INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint the clipboards Cotton Ball.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint one clipboard Chick, one Melonball, and one Buff Beige. Allow to dry and apply a second coat.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Once dry, select a pattern for each clipboard from the set of DecoArt Personally Yours Stencils. (We used Between the Lines - Solid). Center the stencil and using a cosmetic sponge, dab the paint lightly over the stencil. Use Apple Green for the Melonball clipboard, School Bus for the Chick clipboard, and Shrimp for the Buff Beige clipboard. Allow to dry.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using the pattern, paint the words "daily", "weekly", and "monthly" to the bottoms of the clipboards--one each--in Muted Gold. (For this project, the Melonball clipboard says "daily", the Chick clipboard says "Weekly", and the Buff Beige clipboard says "Monthly".) Let dry.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Once dry, free-hand painterly flowers around the edges of the clipboards. Feel free to paint other embellishments, as desired.
    Step 4 Example
  6. To create a dry-erase feature, cut out three sheets from a piece of sheet protector to fit the surface of the clipboards.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Clip the sheet and use a dry-erase marker to make notes. Use for date reminders, to-do lists, or shopping lists.
