Altered Artist Paint Palette

Good Morning you lovely Crafter's
Hope all is well in your Crafting World.

Today is the start of a new Challenge over at That Craft Place

Theme is Alter Something.

I bought this Grey Board Artist Palette from That Craft Place Ltd

I only wanted the word "Art" & some extra Splats so Lisa the owner from That Craft Place Ltd was happy to cut just that for me as this is her own design & will cut just about anything you want.     

I started by sealing the grey board with Gesso.
Next i applied texture paste through stencils and left to dry.
Once dry i used my Deco Art Spray Paints.

But guess what i wasn't happy with it so i left it for a few weeks & came back to it with a new idea!!

I painted it all Black & Sprayed a little Dylusions Sprays in green & pink. 
This time i like it so i continued!! lol

Next i applied acrylic paints in various colours by dry brushing it over the texture parts.
Next i used Alt Gold in similar colours to the paint, i applied this with my finger so it didn't go onto the other colours. Then buffed it with a cloth to make it shimmer & shine.

Next it was time to add Embellishments

I also used the Grey Board Paintbrushes from TCP

  Here it is all finished

Here's a few close ups of the texture & embellishments 

Hope i haven't bore you too much with all the photo's.
