At a Glance:
This project features these great brands:
Base coat your wooden plaque in light blue and allow to dry
Using Light Lavender; Rosette Pink, Baby Pink, Daybreak, and Minted Aqua, create a blended rainbow from the bottom toward the middle of your plaque. You can use paint brushes or sponges to blend.
Using your sponges create 3 clouds using Wicker White.
Remove the small screw from your Mini Clipboard Frame and place the clip to the side. Lightly paint your clipboard with Wicker White. For a more aged look, wipe off some of the paint with a paper towel. Allow to dry and screw the clip back onto the board.
Using Mod Podge, glue down your clipboard to your plaque (see picture for placement).
Paint the front of your letters (G, R, A, D, E) with Baby Pink. Add a second coat if needed.
Using Mod Podge, glue your letters down next to your clipboard to create the word “Grade”
Allow to dry and finish off with a post-it note that refers to the child's grade!
