How to make a steam punk frame with Dew Drops

Halloween or anytime is a great time to make a steam punk themed frame!  For this frame I used a wooden frame from the one dollar store and went from there!  I hope you enjoy this project. 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • Dollar Wooden Frame
  • Gears from Mike Deakin Art
  • Flower and Frame trim – Crafty Inspirations
  • Dew Drops – black (I used mine from the Classified Bottle!)
  • Black Matte Gesso – US Art Supply
  • Art Alchemy Wax – Metallique White Gold and Antique Brilliance Mystic Turquoise Prima
  • Liquid adhesive
  • Flat brushes – for dry brush technique

 

Directions:

 

  • Paint the frame and all components on both sides with Matte Black Gesso.  If you need more than one coat, let dry thoroughly between coats.

 

 

  • Trial your placement of embellishments

 

 

  • Adhere all chip board embellishments, as desired.

 

 

  • Use a dry brushing technique with waxes of your color choice.  Remember to use the smallest amount possible for this technique.  I wipe my brush on a paper towel and then use it.  Your brush should be held as flat as possible to the surface and use the lightest touches possible.  You can’t subtract paint with this technique, but you always can add more!

 

 

  • When you are satisfied with the coloring, add Dew Drops embellishments, with liquid adhesive.

 

 

  • Let dry completely!
  • Your steam punk frame is complete!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to comment if you like the project!  Come back and visit often for more Dew Drop Love and Inspiration!

Welcoming Fall with Dew Drop Embellished Pumpkin

 Hello all,

Lori here, with a great project idea to Welcome Fall.  So, last year I had collaged a paper mache pumpkin and then didn’t know how I wanted to finish it.  This year, when I unpacked my Fall craft stash, I took one look at this half finished project and new exactly how I wanted to complete it.  Embellish with dew drops and top it off with pretty Fall florals; not sure why I didn’t think of this a year ago?!  Oh well, it made for an enjoyable project this year!  How are you welcoming Fall this year?

The Robin’s Nest Products:

Paisley Mini Dew Drops

Mowed Grass Dew Drops

Dark Vanilla Dew Drops

Other Supplies:

Paper Mache Pumpkin

Collage papers (napkins, book print etc…)

Fall Silk Flowers

Ribbon

Raffia

Instructions:

1) Collage a paper mache pumpkin and select a variety of Dew Drops that will compliment your design.

2)  Adhere Dew Drops down the recessed lines of the pumpkin.  I used Mini Dew Drop however, the size of Dew Drops will depend on the size of pumpkin being used.

3) Cover stem with Dew Drops (Original and Mini  sized Dew Drops).

4) Embellish the top of the pumpkin with silk flowers/leaves, ribbon and raffia.

 For collage tips check out this previous project video:

Happy day!

Illuminating Up-Cycle

I’m very excited to be a part of this Team!
These products are so fun and versatile, the projects on this blog, from the many talented designers are sure to inspire.

My first project is easy. Made from a recycled bottle, makes a great night-light and gift.

SUPPLY LIST:
 
Robin’s Nest Dew Drops (greens and browns)

Empty Bottle (This one is an empty Crown Royal bottle)
E-6000 Adhesive
Adirondack Alcohol Ink – Bottle (color) by Ranger Ink
Misc: mini lights and green fibers

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Remove all labels and adhesive residue from the bottle.
2. Lay the bottle on it’s side and apply E-6000 adhesive to the flat are in the center of the bottle in the shape of a tree. It’s best to work in small sections, so the adhesive doesn’t dry while you’re arranging the Dew Drops.  I did the trunk first, then 3 sections of the “leaves”, working bottom to top. Let dry completely.
3. Apply alcohol ink to the rest of the bottle with a sponge or felt cloth. Let it set for a few hours.
4. Unravel the mini-lights and feed them inside the bottle. The small 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ battery pack is adhered horizontally along the base of the back of the bottle and is not visible from the front view.

5. Put the cap on the bottle. It may not completely tighten down because of the wire in the lights. Don’t over tighten, you don’t want to damage your lights. Secure half way and embellish the left over space with a bow of ribbon or fibers.

My design was a tree, but with the many color options of Dew Drops, the possibilities are endless. Also, the tree is only on one side of the bottle. I didn’t want the illuminated vision to be muddled with a background.
Thanks so much for stopping by the Blog today. I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project. Hey! While you’re here, check out some of the other great projects by the Design Team.
