Other Supplies


  1. Using a 1” brush, basecoat 3 clipboards using the Bermuda, Lemon Peel and Steel. Let dry.
  2. On a plate, mix each of the colors with Snow White using a 1:1 ratio.
  3. Using a ½” stencil brush, stencil the Tear Drop stencil across the middle of the clip boards using the lighter version of the base-coated color. Let dry.
  4. Using scissors cut out 3 pieces of Waverly Inspirations Bloom Lagoon fabric that are slightly larger than the size of your clipboards. Use the clipboards as a template when measuring.
  5. Using a 1” brush, apply Mod Podge Fabric to one of the bare clipboard, ignoring the metal parts. Lay the cut piece of fabric onto the clipboard and smooth into place. Let dry.
  6. Using a craft knife, trim the excess fabric from the clipboards.
  7. Repeat this for the last two clipboards.
