A Butterfly Tag

Hello, I hope you are keeping safe and making use of your time at home. To help keep you busy I have a cute tutorial for you using Dew Drops of course!

You need a few supplies:

  • Dew Drops 
  • a tag
  • Distress Oxide – Worn Lipstick
  • spray bottle with water
  • butterfly embellishments
  • embellishment glue
  • black ink pad and sponge applicator
Step 1:Using a blending sponge, cover the tag with Distress Oxide. Spritz with water.
Step 2: Shade the edges of the butterflies using black ink and an applicator sponge. Stick them in place. If you want them to pop more, use foam tape. I made my butterflies using a die-cut machine and some scrapbook paper.

 

Step 3: Add Dew Drops, sticking in place with embellishment glue.
That’s it! Isn’t it beautiful?
You can find Dew Drops online at The Robin’s Nest. They will have the perfect color to coordinate with your project. There are so many to choose from!

How to Embellish a Fun Summer Layout

Hi Crafty Gals,
Karen here…to share how I embellished a fun Summer layout.  I placed the Dew Drops to appear like bubbly clusters.  I used numerous colors and various sizes to create movement and placed a few of them over the photos to add more depth to the layout. Let’s go!

 

1.  Cut a 4×12″ strip of solid cardstock and then die cut a floral design into the corner. Adhere it vertically along the left edge of a patterned sheet of 12×12″ paper. Add a narrow strip of coordinating paper at the junction.

2. Matte the photos with coordinating card stock and decide their placement. Mark the area that will be covered by the photos lightly with a pencil. Remove the photos and carefully cut out any images from the background paper that can be used as embellishments. I removed a section of flowers and leaves and fussy cut them.

 

 

3. Adhere the photos to the layout and attach a strip (3×12″) of complementary patterned paper along the lower edge.


4. Next, add some of the rescued paper embellishments partially sticking out from behind the left photo. 

5. Add a variety of seashell stickers scattered underneath the photos.

6. Cut a 1 yard piece of plastic cording. Wind it into loose circles (5-6 times) to form a simple frame. Secure with a small bit of wire and place over the right photo. Use a needle and thread to sew a basting stitch along the edge of a strip of tulle. Gently pull the thread to gather the tulle and secure and add it to the top right of the frame.  Cut two daisy shapes from tulle netting and use a needle and thread to cinch the middle to give added dimension to the faux flower. Adhere a gem in the center and finally, attach it over the paper flower cluster.

7. Lastly, adhere a scattering of Dew Drops in bubble-like clusters around the layout. Use 3-4 colors of Dew Drops in various sizes for added effect.  (pink, blue, clear, pearl)

TIP:  To avoid disappointment and frustration, place Dew Drops on the layout without adhesive to practice the arrangement.  When you are satisfied, adhere them replacing the loose Dew Drops one at a time.  Alternatively, take a photo of the layout before you move anything so that you can refer to it when you are ready to glue everything into place.

How to Use Dew Drops to Make Jewelries

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a fun way to use dewdrops for jewelry making!

Process-

2. Added a piece of white paper to create a contrast.

3. Added dewdrops and designed it to my likings.

How to Make a Artsy Namaste Themed Notebook with Dew Drops

Happy Saturday! Victoria here.  I am back with another wonderful Dew Drops Canvas and a notebook with a yoga theme.  This was such a relaxing project to do and I have a useful notebook to gift to a friend.

Here are the products you need for this project:

Dew Drops Canvas in Artsy Namaste

A composition book

Echo Park Paper from the Little Girl Collection Kit (Lilac strip)

Jacquard Lumiere Paints in Pewter, Halo Blue Gold, and Halo Violet Gold

Tim Holtz Stencil

Dew Drops
Razzleberry Dew Drops
Orange
Yellow
Green
Pool Dew Drops
Royal Blue Dew Drops
Lavendar Orchid Diamond Dew Drops

Prima Chalk in Branch Bark

5/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon – ivory and gold chevron

Liquid Adhesive – Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Steps:

  • Prepare the composition book by adhering paper to the front and back, inking the outer edges with branch bark chalk ink.
  • Prepare the canvas.  I stenciled along the left side beginning with the Halo Violet Gold and working down with the Halo Blue Gold doing transitions by mixing the two colors.  Toward the bottom I mixed Halo Blue Gold with Pewter to darken it.  Let this paint dry thoroughly.  Overnight is best.
  • Adhere Drops with Liquid Adhesive.  I found a Chakra Chart on line and followed that generally for the color placement, using a rainbow of Dew Drops colors.  (You really need them all).  This was such a relaxing project.  I use a wax tipped nail tool to  pick up and place the Dew Drops.  It makes it so easy and placement is exact.  It’s just like coloring a lovely picture.
  • Let your canvas dry thoroughly.
  • Adhere the canvas using liquid adhesive to the front of the composition notebook covered with paper and let dry.
  • As a final touch, I added the grosgrain ribbon with long tails so that the composition book can be neatly tied closed.  I used liquid adhesive here too.  You could also add a tie using eyelets and ribbon for a longer lasting book.
  • All done!  Give it a try and let us know what you think!
~ See you in a few weeks with another fun project using Dew Drops!

A Journal Page

Hello everyone, I have been working in my art journal again and made a tutorial for you showing how I use Dew Drops on my pages.

The supplies I used in this project are:
  • Sun Yellow Dew Drops and Amber Diamonds
  • Embellishment glue
  • Book paper
  • Matte medium
  • Gesso
  • Punchinello
  • Teabag paper
  • Washi tape
  • Embellishments
  • Acrylic marker
  • Golden acrylic – teal  & Pthalo Green (Blue Shade),  Raw Umber
  • Black ink and sponge

 

Follow the steps below:

Use matte medium to stick down bits of book paper on your journal page. Allow it to dry.

 

Give a thin coat of gesso to push back into the background.

 

Begin to add your paint. I used an old credit card instead of a paintbrush.

 

Add more detail with bubble wrap.

 

Once again add a thin coat of gesso.

 

Glue on tea bag paper and your embellishment.

 

Add any words, quotes, etc, more embellishments and finally your Dew Drops.

 

 

That’s it! Another beautiful journal page using Dew Drops.
