Hello crafty friends! It's Julia here today and I'm back with with another project using the Small Patterns Collection.
This week I created a mixed media clipboard. I started with a 6" x 9" clipboard that I've had in my stash for quite some time.
I cut up a bunch of squares from the Small Pattern papers then I used matte medium to glue them to the clipboard.
Once all my pieces were adhered down and completely dry, I trimmed off the excess paper. Next I applied some molding paste through a script stencil to add some texture.
After the texture paste was dry, I dry-brushed some gesso over then entire surface of the clipboard. I used a baby wipe to wipe back some of the gesso in places to expose some of the pattern paper.
I used some Victoria Velvet Distress Paint to add some colour. I sprayed the paint with some water and let it drip over the stenciled texture. I did this several time - making sure to dry each layer.
Another stash find was this Resin Frame from Prima. I painted it with Victoria Velvet Distress Paint then used Hickory Smoke Distress Paint to highlight the details of the frame.
I added some splatters with Victoria Velvet & Hickory Smoke Distress Paints to the clipboard.
To finish off my clipboard I added some paper flowers, Prima Copper Micro Beads and a Quote Chip from Tim Holtz idea-ology Collection.
Thanks so much for joining me today on the Wild Whisper blog. Come back to the blog everyday for even more inspiration from the design team.
