altered clipboard

Hello, and welcome to Day 2 of Echo Park Blog Appreciation!! I am excited to share this altered clipboard with you today! It's such a simple and quick project, but it's great for both function and decor!! For this project, I used EP's Be Mine collection (including an image from the cover sheet of the collection pack)!!


I used a small clipboard that I got from Office Depot, traced around the clipboard on my pattern paper of choice (love that pink pattern paper), then trimmed around the tracing being sure to cut inside the lines I drew. I adhered that to the clipboard with some matte gel medium. Then I just embellished the bottom with other elements from the collection. The framed birdcage is an image from the cover sheet of the collection pack. There is a sticker on the sticker sheet, but I preferred the sizing of this image. There's really no right or wrong way to embellish your clipboard if you chose to do this. Just keep adding until it looks right to you. I knew that I might want to use this for the infamous to-do list, so I kept the top portion flat with no embellishing. But you could add more and use it to hold a photo or memorabilia. The sky's the limit!! Once I was done adding the embellishment, I gave it a good coat of the matte gel medium to cover it and seal it all in!! Can't wait to have this hanging in my office!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
