"CREATE"-altered paint palette for Gina's Designs

hello my crafty and creative friends! I'm here today with an altered wooden paint palette that I got from Dollarama; I've seen seen some beautiful projects made using these and decided it would be fun to try one using some of the unique and interesting chipboard pieces from Gina's.

I primed the palette with gesso, then arranged  and attachedthe chipboard, corrugate, flowers, metal, paintbrush and stencilling with texture paste before adding a second coat of gesso.  I then painted the entire surface with metallic silver acrylic paint before using Twinkling H20s to create a rainbow of colour on my project.

Afterwards I added a few clusters of mica flakes for sheen and a bit of different texture. This was such a fun project to create, giving me a chance to mix and match all sorts of goodies, and I love the effect of the paints over the silver background! Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you have a wonderfully creative week!
