Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape

Hello and happy Monday!  Jennifer on the blog today to share new Clear Scraps products!  I  created a fun home decor project using the Mouse Medium DIY Pallet Shape and Dream Big XL Script Wood Quote!

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!
