Welcome to the Krazy Krafting Crew's Monthly Blog Hop.
Michael works at the Delaware County Courthouse and he wanted a new desk set for his desk. Here is what I am using to make it for him.
These household items will be transformed into a paper clip holder, pen and pencil cup, clipboard and folder holder.
For my project today I started with the clipboard. I used the clear acrylic clipboard above and lots of patterned paper. I started by choosing my backbround papers I didn't like the back of my front one so I chose a different one for the back.
I traced the clipboard to get the shape and glued them back to back. Next I selected lots of different scraps and papers in blues and greys as those are the colors of his office. I wanted a border so I measured and marked the area on the front sheet that I wanted to collage in. I cut various straight shapes and inked all the edges and arranged them in that marked off area. Finally I used spray adhesive and attached it to the back of the clipboard so that he will still have a smooth writing surface on the acrylic top.
And finally here it is:
It's hard to get a really good view of the patterns because of the light catching on the acrylic but they are all more vibrant like they appear on the bottom of the photo.
