Clipboards with Style

I've had an itch to create some stylish and crafty clipboards so after I finished my blocks project today I pulled them out.  Sorting through a stack of scrapbook paper, I found two that I thought would be perfect.  This first one is a reprint of some lovely fabric...a simple but stylish pattern.  I embellished it with with some super cool stickers that are really interesting and complimentary.
Mod Podge has really been my friend lately and these are more mod podge projects.  The butterfly stripe is an embossed sticker.  Of course...I love the typewriter key stickers.  Here is a close up view for you.
This second clip board has an real altered art look to it.  I ripped some papers to go over the base paper (which I love)...again, Mod Podge rocks.  Just a few letter stickers were applied, they say "take note".  With both clipboards, I made sure to keep the details at the edges so there are lumps and bumps when you're writing on your paper.  After I photographed them, I brushed on a smooth coat of satin varnish to protect the project.    Look for them at my Esty shop soon.  These are a first for me and I think I am loving them, need to dig out some more clipboards.  Another National Craft Month project...woohoo!
