Dew Drop Faberge Egg

Hello, on the Robin’s Nest blog today with Dew Drop Fabrege Bunny Egg!

I have to apologize, I didn’t take process pictures but I will do my best to describe what I did to the egg. Here’s a sneak peek of the finished project!

First of all, the egg is brown kraft so use white gesso over the entire egg and let dry. Then use blue acrylic paint as a first layer on the egg. I then used another blue with some metallic shine daubing it over the entire piece. I wanted the first layer of blue to show through so that is why the second layer is daubed over the piece. Make sure to let this dry completely before moving on to the next step.
After the egg is dry, using a bunny image from Gecko Galz, I cut it into an oval shape and glued it down onto the egg. I did make a few cuts along the edges to make the shape lay down better on the rounded surface. Let this stage dry.
I then used yellow acrylic paint and a small stencil I made from cardboard and painted small dots all over the egg. When this layer was dry, I took my black sharpie marker and made scribble lines around each dot.
I then used the Lily Pad Dew Drops around the edge of the oval bunnies and the yellow dewdrops from the Flame Dew Drops in the dots. I now have my very own Dew Drop Fabriage Egg!
Can’t wait to see what you make with your dew drops! Stop by soon. XOXO Kelly

Watercolor and Dew Drops

I have been playing with watercolor a lot lately. Its unpredictability is both nerve-wracking and rewarding and I have found the simplest of marks make the most beautiful designs. Take for instance this project; I began with three splotches of paint and look at what it became!
You too can easily learn to do this. Simply follow the tutorial below.

Robins Nest products used:

Goldenberry Dew Drops 

Other supplies used:

watercolor paper
Ecoline Brush Pens (any watercolor ink or paints will work)
  • Turquoise Blue
  • Deep Green
  • Deep Yellow
  • Green
watercolor brushes
water
craft mat or palette
paper towel
pencil
waterproof pen such as Micron
the adhesive (I used Nuvo Embellishment Glue)
black ink pad and sponge
quote or sentiment

Step 1

Place a little watercolor ink on a craft mat by scribbling. Using a very wet brush pick up some watercolor paint/ink and create 3 splotches on your paper.

Step 2

Use a paper towel or soft cloth to remove any excess. Allow to dry.

Step 3

Fill in the sky and the grass area with your watercolor paint. Allow to dry.

Step 4

Use a pencil to draw the branches and tree trunk. If you are comfortable drawing with the pen you can skip this step.

Step 5

Now go over with your pen.

Step 6

Place dabs of glue where you will place your Dew Drops. This is a very intuitive process.

Step 7

Now stick your Dew Drops in place.

Step 8

Use a sponge and black ink to go around the edges of the paper to add a shadow paying particular attention to the base and add a quote if you like.

 

That’s it!

How to Enhance Photos with Sensational Dimension

Ahoy Crafters,
All parrots and robins are welcome to come aboard ship and learn how to enhance photo. It’s simple and so much fun to create sensational dimension with Dew Drops. By adding Dew Drops to the subjects clothes you make the photos pop. I accentuated the buttons on their clothes but you could also add Dew Drops to replace jewelry like necklaces or earrings. Arrrghh! We be off to meet the cutest little pirates you will ever see. I hope you enjoy my Pirate Family Layout!


Supplies:
Goldenberry Dew Drops

Metallic Gold Dew Drops

Directions:
1. Apply a 4″ wide strip of black patterned paper down the left side.
2. To add realistic detail, use a craft knife to carefully slice the photo along the edge of a hat and then insert the tip of a feather into the slit.  Matte the 8×10″ photo with gold mirror card and trim to leave a narrow border.
3.  Adhere the photo slightly off center to the right.  Apply adhesive in the center of the photo and not along the edges so that you can tuck other embellishments underneath the photo later.

 

4. Create an embellishment cluster for the lower left corner. Slide the bracket under the edge of the photo and add a feather.  Next, attach an eye patch across the lower edge of the photo and add a pirate hat to the upper right corner to look as though it is hanging on the edge.

 

5.  Color the chipboard pieces.  Use brown ink to paint the ship’s wheel and add shading with a black colored pencil.  Paint the chain with silver acrylic paint. Add shading with black and highlight with a white gel pen to create the appearance of dimension.  Apply gold ink directly to the chipboard word and set aside to dry.


