I began by painting my pallet with chalk paint in black. Chalk paint works beautifully on the birch wood and a little goes a long way!
I also used chalk paint on my XL Script Wood Quote but this time in red! I set it aside to dry to work on decorating my pallet shape.
Using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I adhered a strip of patterned paper to the center slat of the pallet. Anything solvent based is what you want to use with the wood or acrylic Clear Scraps products!
I then flipped over my pallet and used an x-acto knife to remove my excess paper. Also going around the edges with a sanding tool is recommended.
I wanted to add a bit more background to my pallet behind the XL Script Wood Quote! Using the 4x6 Star Stencil and modeling creme, I applied a layer to the top and bottom slats of the pallet.
Here is the end result of the stencil + modeling creme. You can see its not perfect but that's ok! I then adhered my Dream Big XL Script Wood Quote to the center of the pallet (again using my Beacon adhesive).
Lastly, I added some small embellishments from the collection I used. I felt like if I added too many my pallet would be too busy. I did use a hole punch at the top of the ears to add some seam binding to hang my pallet!
