Have you been enjoying this month’；s matchup with Relic &； Artifacts？？ Today you won’；t be disappointed either. Crew Member Marie Johansson had so much fun she created 3 projects. Today she will be sharing Winged Spike and the Little Kid.
This collaboration really got my creative nerve going and today I present two of my three projects created for the Relics &； Artifacts/Canvas Corp Brands Matchup. I was sent the Rising Spirit III resin set and a kit with mixed products from all 3 brands under the Canvas Corp Brands umbrella. This first project is a 3×；3 Canvas Corp Stretched Natural Canvas that I covered with High Impact Paint， Glimmer Mist &； splatters of Glimmer Glam. ？I applied the Turquoise paint randomly with a brush then I dribbled the Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist. After drying I splattered on the shimmering Bon Bon Glimmer Glam to create a sparkly effect.valentines day gifts for him
The little resin figure from the Relics &； Artifacts Set was painted with Glimmer Glaze in the shade Icicle (the color is really similar to the original resin color but bring a great shine to the piece that make it look like marble). I fussy cut out a butterfly from the Butterflies on Ivory paper and painted it with the same paint &； mist as the canvas. ？Next， I stuck it to the piece of burlap that came in my kit. After cutting around the butterflyaccent pillow case baby canvas housewarming gift， I added it on top of the canvas. Lastly， I applied the little figurine on top.？

I have done similar projects like this one before， but never used resin on them –； so when I found the wings in my setI knew that I wanted to give it a try!
First of all， I painted my spike with the Turquoise High Impact Paint. Since the coverage is great so I could go with just one coat.After drying， I added the wire wings and painted the overlapping wires with more High Impact Paint. Adding the resin wings was a bit tricky.I used melt glue and then a really？fine wire to secure them.
Now came my problem –； the melted glue and the wire did not look especially nice on the center of the piece. I came up with the idea to cover it with micro beads painted with Glimmer Glam. I love the effect –； I almost looks like dirt…； To add more dimension I added two pieces of 7gypsies metal from my stash. I also highlighted the details on the resin wings with Glimmer Glam.？
