Hey Roadies! It's Jill, and I'm sharing my wood pallet created for the Maya Road booth at Creativision (CHA). This was my very first project of this kind, and I found that making this altered art/mixed media pallet was super easy using all the Maya Road goodies!
I started by doing a few coats of white acrylic paint on my pallet, letting it dry completely between coats. Next, I used embossing ink and white embossing powder to alter all the metal embellishments. If you do this, please be careful! Those metal trinkets get super hot! I used Ken Oliver Vintage Mini Keys, Ken Oliver Vintage Crafting Tools, Ken Oliver Vintage Bulbs and Keys, Mini Safety Pins and White Vintage Crafting Tassels for the element along the top of my pallet.
The next section of my pallet showcases the gorgeous Geometric Feather Die. Feathers are an all-time favorite icon to use on my layouts and projects, so I had to include it on this pallet. I used my sewing machine to stitch down the center of each feather, then adhered these to the pallet using a multi-medium matte glue.
Adding a photo (taken by my friend Tracy and printed on Instax) was the last step, clipping it to the pallet with a Bulldog Clip, also embossed in white. To embellish this area I added one of the Classic Wood Tokens painted with a thin layer of white paint.
I added some splatters of watercolor paints to the pallet to break up the white and tie in the other colors used.
Thanks for checking out my first wood pallet project! Have a beautiful day :)
