Rare Oddities Graphic 45 mini MDF pallet art -
Day 97 of my 366 day challenge
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.
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.
I attached a small metal skull embellishment to the centre panel and some Hessian "ribbon" so it can be hung up.
And there you are a striking gift that is slightly different..you can buy it on my website here
