Altered Clipboard- Corkboard



Wrapping up my week of a detailed look at the elments that made up my Altered Corkboard.  For my Altered Clipboard that holds my seasonal Fall/ Halloween tag I used papers and layers of the season. 

I used Modge Podge on my $1 clipboard and trimmed the patter paper to fit.  How did I ever craft without modge podge?

To ensure a good seal I used my brayer. 

Ohhhhh love this die and I loved using it.  I cut grundge board and orange glitter paper and clued.  Usually I would grab back or grey but orange is fun!

I cut weathered clock, painted it black and coated the clock in rock candy.  Isn't the 31 pattern resist paper FUN!

It's my husbands mission to help by providing beer bottle caps.  He loves beer from all over the world so I can collect some pretty unique caps.  I picked up this charm from a charm braclet, another $1 store find.  Add a little alcohol ink and it becomes a custom fit.

To further distress my weathered clock I sanded down the the edges.

Candlelight Fright is shrunk down to this charm size candelabra measuring about an 1 1/4".  I used some alcohol inks, caramel and butterscotch to give it a yummy warm glow.  I played with my melting pot, shrink paper and Tim Holtz dies to create this charming treat.

Using the ticket die and TH stamps, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, inked and a thick layer of rock candy.  A perfect accent tucked beside the candelabra charm.  A mini vintage clip is the prefect size and fits the ticket.

I mounted a peice of wooden ruler along the bottom of the board and layered the BOO, a stamped cork peice, the candelabra and ticket. I left the strands of hot glue to give it a webbed feel.

The final thouch is clipping my tag on. 

Just incase you missed it.  My cork board all pulled together including this clipboard.

Thanks for stopping by and if you stopped by all week I hope you'll try this too!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
