How to Make a Fabulous Shaker Embellishment

Hi Girls,
It’s Karen…Come along with me and I’ll show you how to create a fabulous shaker embellishment using Dew Drops.  My little niece is a camera flirt…and I hope she stays that way.  She was blowing bubbles with her Grammy after an afternoon of swimming with her Aunt and being even more adorable than usual.  If you’ve never made a shaker, they add a lovely kinetic element to your pages and it gives the viewer a little surprise when all the elements clink and wiggle.

Supplies:
Raindrop Dew Drops

Directions:

1. Matte a piece of patterned paper with red cardstock. Use a white gel pen to doodle a dotty border around the edge.
2. Use a circle die to crop 4 photos. Matte 1 rectangular photo with coordinating paper.


3. Select the circle photo that will become the shaker. Cut out a circular frame of craft foam the same size as the photo.  
Adhere the circular frame over the photo.

4. Then, add a selection of Dew Drops and small embellishments like sequins, gems, beads, paper circles, or confetti. Cut a piece of acetate and adhere it to the frame to enclose the tiny bits.
(TIP: Make sure to double check that none of the tiny embellishments are thicker than the foam frame or they won’t be able to slide around freely.)

5.  Add a red paper frame over the acetate to finish off the shaker.

6.  Adhere the shaker and then embellish the layout with large bubbles, a cluster of embellishments on the main photo, and Dew Drops.

Other Supplies:
5 photos
die cutting machine
multiple sizes of circle dies
craft foam & acetate
small paper dots
pattern paper & red cardstock
white gel pen
liquid adhesive

Creating a Peaceful Canvas with Dew Drops

 

Do you ever find yourself longing for simpler, more harmonious times?  I certainly do.  I made this canvas to remind me to be centered and look for the peaceful solution in all things.

 

Ingredients:

Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Ranger):  I chose three distress blues and one distress oxide

Stencil:  Mine is from Stencil Girl

Dew Drops Diamonds:  Glacier Diamond Dew Drop Mix

Artsy Canvas: Dew Dove

Faber Castel Pitt Pens in Black

Wow! Embossing Ink Pad

Seth Apter Baked Texture Bees Wax

Tim Holtz (Ranger) Matte Media

Directions:

1.  Adhere the stencil to your canvas

2.  Apply various colors of ink with a sponge, through the stencil and let dry.

 

3.  Remove stencil and make sure all of the ink is completely dry. Go over any of the black lines you like with your Pitt pen (or black permanent ink marker)

 

4.  Stamp over the canvas with Embossing Ink (Wow! is thick and slow drying)

 

5.  Add the baked texture powder and heat with an embossing gun.  I do step 4 and 5 twice, cooling the canvas between each application.

 

6.  Using matte media adhere the Diamond Dew Drops.

7.  Your canvas is now ready to frame, use on an art journal cover or to decorate a household item.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I will see you the first Saturday of June!  Be well and keep crafting.

How to use Art Canvas on a Scrapbook Page

Hello Crafty People!

This was my “LIVE” for today. Grab a snack or a cuppa and watch me create a scrapbook page using the Art Canvas Seahorse as an artful embellishment. Here’s the finished scrapbook page.

 

HERE’S THE VIDEO

 

SUPPLIES:

Art Canvas – Seahorse and dew drops – Robin’s Nest
Art Chalks – Color Z Chalks
Alcohol Markers – Spectrum Noir (CT3, CR1, CR2, GB5)
Spray Sealant (clear, gloss) – Krylon
Copper Stickles – Ranger Ink
Water based blue ink pad -Adirondak Earthtones Stonewashed
Background paper – Colorbok
Shell Stickers – K&Company
Palm Tree Sticker – Jolee’s by You
Misc: photo, solid cardstock for matting photo, scrap cardstock for template, photo copy for mask,
adhesive, PC to print title, cotton balls
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
1. Photocopy the canvas art, may need to use a darker setting.  Cut out the copy to use as a mask for the background technique. Adhere to the canvas over the original picture with sparse dots of a dry adhesive.
2. Create a wave template from scrap cardstock. Place on the canvas approximately 1″ from bottom. Using a cotton ball apply the darkest blue chalk over the edges of the cut out waves. Continue to move up in 1″ intervals and repeat applying the dark blue chalk.
3. Using a clean cotton ball, apply the darkest turquoise chalk to fill in the rest of the white areas of the background.
4. Leave the mask in place and lightly spray with sealant.
5. Using all colors of alcohol inks, randomly color the entire seahorse. Don’t be blocked in by the geometric designs, by having multiple colors in one block, the results will be super!
6. Out line the entire seahorse and all the geometric shapes within, with copper Stickles. Using the Stickles as an adhesive, adhere the small round black dew drop in place for the “eye”. Set aside to dry.
7. Create a word processing document, change the size to 12×12 and create a title “Life’s a beach”. The font used is “Lovely Home” size 80pt. Double check printer orientation and print directly onto the 12×12 background paper.

