Mixed Medium With Shari Carroll: Pallet Brush

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Happy Wednesday!! I have some inspiration for you today using a unique base for my mixed medium project. I have been looking at this Paper Fashion Paint Pallets and decided to take the plunge to turn it into a treasured display piece. I had an old paintbrush that I wanted to use which started this whole idea rolling.

I covered the pallet with gesso, added a die-cut heart, torn papers, crackle paste, and used the Rose Bouquet stencil with frosty paste to build up layers. In this project, I use Glazing medium to help get the paint into the valleys of the crackle paste. It gives you time to wipe off the paint sitting on the top.

I used Art Stones to frame the heart so it would stand out more and used a wash of paint to give them a hint of color. To finish the piece, I added flowers that match the papers.

I hope I’ve given you the inspiration to try a project on a not so obvious surface for a unique piece to treasure. Enjoy!!
