How to Add Dew Drops on a Mixed Media Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here. Today I’ll be sharing with you my first project of 2020, which is a lovely soft toned mixed media tag. The lovely neon pink dewdrops goes so well with the muted pink and gold background and add an interest to the project. I’ve been inspired by the beginning of a new year to add the sentiment ‘A new beginning’.

Here’s some closeup photos-

Live Like Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist

Hello, I am Suzette Hussey, a returning design team member from Kingston, Jamaica. Happy New Year to you! I am so happy to be sharing my ideas with you and I think a great way to start the new year is on a positive note. What a better way to do that than an art journal page? I chose the quote “Live like tomorrow doesn’t exist” which is a powerful quote and definitely gives you a push in the right direction.
I have included a supply list and step by step directions below.

Robins Nest Products

Other supplies:

Art Journal or paper. I used Bristol.
Art Anthology Colorations Sprays –  Siesta Key, Waimea Bay, and Sterling
Rubber stamps of your choice. I used Visible Image stamp set – Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist.
Versafine Black ink pad
ink sponge/make up sponge
Ranger Glossy Accents

Follow the steps below:

1) Begin by spraying the paper with spray ink, alternating colors until you get the look you want.
2) Dry with a heat gun or hairdryer.
3) When thoroughly dry, stamp your image.
4) Stamp a quote on a piece of Bristol paper.
5) Cut out the quote and arrange on your page along with the Dew Drops.
6) Use a sponge and black ink to add a shadow to the edge of each word.
7) Glue everything in place. Ranger Glossy Accents is great for sticking on Dew Drops.
8) To finish off, go around the edges of your page with the black ink and sponge adding a little extra to the bottom of the page.

How to Create Perfect Highlights with Dew Drops

Special moments and perfect pictures.  Sometimes you do not need a lot of product to create a meaningful and beautiful scrapbook page.

But you do want that “oomph” to make your page pop! And that’s when you reach for Dew Drops!

My niece recently got engaged, and I am documenting the road to her wedding day! This layout features her “Save the Date” card and a few engagement photo “out takes” I swiped off Facebook and made into a collage.



I am using the Poinsettia Dew Drop Mix and the Rhapsody Collection from Photo Play for this layout.



Dew Drops add dimension and sparkle to this layout

Design Notes:  machine stitching and the name tag (Beyoutiful) from the patterned paper are fun touches!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

Wishing that Spring would come with Dew Drops

Is anyone beside me thinking ahead to spring?  We’ve had a mild winter here in the Northwestern US.  I thought for today’s project, I would tackle a cute little bird house.  You can make this as small or as large as you wish.  The tear shaped dew drops make an awesome “tiled” roof, don’t they?

Ingredients:
Wooden Birdhouse – I used a small $1.00 size, but this could be made much bigger
Acrylic paint – pink and off white
Elmer’s School Glue
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops in Light Blue, Blue and Light Purple  Dew Drops Tear Drops (they look pink on the paint)
Vintage Lily of the Valley
Sheer Fuchsia Ribbon – 1 yard

First paint the birdhouse.  Paint with the base color.  I used pink (Hydrangea Pink).   Let the base coat dry.  Paint the entire house with Elmer’s School Glue and allow to dry until the surface is tacky.  Lightly paint over the glue with the off white paint (Antique White).  When it dries you have instant crackle paint.  Of course you could do this with you favorite crackle paint.  If you intend to use your birdhouse outside, you will need to finish your base surface to “weather proof it”.

Adhere the Dew Drops with an appropriate adhesive for the use.  I plan to use mine indoors so used Tacky Glue.  If you are using outdoors please use a water resistant glue.  Do one side of the roof at a time.  Keeping the roof as flat as possible (mine is propped up on a ribbon spool here).  This will keep the Dew Drops from sliding.  Let dry and do the other side.

 

Adhere the flowers to your house, keeping in mind whether it is to be used indoors or outdoors.  Finally add the ribbon.  Find the center of the ribbon and wrap it around the birdhouse, beginning at the front and ending with the ends in the front.  Tie a double knot tightly.  Wrap three lengths of ribbon loosely around your four fingers.  Pull off of fingers and twist in the middle.  Tie to the base wrap with another double knot.  Trim ends of ribbon used to wrap the base to the desired length.

 

Hope you are all having a blessed New Year and I’ll be back with some Valentine’s Day ideas on the 18th.

With my best wishes ~ Victoria
