Tutorial : Doodled Goal List

Hot dogs' anyone?

Hello all living breathing thing, I've recently got inspired by Pinterest to make a really awesome goal list! Best yet, you can doodle it anyhow you like and add any goals you want and change it. Let's begin!

What you need :
1. Clipboard
2. Masking Tape
(I used cellophane tape, but masking tape would work much better)
3. Eraser
4. White Spray Paint
5. Permanent Markers
6. Sticky Notes
7. Newspaper/Recycled Paper
 First of all, get your chipboard and use masking tape to cover the clip on the very top.
Make sure you cover throughout. What I did was I covered the base, then wrapped the entire top with the tape as well. Make sure there are no holes around. If you need help, find a ruler to assist you and press down all the holes.
 Place it on newspaper/recycled paper outside. (Preferably AWAY from the grass. Those bugs are 'blind' and keeps flying into the wet spray paint if you do it on/near the grass)

You can do so however if you want bugs on your clipboard goal list (eww).
 I used a white Anchor Spray Paint. You can get yours from your local hardware store. Feel free to go crazy with your own favourite colours.
 Spray furthur to cover more area, but go a couple of layers to cover entirely.
If you are too near, the paint would appear too damp.
 As you can see, the tape protected the metal clip from changing to white.
 Bend down and spray along the sides as well. (Be sure there are tape covering where it's needed)
If you skipped this step, there's bound to be a little line on the bottom edge of the original colour. Leave it to dry.
 When everything is dry, peel off the tape. Cellophane tape leaves more sticky residue while masking tape doesn't. I lack masking tape at home and was pretty lazy to go out and get 'em.
If that's the case and sticky residues stayed on the metal, put your eraser into good use!
Keep going back and forth erasing all the residues. It might take a while, but it works.
 Next, you would want to visualize how your board would look like in your mind.
I had four big boxes for goals and the very top tells me when it needs to be done by. I simply take a sticky note in the size that I want and draw around it. You need not have it entirely square, you can do squiggles, circles, basically anything! Let your creative juices flow!
 This is what I came up with.
 Used my black sharpie permanent marker for writing and drawing everything.
I also bought a CD permanent marker for drawing thinner details.
"Goal List for : _____"
 I drew with the CD marker and realize it's too light. I then drew over with the sharpie marker.
 Keep doodling anyhow you want.
I'm making this as a gift for a friend - Ethan as he will be leaving to further his studies real soon, and included his name into the doodle. It gives a more personalized feel to the goal list.
 This is how the goal list looks so far. I've added in the sticky notes with some short messages and drawings.
 The full picture of the 'Goal List'. I quite enjoy it's simplicity of black, white and a touch of orange. What about you?
Here's a closer look at the sticky note messages and drawings.
1. Learn to cook
2. Shopping
3. Hunt down your friends (basically hanging out with them, not literally hunting)
4. Play futsal

and that is all! I plan to make my very own one as wel. Just got a little lazy to do it at the moment.
