Mixed Medium With Shari Carroll: Pallet Brush
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!!
When SSS page loaded, and I saw your stunning piece, no kidding, my mouth just dropped. This art work is stunning Shari! The colours, flowers, hearts, and the background is so amazing! The brush just makes the whole thing! And to think the brush created all of this amazing inspiration! I hope you have a prominent place at home to display this amazing work of art!
