Find the Time - Altered Art
Hello my friends. I am here today to share with you my very first altered art clip board. I have been wanting to make one of these for a while and Michael's had this covered clip board on sale, so thought it was calling out to me.
I love how this turned out, so let me show you what I did.
I started with this clip board. It was covered when I purchased it, so I had a great canvas to start with.
Before I started to alter it, I brushed the board with some Gesso to give it a more faded look.
I then used my Mini Harlequin stencil from So Suzy Stamps along with some texture paste to add some dimension to it. I also added some Tim Holtz ticket washi tape and glued it down with some Mod Podge.
You may be able to see some blues and pinks on the burlap, I added Broken China and Victorian Velvet Distress Stain and then used Fired Brick and Peeled Paint Distress paint to give the stenciled area some color.
From there it was just a matter of finding pieces of ephemera, and embellishments to bring it together. I must say this Tim Holtz Weathered Clock Die has certainly been earning it's keep. I LOVE it and use it often. Well worth the purchase!
I found the roses over at Ephemera's Vintage Garden. You can sign up and get a freebie emailed to you every Friday. Another great find! The BLISS ticket is from Tim Holtz' idea-ology collection called Adage Tickets.
Then finished it off with some letter chip board and another Tim Holtz embellishment called Plaquettes.
I created this to enter it into the challenge over at A Vintage Journey, but hopefully I will find a few more to enter it into as well. I am also linking up to Becca's Birthday Link Up givaway! She has created a mood board and challenged us to use items on it to create a project. One of her favorites is textured cards and teals. I have lots of texture in this piece and did throw in some teal distress stain.
Here is her mood board. Hopefully you can play along. She has some fabulous prize!
This was a lot of fun to create, I think I will have to do a few more!
Thanks for stopping by!
