Mixed Media Altered Artist Palette

Hey all, welcome to another post for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd. Today I have a project that has been on my Pinterest to-do list for quite some time. I first saw these altered artist palettes one night whilst merrily pinning away (as you do) and I have been dying to get my hands dirty with one. I tracked down some palettes and this is what I created.

I first gave my palette two generous coats of white gesso on both sides and then messed about with a heap of metal filligrees, charms, cogs, resin pieces, metal flowers, resin flowers and a fabric doily. I played around with the direction and layereing before finally settling on the landscape orientation and the embellie cluster you see below. Then I took heaps of pics, because, I don't know about you, but once I move them, I am darned if I can ever remember the exact layout I had going.
