FaveCraft CHA Bloggers Event: Craft 2016: Dream DIY Gold Altered Clipboard

This Gold Dream DIY Clipboard is entered in FaveCraft Best Blogger Crafts 2016 (until 4/6). I would love your support by voting for my project

Today I am sharing a clipboard that I created from scratch using chipboard, metallic gold material, coloring book page, black cardstock and a word sticker! Lots of materials but love the end result. Let me share my process...

Die-cut three rectangles from Spellbinders® Grand Rectangle Die #5 (the smallest sized die is #1): one each of chipboard, Fairfield™ World Oly-Fun™ Metallic Gold material and black cardstock.

Apply Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Art Medium with a foam brush and adhere the rectangle chipboard and gold metallic material die cuts together.

While the clipboard base dries, die-cut another rectangle out of Leisure Arts Floral Wonders Color Art coloring book page.

Color the page with Testors® .25 oz acrylic paints and a paint brush for a vibrant accent to the clipboard.

After the paints dried, trim the page to the desired size and added the "dream" sticker in the center.

Trim the black cardstock rectangle to the desired size and adhere with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2".

Use the gold metallic material scraps to cut strips to create a border on the top and bottom of the coloring piece. Secured with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2".

Die-cut Sizzix® Easel Die with chipboard and secure with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2" on the back. Add the clip on top and it's ready to be displayed!

Thanks for stopping by :)
