Hermine's Challenge

Hermine issued a challenge to use a beautiful background piece she created in a piece of art. I printed out her background and it came out in an 8-1/2 x 11 size. I decided to use this full sheet to create this altered clipboard. I applied some gesso over it and, I admit, the background piece did lose some of its beautiful color.
This is the first time I played with some grungeboard as well. It was kind of large grungeboard so it worked well on this size.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with it.
