Hi Roadies! It's Julia here with a mixed media project I created for Creativitation 2017. I love all the Maya Road wood pallets but this new 8x8 inch size is really wonderful with lots of space to create on. The wood can be left natural, stained, covered with paper or as I have done, layered on lots of mixed media layers.
To create this pallet I first started by coating them entire front the wood with Gesso. After allowing it to dry I then laid a dot patterned stencil over the pallet and applied some white texture paste through the stencil for added texture and interest. At the top of the design I adhered a gesso painted paint brush that I had mistakenly allowed to dry out. Rather than throw it away, I love how repurposing it here on the pallet adds a creative dimension to the design and gives it new life.
The rest of the design is comprised of a wonderful mix of Maya Road flowers and embellishments and a few vintage buttons. They are all adhered with a hot glue gun and then brushed with a small amount of gesso to add to the shabby look.
