Altered Magnolia Tilda in the Garden Clipboard

Good morning and happy week. Well at least so far my week is not too bad, so I assume my week is happy, lol. Today I am showing you an altered project. I've never made an altered clipboard but always wanted to try one. The other day, when I went to a dollar store, I saw a clipboard, so it gave me the idea on trying one out, so I did! This one I used Tilda In The Garden from Magnolia-licious. Because this clipboard is to lay under paper for writing, I don't want to put too much dimension.

The clipboard is longer than 12 inches, so DP is not long enough for this, so I just cover the side and cut another piece of DP to cover the top part of the board. You see this narrow pink strip on the top part? That is to cover the gap between the two DPs.

Since I wanted to make a cheerful clipboard, I went to my pattern paper stack to look through and found these colorful and cheerful DP and here is my finished project. After I finished adhered the whole piece together, I paint a few coatings of "Mod Podge" to add some glossy effect on top yet to secure the adhered DPs, punched borders, and the image.

Here is my completed project and I am using this for the following challenges:
The Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge #12 - anything but a card
I Did It Creations Challenge #43 - Punches or Dies
Flashback Friday Challenge 8.0 - 3D project
DYSU Challenge #8 - Anything Goes
PCJ Challenge #4 - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenge #47 - Girly girl
StampFairy Challenge - Anything but a card
Woodward USA Challenge #16 - Anything Goes




Closer view on this Tilda image.


Closer view on the clip, I tied some coordinating ribbons to match up some of the DP's colors. I went to Michael's the other day and saw a package of metal butterflies from the Recollection embellishment section.


Not sure if you can see it better on this picture, but the whole clipboard was brushed with coatings of Mod Podge to seal the image and DP.
