Altered Notebook and Clipboard

Anytime you need a special gift for a friend, it's always best to have those little notebooks or clipboards at hand. It's so easy to alter as long as you have your DSPs. This time I used the new DSP, Springtime Vintage #121782. It's so sweet and pretty as it looks in the catalogue.

I've also added an antique brad on the notebook just to put a little touch to it. You may also add on a strap so you can sling it on the brad to bind your notebook close :) The stamp I used is the NEW "Four Frames" stamp set #123442 -Clear. I love this set, it'll be used in my upcoming projects.

I've seen alot of tutorial's out there using the Mod Podge technique for sealing your clipboard. I didn't do it this time. I can always use the mod podge finish later.
The green on top of my clipboard was painted with acrylic paint using a foam brush.
They're very inexpensive in a craft store. I used green paint to give a little highlight on the greenery of my DSP which was cut in in 3 parts and reversed in the middle. Adorable.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!