6.  Adhere the chipboard to the layout with liquid adhesive.  Stamp a skull & bones pirate flag with black ink onto white card stock.  Carefully cut it out and adhere it to the lower right corner overlapping the photo.

 

7.  Embellish the layout with a compass and an anchor.  Next, carefully slide some gold coins under the edge of the photo and layer them among other embellishments.

 

8. Adhere gold Dew Drops directly onto the photo to replace buttons on the subjects costume.  (Mom has 4 on her dress & 1 on her hat. Whereas, Dad has them on his cuffs.)  Lastly, adhere a small scattering of gold Dew Drops like confetti along the edges.

Other Supplies:

photo (8×10″)
Paper: patterned scrapbook paper, gold mirror card stock, black & white card stock
Ink & Paint: silver acrylic paint, gold ink pad, Distress Ink (Vintage Photo, Black Soot)
Embellishments: chipboard, white feathers, flag, compass, eye-patch, gold coins, anchor
Tools: ink blending tool, craft knife, liquid adhesive, paint-brush, white gel pen

How to Make Easy Mosaic Magic with Dew Drops Creative Canvas

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing some mosaic magic with the “Artsy Rose” Creative Dew Drop Canvas.

I have become completely enamored of the Creative Canvas kits from the Robins’s Nest – – there are so many ways to use them and the process is relaxing, creative bliss!

There are so many different looks that can be achieved – my project definitely has a mosaic vibe – and it was as easy as doing a paint-by-number!

Kits come with a pre-printed canvas, a supply of Dew Drops and an inspiration pic!

There are many ways to apply Dew Drops, just dot some glue on your canvas and add the Dew Drop!

My go-to for applying a LOT of Dew Drops is Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect – gently pick up and place Dew Drops – so easy and fast!

 

 

Designer Tip #1:  Use a Fine Tip Sharpie to outline the canvas design – helps anchor and define your piece

Designer Tip #2:  Use ALL of the different shapes and sizes to give your piece dimension and texture – experiment!

I did add some ink and paint to the canvas…
But I am still undecided how this piece will end up… I have 2 ideas:
-Fussy cut rose, add to a mixed media canvas with quote from Beauty and the Beast (Beauty is Found Within or Until the Last Petal Falls)
-Fussy cut rose and add to a card for Mother’s day – I think this would make a SPECTACULAR card!
So if you have read this far, I am going to let YOU decide how I should use this rose!  Leave a comment…..
Choose 1 of my 2 options – – or tell me how YOU would use it!  Someone will receive a Dew Drop RAK direct from my stash!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

Making a Steam Punk Tag with Dew Drops

Let’s make a Steam Punk Tag using mixed media techniques, Dew Drops, paper and cogs.  First of all, lets look at what you’ll need.
 

 

 

 

Ingredients:
 
#5 Manila Tag
Walnut Ink, mixed in water in a large spaghetti sauce container
Paper Towels
Brusho Watercolor powders in lemon, orange and dark brown
Distress Collage Medium by Ranger in Crazing
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Stamps – Faded Type
Stayz on Ink – Black Onyx
Round punch – one inch
Vintage Paper – mine is from the late 1800s
Lazer Cutz Cogs by Mike Deakin Art
Distress Crayon Ranger Tim Holtz – Vintage Photo
Archival Seeds in Honey Passion
Let’s Begin:
 
1. Get a plain #5 Manila Tag and crumple it up.  Mix walnut ink crystals in a spaghetti sauce glass jar and warm water.  When mixed, drop the crumpled tag into it.  Leave to soak over night or 24 hours.
 
 
2.  Take Brusho water color powders in dark brown, orange and lemon yellow.  Sprinkle small amounts on tag and spritz with water.  The watercolors will spread.  If you like it, leave it, otherwise add some more and spritz again.  Let dry overnight.
3.  Once dry, paint with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing.  Let dry until crackled.

4.  Stamp randomly with the stamp of your choice, I used the new Stampers Anonymous  Tim Holtz Faded Type stamps with black onyx ink.

5.  Punch one inch circles from vintage paper, and adhere to tag.
6.  Add Lazer Cutz to the tag.
7. Embellish tag and circles with Distress Crayon, I used vintage photo.  Blend with your fingers or cotton swab.
8. Embellish with Archival Seeds and Mini Dew Drops using liquid adhesive.

9.  Let dry and enjoy!
