1.          Start off by tracing the outline of the palette onto Gentle Leaves and cutting it out about 0.5 inches larger than your trace.  Apply a coat of Modge Podge to the surface of the palette and adhere the paper accordingly.  Allow to dry well before sanding off the edges

2.          Place your Jungle Flower stencil onto the palette and mist with Perfect Pearls Blue Smoke.  Use a heat gun to dry.  Then mist over the entire palette using Mister Huey’s Shine mist.  Set aside to dry

3.          Grab your title chippie – “Tranquil Harmony” and lightly paint it using your white acrylic paint.  Once dry, give it a spray of Perfect Pearls Blue Smoke.  Chalk the edges with blue chalk ink. Once dry, coat it with Glossy Accents and set aside to dry

4.          Ink your Flower Filligree chippie with blue and cut them out of the frame once dry

5.          Ink the larger filigree shape from your Ornamental Filligree chippie with dark brown Staz On and while still wet, apply white UTEE to the damp spots. Emboss

6.          Ink the smaller two filigree shapes from your Ornamental Filigree with brown chalk and while still wet, apply clear embossing powder.  Emboss

7.          Fussy cut some leaves from the Gentle Leaves page.  Stamp butterflies with brown Staz on, onto the Gentle Leaves page and fussy cut them out too. Chalk the edges with brown chalk ink

8.          Chalk the edges of some of your larger flowers with blue and mist all of them using Mister Huey’s Shine Color Mist,  set aside to dry

9.          Time to assemble!  Arrange your flower selection into three clusters and glue them down using the glue gun. Adhere the selection of ornamental filigree chippies, as well as the flower filigree chippie and the fussy cut leaves and butterflies around your flower clusters

10.       Mist your lace with Perfect Pearls Blue Smoke and Mister Huey’s Shine Colour Mist, dry with the heat gun and then apply to the edges of your palette

11.       Adhere your title chippie “Tranquil Harmony” to your larger flower cluster and then mist the entire piece with Mister Huey’s Shine Color Mist

12.       You’re done!
