Foam Board is an interesting product for the mixed media artist to utilize. It is strong and lightweight, which makes it an interesting surface to work on. I decided to create two different projects: the first is a layered "clipboard" using shredded paper and a piece of black cloth that had been previously mono printed on a gelli plate.
Using a box cutter (or exacto knife) cut the foam cor to the desired size
I spread Yes! glue over the surface..
then scattered shredded paper over the glue
I used a piece of parchment paper to press the shredded paper onto the surface to assure good contact.
While the paper was drying, I glued my fabric onto the surface of a smaller cut of Foam Board.
I wrapped the fabric around to the back and glued into place.
Once dry, I used Tacky Glue applied to the back of the small Foam Board panel
and seated the wrapped panel onto the center of the larger panel.
Using my Havel's 5.5 inch teflon-coated scissors I trimmed
any shredded paper that was hanging over the edge of the Foam Board.
Finally, I glued this funky "alligator" clip to the surface.
The result is a funky note-holder that can be hung on the wall!
Next, I cut a piece of Foam Board to be just larger than a stenciled birthday card
(using the Stencil Girl cupcake sprinkles stencil)
and glued it into place.
On the back of the Foam Board, in the top center, I pressed a pop top from an aluminum can
into the foam to leave an indent. Then, I glued it into place.
