Altered Clipboard-Purple of course : )

Hey everyone..I have a super fun and super easy project to share with you today. If you're a regular follower of my blog or know me in real life then you know that I love to go junkin & pick up all kinds of treasures that I can alter or scrap up. Well today's project is all about one of my altered clipboard.

This is just your basic brown clipboard you can pretty much find anywhere BUT I picked this little thing up for a quarter!! I wanted to make something that I could use in my room and clip inspirational photos or project ideas on. So I had to go with a purple color scheme of course : )

I painted the entire clipboard with some tan/beige craft paint. then sanded the edges for a distressed look. I used the Chateau Lavender stack from DCWV...cut the papers to the size I wanted and then used Modge Podge on the whole thing. I didn't want the edges of the CS to come up when I actually used it.

For the bottom I added some flowers..bling and some buttons. I used these really cool embellis from Mon Ami Gabby they're called Bon Bons and they are a lot of fun to play with. I thought they made kind of a cool little design on the bottom corner. I just applied some Glossy Accents on the pattern in the CS and added the Bon Bons & added a strip of some velvet like trim.

Topped off the clipboard with a variety of lace, ribbon & trim.

Here's the backside...

Such a fun project to make!! 

Thanks for stopping by and thank you also for the sweet comments you all leave me...I truly appreciate each one of them : )

Happy Scrappin!!
