Vintage Cameo Clipboard
Basecoat clipboard and metal clip in desired colour. I have used an A5 board for this project. I have use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Print out a laser image on paper. Apply #DecoArt Photo Transfer Medium over the paper image, and adhere onto board. Wait for the paper to dry.
Apply water to the paper and gently rub of the backing with your fingers to reveal the transferred image. Choose a stencil to your liking. and stencil in the whole background using a foam wedge in grey acrylic paint.
Steps 3 and 4
Sand over the stenciling with fine sandpaper to give a distress look to your background. Use matte medium to adhere your vintage image in place ( This one is from the Pion range, Grandmas Attic)
Collage some script papers and washi tape into your background.
Paint in your circles for flowers and leaves. You may also choose to stencil flowers if you prefer.
Step 6 & 7
Finish painting in your roses using an angle flat shader in White acrylic paint. Apply Texture to the background using Modelling/ Texture Paste with a palette knife. allow to dry. Apply wax paste to the metal clip and the clipboard edges. I have used # DecoArt Metallic Lustre Iced Expresso. Use a hot glue gun to secure the cameo brooch onto the clip.
Finishing : Add your own message to your clipboard. I have used some Tim Holtz adhesive words, stamps and handwriting combined. Stamp the butterfly stamp ( Kaisercraft) using Stazon Black Ink into the background.
