Create a noteworthy mini clipboard with Americana® Multi-Surface Acrylics.


    • water container
    • paper towels
    • scissors
    • ruler
    • E6000 glue
    • pencil
    • #3 round brush
    • 1/2" flat brush
    • 1/4" flat brush
    • assorted buttons
    • wet sponge
    • assorted scrapbook paper
    • mini clipboard



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Paint the background of the clipboard with Blue Lagoon and the 1/4" flat brush.
    2. Paint the silver clip of the clipboard with Flamingo and the #3 round brush.
    3. Glue the buttons on with E6000 glue.
    4. Using the ruler and pencil, cut out a piece of scrapbook paper 1/4" smaller than the clipboard background to be placed under the clip hardware.
    5. Wet the paper with a sponge and apply Matte Decou-Page to the clipboard and back of the scrapbook paper with the 1/2" flat brush. Stick the scrapbook paper down and smooth out bubbles. Topcoat with Decou-Page, but not right under the clip. (It will stick to the paper.)
    6. Add details with scrapbook paper. (I added a scallop and wavy line.) Cut shapes and decoupage down with Decou-Page and the #3 round brush.
    7. Place a pad of paper on the clipboard.