8. Adhere the canvas to the background paper.

9. Select your photo and matte with turquoise cardstock, adhere to the background paper as shown.
10. Embellish further with Palm tree and seashell stickers.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you’re inspired to get crafty today!
Craft on!

How to Embellish Pattern Paper with Dew Drops

Hello Ladies,
It’s Karen here to share how to embellish pattern paper with Dew Drops. I used Neon Pink Mini Dew Drops to embellish a cute cupcake design in the paper to add an adorable touch to a little girl’s layout with her two Grandmothers. This is such a quick and easy way to add a dimensional touch to a fairly simply layout. Happy Mother’s Day to all the hard working & underappreciated Moms, Stepmoms, God Mothers, Foster Moms, and Grandmas.

Supplies:  Neon Pink Mini Dew Drops

Directions:  1. Adhere some coordinating decorative stripes along the lower edge of the layout.

 

2. Round the corners of the photos. To include journaling cards that can be discreetly hidden
and removable when desired, form a pocket by adhering foam tape behind
 the edges & lower portion of the back of the photos.
3.  Adhere the photos overlapping at a gentle angle.  Next, insert the journaling cards.
4. Adhere a variety of sizes of white heart embellishments.
Use iridescent glitter glue to accentuate the hearts.
5. Add Dew Drops to embellish the cherry cupcakes on the lower border edge.

 

Other Supplies:
2 photos
scrapbook paper
border strips
journaling tags
glitter glue liquid adhesive
corner rounder

Loving Picture Frame

Howdy y’all!

Well Mother’s Day is fast approaching! So your girl Mary Ellen from Creative Time With ME is here to help y’all out! I have a wonderful way to decorate a picture frame using The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!

 

 

 

  1. I started out by grabbing a raw wood picture frame.
  2. Next I brought out some Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Ground Espresso.
  3.  After placing the paint in my palette. I used a foam brush to apply it to the frame.
  4. When the paint was dry I brought out The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops and some Bearly Art Craft Glue.
  5. I then proceeded to glue down one of the small green Dew Drops and 7 red tear drop shaped Dew Drops.
  6. This process continued until all the flowers were on the frame.
  7. Then I brought the green Dew Drops back in and using the small circular and tear drop shaped Dew Drops. I created the look of leaves and  stems for the flowers.
  8. Next in the top and bottom center of the frame I brought out the red heart Dew Drops and gold large circular Dew Drops.
  9. And I proceeded to glue them onto the middle top and bottom portions of the frame.
  10. Once that was all done and dry. I was able to place a picture inside for my mom.
  11. Now it is ready to be a Mother’s Day present.

How to Make a Book Mark with a Book Theme Using Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s May already?  I sure can’t.  Today I want to show you a quick project, making a bookmark that can be used to “mark your place”.  So, let’s get started!
Ingredients:
Card stock tag – your choice of size.
Water color mists – I used homemade mists using Brusho Crystals in Bright Red, Orange and Dark Brown
Distress Ink in Campfire
Tissue paper
Yarn for tassel
Alcohol markers – I used a Copic Marker in Crimson and an Art n’ Fly in a yellow tone
Distress Matte Media
Chop stamp (I used my dad’s chop that he had made many years ago)
Alphabet stamps
Stayz On Black Ink

Mini Dew Drops – Safari

 

Directions:

Start by selecting your dew drop artsy canvas and coloring your book with alcohol ink markers.
Next spritz your tag with the spray of your choice.  I used homemade sprays, made with Brusho Watercolor Crystals and Water.  If you do this make use about 1/8th teaspoon of color to 1/4 cup of water.  The crystals go along way.

 

While the tag is drying, take a piece of tissue paper and stamp symbols of your choice on it with distress ink.  Allow to dry and then stamp your message with alphabet stamps using permanent ink.  I used a grungy old typewriter font.  Let dry.

Carefully hand cut the book from the canvas, which the tissue and tag are drying.
Adhere the canvas cut to the book mark based using distress matte media.  Pro tip:  Weight the book mark while it dries.  Remember paper has no memory, so if it becomes wrinkled from the spritzing you can easily flatten by placing it under a heavy book or two.
Adhere tissue to the bookmark.  Add matte media to the tag and lay tissue down.  Gently add matte media over the tissue.  This will add depth and the tissue, when dry hardly shows.  Do remember if you use water soluble ink it may move a bit during this process.
Finally adhere Dew Drops, as desired.  I used them at the top of the book mark, where they will be outside the pages I am marking.  Add a ribbon or yarn to form a tassel and you’re all done.
Hope you enjoyed this fun project AND I’ll see you in two weeks again for another project.
