Life is Beachy…

The pallet sign is a really interesting piece in the kit and has so many possibilities. I was really dying to try out the Lindy’s Magical powder shakers and the new Prima paper paste so I came up with an idea.

Here is the pallet sign

Before we start adding colour its important to prime the surface so I gave it a coat in clear gesso and dried with a heat tool.

I then added the paper paste to the middle section of the sign. It has a very light density and hold texture very well so is well manipulated with a palette knife. You can achieve a similar effect with the sand past that is in your kit . Make sure any pastes are well dried before adding wet mediums.

Next I took 3 of the sandy coloured magicals and sprinkled them lightly over the surface of the pallet. I then spritzed with water.

I kept adding magicals until happy drying in between layers and then finished with some sprays of gold lame Heidi Swapp spray

I then took some of the same paste and mixed in some of the gold acrylic paint from the 1st kit. This was then used through the Kaisercraft net stencil that was in the kit to the corners of the pallet.

Next I began to add embellishments. I added some of the net from the kit using Prima 3d gloss gel. A piece was die cut from the prima sheet in the kit and one of the chipboard pieces was added as a title at the top.

I then added other items from the kit included the prima paper flowers, the rainbow resins and the metal anchor. Some of the gold paint was added to the edge of the shell die cut and touches of gold heidi spray and wiped over with a baby wipe,

A gold star was added to finish and touched of gold spray to the flowers. The gel on the net will dry clear. The piece is now finished.
