you may remember that I shared some finds out our local recycle shop and said that I would show you have I use or alter them??
Well I used this very weathered clipbaord (the leather like folder is still waiting alterations lol)
and made this
I heard the quote, or maybe I saw it cos I think it might have been written, on a preview for Mao’s Last Dancer
Had to use it :)
I started by covering the metal part with masking tape, to keep it safe from my paint
I then covered the clipboard with gesso and then some sewing pattern tissue paper, you can just see the lines through the paint. In real life you can see through it more.
I then painted over the top
When the paint was dry I used Hambly doily rubons, LOVE LOVE LOVE
I also inked the sides of the clipboard with black ink
I used some black paint to write the quote and then went over that with a white paint marker pen
A coat of mod podge to seal it all, removed the masking tape and voila :)
