Hello, Crafty Peeps,
It's Winnie The Pooh Day
If you want to play our optional twist, we challenge you to:
Use one of the following quotes in your creation
WINNIE THE POOH CLIPBOARD
For this challenge, I chose to create a clipboard using recycled paper products.
I save various sizes of corrugated cardboard boxes. I have found that I can cover them with fabrics such as canvas, burlap, crinolin, and create strudy functional items. This is a functional clipboard and I have every intention of using in in my studio.
Chipboard (2 Pieces) cut to the desired size (mine is 5" x 7")
Paper Scraps (or other desired background papers)
Gesso, Mod Podge (or other matte gel medium)
Inks, Paints, etc.
Continue gluing pieces until you have your desired collage. Leave some white spaces
When you are satisfied, apply several coats of Mod Podge. Allow to dry between coats.
Fold and trim overlap. Remember that some the overlap will show on the back.
Choose the color(s) that will be your primary color (chose yellow/brown to coordinate with Pooh's fur) and apply to your panel. Use a baby wipe to mute your color
Round the corners of your clipboard at this point
While your panel is drying, apply Gesso to your clip. I decided to paint th red clip, but I could have used either clip without altering and they would have worked just as well.
I also taped my Winnie The Pooh Invitation Stamps so I could use just the image.
Choose paints, Inks, and/or sprays. Experiment until you achieve the desired color profile
Apply stamped or hand drawn images. Allow to dry, apply several coats of Mod Podge
Use your baby wipe to keep your colors from becoming muddy.
Determine the placement of your image and sentiment. Center Clip
Apply designer papers or other embellishment to clip
Attach Clip, add image and sentiment.
Apply several coats of Mod Podge until desired result is achieved
Apply back panel
I used Plain Jane Baseboard Brown by Tattered Angels
