These Wings An Art Shrine by Lynne Moncrieff



This week I am sharing an Art Shrine.  I might find myself not working with one of the Art Shrines for a while but rest assured, I always return to them.  They are such a fabulous surface to work with.

Sorry, I have no stepped out photos for this project because it was made, working from my lap as I sat in the lounge in the evening but I do have detail photos to share.

First, I assembled the shrine. If you are new to the Art Shrines, they are so easy to assemble. Once that was prepared, I applied the Ivory paint.  Following the instructions for working with the Crackle Glaze, I applied the Glaze followed with Chestnut Brown.

For the greyboard large wings, I swapped the paints around, applying the Chestnut Brown first with Ivory applied after the Crackle Glaze.

I then stained two tags with the Flat Matte sprays, soaking it with Walnut spray, allowing to almost dry before spraying Redwood.

One tag was placed inside the shrine before adhering the prepared wings. To the centre of the wings, a smaller stained tag with the stamped up Affirmation, cut into strips.

I slightly curved the wings prior to adhering to the shrine.

The crackles are so easy to achieve with the Crackle Glaze.

The finishing touches were pieces of corrugated cardboard from the Mixed Media Paper/Card Kit, soaking with Flat Matte Spray Walnut, allowing to dry before swiping with Ivory.

Adhere pieces to top and bottom of Shrine and for the top piece, topping with piece of twig.  For bottom piece, adhere button.
