Altered Spoons and Dew Drops – A Perfect Combination!

Hello, today I am on The Robin’s Nest blog using Dew Drops and antique spoons! See below for a quick tutorial on how to make some for yourself.

 

For starters, I had to hunt down some spoons in local antique shops, gave me a reason to shop! Bonus! To start these spoons, I first colored them using alcohol ink, just remember that a little ink goes a long way.
While the spoons were slightly wet with ink, I applied gold foil to the raised areas to give them a little bling.
Gathering my supplies such as small flowers, Dew Drops, and Gecko Galz images, I started to decorate the spoons. The images needed to be cut down to fit the spoon bowl and I used Stickles around the edges of the image. I then added the flowers in matching colors and the Dew Drops in clear.
I then drilled a hole in the top of the spoon so I can be hung on the wall.
Thanks for stopping by and check out the beautiful collections of Dew Drops!

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

Lovely Hearts Ornament

Hello, today I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest Designs using Dew Drops. I love the dew drops, they are so fun to use and I seem to be embellishing everything with them!

My first project this month is a Valentine Ornament that could be used as a card or tag for that someone special.

I used an image from Gecko Galz, white heart doily, a red doily, a burlap heart, kraft paper, red and white twine, and Love Birds Tear Drops.

I have to apologize for the white doily below, I used a heart but took a picture of a round doily. You know how you get in the zone when creating, I do that often then forget to take pictures, so I sometimes have to go back and try to recreate what I used and I only had one white heart doily!

I cut out my image then inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo, set it aside.
Then layer the red doily over the white one and glue, lay the burlap heart over the red/white doilies and glue down.
I then added the image to the center. I then laid this layered piece over the kraft paper and cut it along the edge following the heart shape. I then punched a hole in the top and strung it with the twine.
When everything was dry, I then add the red tear-shaped dew drops around the edge.
Your ornament/tag/card is now ready for giving! Be sure to stop back by for more art. XOXO Kelly

Magical Dragonfly Mask ~ with Dew Drops

Hello all,
I am excited to share the mask I made for auction in support of the Utah Arts Festival.  My goal was to create a mask that prominently featured Dew Drops.  This is the second year that I have participated in this event and each year I have created a Dragonfly themed mask.  Because I love Dragonfly’s of course!
I love how the Dew Drops add texture and dimension to the piece.  I wanted to give the effect of a bulbous eye on one side with the wings on the other side.  Be sure to scroll down to see the step by step process.

  • Acrylic Paint
  • Stencil
  • Texture paste
  • Wire
  • Fabric
  • Matte varnish
  • Paper flowers

1) Cut paper pressed mask to desired shape.
2) Apply texture paste to tissue paper and adhere to mask.  Color with acrylic paint.

 

3) Adhere dew drops around eye of mask.

There is something very gratifying about creating art for a good cause! I hope you have enjoyed this project.

Art Journal with Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Friends,
Marie-Christine with you today with a page in my Diary Journal, very easy and very quick to do!
I used mini and original pink Dew Drops on it.
How to do
 
 
First, this is the original background before I added Distress Inks, I chose 2 green colors.
Then, I used a floral stencil from TCW with purple Distress Inks on the background.
 I found a vintage image on Pinterest, I adhered it on the right, and I colored the leaves on the top with markers. I printed my title on a white paper and stuck my mini and original pink Dew drops.
 That’s all, very easy and quick page, do you love it?
