Good afternoon, crafters! Juli Riedel here with you today. I love working with wood! Little 4×4 wood pallets are a fantastic base for the new TA Color Wash Paints! Since spring is right around the corner, a spring time project with the wonderful Architexture ephemera pieces was just the project to use them on! I like creating in groups of 3 or 4 in mixed media and all the products from CCB are the perfect size and color for making these fun mixed media projects! I plan on giving this project to my Mother for Mother’s Day!
Juli used the following for her project:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – It’s Orange, Dark Vintage Green, Vintage Pink
Tattered Angels Color Wash Paint – Green Tea, French Roast
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Light Gold, Aqua, Copper
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Cupcake
Architextures – Chicken Wire, Tarnished Fork and Spoon, Weathered Metal Rooster, Dress Form Model, Mason Jars
Woodgrain paper for flowers
Wood pallets 4×4
Starting with small wood pallets 4×4, pick what colors you want to use from the TA Color wash and TA High Impact Paint. Put a base coat down and dry with a heat tool. Then dry bush on either TA High Impact Paint or TA Glimmer Glam paint with glitter or TA Color Wash Paint.
I wanted to make woodgrain flowers, I used TA Glimmer Mists as watercolor. I painted the woodgrain paper with different colors and then dried with a heat too. I ran the paper through a die cut machine to get the flower cut outs. The wooden pallet used the new TA Colorwash paint in French Roast. Just a beautiful contrast that allows the woodgrain to show through!
The TA Glimmer Spray is wonderful to apply directly or as I did as a watercolor! I used Architextures Chicken Wire which sticks to the wooden pallet as does the Architectures Mason jars. Wonderful ephemera that is so easy to use and 3 dimensional! Giving dimension to your project!
This pallet used the TA-Glimmer Glam paint that leaves glitter on the surface! Just love it as it is translucent! Then I dry brushed on TA Colorwash Paint that was also translucent but gives good color! Architextures Ephemera with the Tarnished Fork and Spoon!!!
On this pallet, I used TA High Impact Paint in Copper and Aqua to match up to the Architextures Rooster. I put a base coat of copper on and then dry brushed the aqua color! The metallic rooster is one of my favorites from the Architexture ephemera line. Since this project was about wood grain, I sprayed some TA Glimmer Mist in Dragon Fly on the wood sisal. The color looks fantastic!
This project was very easy to put together!
The hardest part was choosing from all the wonderful TA paints and Architextures ephemeras!
Hope you like it! Have a great day!
