Damask Divas Buzz and Bumble Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring the Buzz and Bumble paperpack!  If you came here from Cydney's blog you are in the right place.  If you happened to just hop here by chance, please visit our team blog to see the complete list of participants.

This month, I chose to make a project that I can use every day! (well, at least 5 days/week).  I carry a clipboard at work and was getting a little bored with the one I had so I came up with this one.  It was fun, quick, and easy to put together.



I used the following products: the Buzz and Bumble WOTG Scrapbooking Kit, glitter paper in brown/tan, Bohemian alphabet stamp set(found in the previous Idea Book), Distressed Backgrounds stamp set, Exclusive inks in Sunset and Chocolate, Copic markers cream YR21 & sanguine YR18 (used those to color the large flowers on the back of the clipboard), Liquid Glass, and Mod Podge (I used the gloss-lustre finish).

For the back I just tore random pieces and glued them in place with Mod Podge to make the background.  I also used the Mod Podge to glue everything else in place, with the exception of the "wax" seal embellishment and the jewels on the small flowers on the back....I used Liquid Glass to adhere those. Then I just applied two additional thin coats of Mod Podge on the whole thing (letting them dry in between) and it's ready to go!!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my project and all of the other great projects in this Blog Hop.  We all hope you can find some inspiration!!
