Rare Oddities Graphic 45 mini MDF pallet art - Day 97 of my 366 day challenge


Rare Oddities Graphic 45 mini MDF pallet art - 
Day 97 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I have tried to something different today and so have used papers from the fabulous Graphic 45 "Rare Oddities" collection and a mini MDF pallet set from Stamps Away.


Rare Oddities Graphic 45 mini MDF pallet artI first of all glued the 4 panels (each measure 5x20cm approximately) together using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue at different heights and left them to dry

I used black Pebeo Acrylic Gesso paint to cover them and gave them a couple of coats allowing them to dry in between. (I left it overnight just to make sure!).

I really love Graphic 45 and thought that one of the "Rare Oddities" images in the 12" x 12" paper pad would work really well as I can cut it to fit each of the panels. So I cut each out making sure that they fitted each panel and glued them to each using Cosmic Shimmer. I also cut 3 narrow strips of the checked paper (which is the reverse of the main images) and stuck them either side of the 2 main panels.

Once I knew it was all dry, I then varnished it using the Pure Adhesive Matt from Forever Moments (Tonic Studios) which is a craft adhesive and multi-layer sealer and again let it dry.
