Create Art - Altered Wood Pallet

 Hi Friends, Happy Friday, hope your week has been awesome!

I have an altered wood piece to share with you today. This was a wooden heart that i picked up from Michaels and I am finally getting around to doing something with it. I had some discarded paint brushes i have been itching to use, I really wanted to do something with this wood pallet, so i designed this for my craft space.


Here is what my finished project looks like 


It started out like this



I really wanted the grain in the wood to show through so i made sure to maintain that texture on the finished project.

Here is a detail shot.


and a couple progress images for you

I attached all my metals and chipboard, added some ribbon and cheese cloth and let it dry


once dry i gave a coat of black gesso and let this dry


i then white washed everything with a coat of white gesso.  let this dry and went about adding some mists; waxes and sparks


and my finished project once again, i love how it turned out.

Michaels Wood Pallet
Finnabair Gesso; Gel Medium, Mechanicals; Paintbrushes
