Flying Unicorn Mixed Passion - Palette

The Flying Unicorn Mixed Passion Add On always includes a canvas along with an assortment of mixed media goodies. This month's kit also includes a wooden painter's palette and set of paintbrushes. I love the look of altered, paint-splattered palettes, but wanted to give mine a spin on that theme - a Tuscan colour palette (one of my absolute favourite colour combinations).

I started by spraying my background in various shades of yellow and orange. Once it was dry, I added stencilling with gel medium through a 12x12 stencil to preserve some of the lighter background colours. I then added stencilling through a 6x6 stencil of the same colour with Shimmerz Dazzlerz for a pop of colour. Some dribbled Silks, darker sprays, splattered Inklingz and Texturez through the 6x6 stencil from the kit finished off the background.

I wanted my paintbrushes to look used, but to not be so covered in medium that they blended into the background, so I sprayed them with some green mist and added some chalk ink.

This cute little wooden bird was in the Small Passion, Big Art kit this month. I coloured him black using chalk ink, then added in the highlights with a white Sharpie. Curling the trailing edge of my Prima vine gave both the bird and the paintbrushes a nice place to rest.

I finished it off with a Prima IOD paintable card from the kit which I coloured with Prima Chalk Edgers and a wet paintbrush.
