Wings on Wednesday – ‘FLY’ stretched canvas

Wings on Wednesday brings us ‘FLY’ – stretched canvas made by Steph Ackerman. She has played with not only Tattered Angels paints but used the mini Mixed Media Origins papers to build a 3D wing design on her stretched canvas. With the bright, summery tones, this is the perfect home decor piece to introduce some colour into your house.

Let’s see the behind-the-scenes of this gorgeous project!

‘I wanted to use the Mixed Origins papers and was excited to experiment with some new Tattered Angels paints. The paints worked amazingly well on the papers and the papers held their shape without buckling.’ – says Steph.

Spritz the untreated canvas with Plain Jane Baseboard in Lava. Use a paint brush to paint some Lava around the edges.

Paint Plain Jane Stained Glass Lemon around the wings.

Paint the wings with Pewter Glimmer Glaze.

Use your finger to paint Grey High Impact Paint around the panel. Adhere the whole sheet to the canvas.

Paint the 2nd set of wings with Rose Gold High Impact Paint. Once dry, paint on a layer of Twinkle Toes Glimmer Glam. Fussy cut the wings and gently form their shape over a pen.

Place glue on the bottom part of the wings and glue to the panel. Use foam adhesives to pop up the upper section of the wings.

Die-cut Mixed Media Origins paper and Black cardstock into oval shapes. Paint the smaller oval with Rose Gold High Impact Paint. Add stickers to spell fly. Place the ovals on wings with foam adhesives making a centre-piece.

This is a very effective and eye-catching little canvas and making the wings 3D is such a clever idea!
