The Emerald Wing by Katie Lamb

Hello wonderful crafter's

We have another stunning project to share, I am using the royal "we", I didn't lift a finger lol:) 

The  canvas Katie has created is not short on texture and details. You know when the team send me their projects its fun to spot the products we sell to see how they have been used, and I love how Katie has layered the MDF large wheel and small roman clock, and can you spot the zip?

The multi-tonal greens work so well together because of the way they have been blended together when Katie has applied them

All the products used on this project are linked at the end of the blog.

Take a blank canvas,Jules is now selling a variety of sizes on the website, and glue down your wooden shapes, zip and cogs.

Once you have added all the pieces, give the whole canvas a couple coats of black gesso. This is so the lustre will stand out so much more later.

Paint the pair of large resin wings in black gesso and glue in place on the canvas.

Paint everything with light green metallic lustre and then dry brush with dark green metallic lustre.

Using the Prima heavy gel medium add to different areas on the canvas and sprinkle on the  Pearl Art balls, poly balls and glass glitter. 

Add in a few green dew drops too. 

Use the large steampunk key to finish the canvas. 

Thanks Katie :)
