Have you visited the Paint-It party happening right now?! Well I’m here to show you MY paint project for this week! Now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’m already moving into Easter and spring mode. It’s never too early to start, right? I’m secretly hoping that the more spring projects I do, the faster spring will come :)
I really liked how my Valentine’s Day Pallet Art turned out, so I thought I would make another version for Easter! So here is my Easter Pallet Art Using Wood Shims.
This may shock some of you, but besides Christmas, I’m actually not a big holiday decorator. If I do anything at all, I like to keep it subtle and simple. So that’s where my little bunny silhouette comes in. This little piece just might be the inspiration I need to put together a spring/Easter vignette this year :)
- Pack of Wood Shims
- Wood Glue
- Gray/blue paint (I used a can a paint I bought from the Lowes reject section, so I have NO idea what the color is)
- DecoArt Americana Light Buttermilk Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brush
- Bunny Silhouette ( I used my Silhouette to cut mine)
I used the same technique as my Valentine’s Day Art (pictured above). But this time I chose place the shims in the opposite direction for a little variation.
Next, after shims were dry, I gave it a coat of a light gray paint that has a hint of blue in it. I picked up a quart of it from the Lowes reject section for $2.75. I knew I would use it at some point! Then, I cut out a bunny silhouette using this graphic on my Silhouette and traced it onto my pallet.
To finish things off, I painted the bunny in a Light Buttermilk from DecoArt’s Americana line.
If you have a paint project to share (new or old) hop on over to the party happening right now!
