border of the black to show. (I cut 4 inches by 11 inches.) Tear a piece about 3 inches up from the bottom. I used the flip side as the right side and formed a pocket at the base of the clip board.
 I used the envelope punch board to round the corners of my pocket piece.
 I inked all the edges using Distress ink aged mahogany. I then glued the pocket in place.
Use a stencil of your choice and spread  modelling paste through randomly. Allow to dry.

I coloured some seam binding with Distress stain Aged mahogany.
 I used  the collectable butterfly, coloured it with aged mahogany and then coated it with glossy accents.

I cut the Kaiser paper Brave to add to the clip board and chose some of the collectables to add to the pocket,
I inked all the pieces with aged mahogany. You can add note paper and tie a pen on this for messages. Lastly I added seam binding and fibers to the top clip to finish the project. Thanks for following. Wendy
