Friends of Unity, November 2021 Blog Hop, Non-Card Project

 Hello there! This month we are making anything that is not a card. I love that there are so many things you can do with stamps. They are so versatile. I can't wait to share what I made! I love the organic vibe of this graphic:



Here is my non-card project:









I altered a Tim Holtz mini clipboard. I have not altered a clipboard in quite some time. This clipboard is different from the others though. I did not incorporate stamping on those. I decoupaged pattern paper on them. The grungy sunflower is from the September 2020 SMAK Kit, everything is up to you. I really miss my SMAK. They had gorgeous, large stamps...perfect for altering various projects. The flowers were painted with Prima and Art Anthology paints. The sentiment is from what will be...will be. 

Here are the steps in altering this clipboard: first, remove the metal clip. Then apply clear gesso and let dry for 24 hours. Stamp flower randomly on the clipboard. Next, paint the flowers. Stamp sentiment on white card stock and place on journaling card. Round the edges with a corner rounder. Place sentiment on bottom right corner of clipboard with foam adhesive. Stick a metal memo pin in foam adhesive. Add metal heart. A wood butterfly button was placed in the center of the main flower. Add washi tape to film strip, cut to size, and place diagonally near the top of the clipboard. Finally, replace metal clip.

As you can see in the pictures, eyelash trim had been tied to the clip. I think I like it better without the eyelash trim. Which way do you like more?

Well that's it until next time. Here is the hop order just in case you need it:

  4. Wow, what a great project this is. Kudos to you for painting the flowers. I think everyone loves sunflowers and Unity has a lot of awesome sunflower stamps. I don't think it needs the eyelash trim, but it looks great either way.

  5. I agree, without, but that would depend on who's receiving it, a younger would love the fluff. Fun cute and practical, love it.

  14. What a pretty little altered clipboard, and it looks adorable with and without the eyelash trim. I'm pretty sure I have a whole stash of eyelash fiber that I've collected over the years. This is a fun way to use some of it!
