Happy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day – Mixed Media Embellishments With Dew Drops

Happy International Scrapbooking Day!  Victoria here with an embellishment project with a mixed media tulip theme.  I was inspired to show you this project from three things; 1)  A live video demonstration by Ken Oliver, where he was showing watercolor tulip painting, 2) photos I’ve seen on Facebook of the tulip fields in Washington State (especially Roozengard), and 3) I wanted to see if I could freehand draw and create a tulip with items I had on hand!
Supply list:
No. 5 manila tag
Acrylic Paints – yellow, orange, red and green (or your choice of colors – tulips are all colors)
Dew drops in neon yellowlimoncello and razzleberry
Black pen and a drafting pencil
Ribbon, I chose reds


1.   Freehand sketch loosely your tulip and stem.

2.  Add dimensional paste with a spatula, think frosting.

3.  Add acrylic paint and dry between each layer.  I used yellow, orange and red.  I used colors that I had on hand.  And then I painted stems with green.

These are the colors I used from my stash, since I can’t go to the craft store for new colors!

4. Once dry, add mini dew drops and dew drops to give additional dimension.

5.  Add final embellishments – I added red ribbons and a dashed line with black pen to ground the stems.

Have a wonderful National Scrapbooking Day and think about tag tuck ins for your journaling spots, behind photos or flipping open these add wonderful dimension to your projects.

In two weeks I will have a new canvas project for you!

~ Victoria
