Teacher Dolphin Clipboard

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m lucky I actually know what day it is since I’ve been home and in Dallas three different times in the last week and it’s about a three hour drive each time. Anyways, since I’m on the verge of getting my teacher certification I decided to start some projects for my classroom. Let’s get started with my “Teacher Dolphin Clipboard…”

I also used my initials which I will talk about in a couple of weeks with another project I have finished.

Before painting I covered the clip part at the top with scotch tap to help keep any paint off. I used the acrylic paint color “Deep Sea” I purchased from Target along with the other paints. Once my board was dry Sunday morning, I got everything cut out on my Cricut Explore then got to work.

First, I carefully placed my bottom layer stencil dolphin on my clipboard and then used the “Dark Lapis” acrylic paint. I let it dry from about an hour like instructed and then apply another coat.

Once the bottom layer was dry, I carefully lifted it off my clipboard and then carefully placed my top layer stencil dolphin in place. With my top layer in place I then placed my initials in the middle more or less. Satisfied, I used the “Aqua” acrylic paint which as some shimmer in it. In order to get it dark enough, I applied three layers.
