August 2023 Mood Board - Scrapbooking & Mixed Media Kit Combo!

Hey, y’all! I hope your August has been going well. Have you had a chance to check out the mood board challenge yet? This week I have a couple of mixed media projects for you that I created for my mood board inspired project! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to a canvas or a clipboard, so I did both!

Be sure to check out my video to see how they came together!



August 2023 Mood Board:



There aren’t really a lot of details needed to describe the process for my projects – it’s mostly a lot of layering and adhering!

I added black gesso to my clipboard along the edges, the clip, and the back, but since I was wrapping the patterned paper around the canvas, it didn’t need any gesso.


I used a 3”x9” canvas, and after deciding which paper I wanted to use, I cut a 4”x10” section out – keeping the printed flower cluster I had planned to focus on to the top right of the canvas. Since I didn’t want to wrap the flower cluster around the edge of the canvas, that led me to cut a couple of strips of the glittery half-sheet to use as my edge wraps for the top and right edges.

I used the Champagne Stardust Butter to accent the edges of the canvas and coated the surface with the same matte medium I used to glue the paper to the canvas. After the matte medium had dried, I added some of the Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist from the Mixed Media Kit to grunge my background up a bit, then gave everything a spray of Workable Fixatif.


I coated the die-cut and fussy-cut flowers and leaves I wanted to use with more of the Champagne Stardust Butter, separated the leaves and some of the flower petals so I could give the die-cuts a bit more shape as I was putting everything together, then grabbed up my jar of 3D Matte Gel and started the assembly process.


I used more 3D Matte Gel to attach the Prima flowers, gave them a light coat of matte varnish to help protect them, then brushed on a bit of both Stardust Butters just to blend them in a little with the background.

My final addition was to brush on some art stones and Mini Art Stones using Soft Matte Gel and to attach the sentiment/quote.



The process for the clipboard wasn’t very different from the canvas. I didn’t wrap the patterned paper around the clipboard – instead, I distressed the edges, added a few tears and curls, and backed those tears with pieces of the same glittery paper I used to wrap the top and right edge of the canvas.

I used the Marcasite Stardust Butter on the clipboard’s background – covering the clip and the underside of the curled tears, as well as adding it to the corners and edges – but the rest of the assembly was the same process.


The main reason I decided to create both the canvas and the clipboard was that they weren’t going to be vastly different projects, and since they were both smaller, I could very easily work on them side-by-side!
