How to make a Harry Potter “Always” Canvas Piece

Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape.

The most famous words in Harry Potter Fandom.  As a confirmed Potterhead (and Hufflepuff), the minute I saw this “always” Creative Canvas, I knew I had to create a HP inspired piece!



Let’s collect our tools and supplies:



Make it:



I have include Dew Drops in all the Hogwart’s House colors!


Not sure if I will keep this in my art journal or add it to a scrapbook layout – but it was so much fun to make!
Have a creative week!

How to Easily Decorate a Small Ornament

Hey Friends,
It’s Karen and I am so happy to share my fun way to easily decorate an acrylic ornament.  I found this transparent acrylic unicorn shape in an after Christmas clearance sale. I immediately knew it would look glorious covered in Dew Drops. This is a quick and easy project that of course could be done using a wooden shape.


                          Riverside Mini Dew Drops         Sprinkles Mini Dew Drops

1. Practice laying out the gems to accentuate the design. Take a few photos so that you can refer to them when it is time to glue the Dew Drops in position.  Doing this will prevent disappointment and frustration.

2. Carefully apply adhesive to the acrylic shape.  Start along the edge and work inward. Add the Dew Drops to build the design. Use various sizes & shapes of Dew Drops to best fill the image.

Other Supplies:
clear acrylic shape
liquid adhesive
small embellishment placing tool (Embellie Gellie)

Vamos con el paso a paso!
Come on with step by step!
Recortamos el modelo que nos guste, tras buscarlo en internet. Podemos hacerlo directamente con el papel decorado si es de gramaje alto.

We cut the model that we like, after searching for it on the internet. We can do it directly with the paper decorated if it is high weight.

Encolamos las piezas, y comenzamos a decorar con las cintas. Yo he querido dar la sensación de que la caravana estaba abandonada, Y las ramas del bosque la han invadido, tras un año de no poder utilizarla.

We glued the pieces, and began decorating with the ribbons. I wanted to give the feeling that the caravan was abandoned, AND the branches of the forest have invaded it, after a year of not being able to use it.

Por último, vamos añadiendo nuestros otoñales dewdrops…

Finally, we are adding our autum dewdrops…

Hi everyone, Diana here with you today with a pretty floral card that’s perfect to send to that special friend. This card quickly came together and I love how the dew drops blend right in.



I knew I wanted to keep the background white as I was adding a lot of colors. I started with die cutting out the garden trellis and adhering it to my card base. I then stamped all my images and colored them in with my copic markers.
Once that was finished I used the matching dies and cut all the flowers and leaves out. I then arranged them onto my card front and started adhering them down. I wanted to keep the sentiment simple so a quick friend die from black cardstock was perfect. To finish it off I added several different colors of dew drops!
Other Supplies: garden trellis cover die, simply friend die (altenew), copic markers, long stem flowers stamps/dies (simon says stamp)

How to create an Always art journal cover.




Always Art Canvas

Dew Drops in pink and red

Paints – I used red, pink, orange, and pearlescent white

IZINK mist – copper buff

Faber Castel Pitt Pen – Black Ink

Embossing ink pad

Seth Apter Baked Texture- Vintage Bees Wax

Card backing

Gelli Plate


Heat Tool



1.  Go over the word Always with a pitt pen or other permanent ink pen.  Prepare Gelli plate with first color of acrylic paint of your choosing.  Bray with color and lay canvas onto the Gelli plate to transfer paint.

2.  Let layer dry and prepare plate with the next color of your choosing.
3.  Repeat the process of laying the canvas down.  Let layers dry between paint applications and keep layering until you have a lovely background.
5.  Add any mists to your canvas
6. Go over canvas lettering and design one additional time with the Pitt pen.
7.  Cover the entire surface with embossing ink and add the vintage bees wax powder.
8.  Bake with the heat gun until clear and shiny.  Since it is baked powder you can go longer than you would with embossing powder.  Repeat again with a layer of embossing ink and bees wax powder.
9.  Mount canvas on cardboard backing and trim to size.
10.  Using liquid adhesive, form the heart or another shape of your liking on the canvas with Dew Drops.
11. Once fully dry you can add to frame, or like I will be doing, use to create an art journal cover.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project!  Lots of steps this week but the beautiful results are well worth it.
See you next time.
