Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the World Traveler Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is
USE PATTERNED PAPERS
With all of the background stamps, stencils and paints out there patterned papers have been taking a back seat, especially in the word of mixed media, so we thought it was about time we included them in our projects!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Please pop by to see what our Designer in the Spotlight, Alison, has made, she truly is an inspiration!
When I saw Kath's decorated clipboard a few weeks ago I just had to get one for me! I love that we inspire each other to have a go at making things that we would never have thought of! I started by painting the Mini Clipboard with White Gesso and then blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over the top. I cut a piece of the Tissue Wrap and blended the same ink on the 'wrong' side, I then covered the whole board with Multi Medium Matte Glue and adhered it in place.
I love the effect simple spritzing and splattering can give, and it's fun!
I splattered with Dylusions White Linen, Black Marble and Vibrant Turquoise ink.
I 'aged' the clip slightly with gesso and alcohol inks
For the flap I cut a piece of paper from a Lost and Found Paper Pack and inked to match the base. I decorated the flap with Wildflowers and Botanical Remnant Rubs, I love how this turned out and think these would make great gifts!
I love my clipboard! It matches my 'loft' and is a lovely way for me to jot down what supplies I NEED ;-)
So now it's YOUR turn to dig your papers out and cut into them!
