Altered Clipboard

Treasure Art Trends is hosting an Altered Clipboard swap. This was a first for me. After a trip to the thrift store to purchase a clipboard, I painted it with gesso and then painted with green paint. I decided to incorporate a quilt block into the clipboard. It is a traditional nine patch with the addition of pen stitching, rickrack and Scrabble letters. The paper is by Crate. Last I added torn fabric strips from my stash. I was so pleased with the results that I shopped for another clipboard today and plan to make one for my studio in green and pink.
