This past Sunday afternoon my upline Denise, her upline Ruth, a friend Dodie and I got together to make clipboard projects. Each design was the sole idea of the designer and did we have fun with this project! We all used Stampin'Up products, but I found a sheet of unknown maker printed paper that spoke to me and this is what I came up with. The soft green plaid paper covers the back of the clipboard and edges of the front. The flower was on the other side of the patterned piece so I cut out the flower mounted it on SU Night of Navy to make it stand out and added it to the front panel. I used the swirl stamp from Baroque Motifs to accent the design in Night of Navy Craft ink on the front panel. The panel was created from the fabulous new Presto Patterns Specialty paper which is in the new Summer Mini Catalog. This paper is white with a lusterous sheen giving the imagination full range on how to use it! I chose the criss-cross design brayering it in Rose Red to bring out the pattern and a soft subtle look. To complete the clipboard I punched small flowers from the Boho flowers punch added pearls from the Pretties Kit which were also put on the large flower and swirls for accent. Paper was placed inside the pen casing and tied to the clipboard with stretchy silver cord.
We had a great time with this project!
