Vintage Cameo Clipboard - Mixed Media Tutorial

 
Vintage Cameo Clipboard
 
 
Step 1.
 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.
 
 
Step 2
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.
 
 
Step 5
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.
 
 
 
Step 8
 
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.
