Junk Journal Page

Hi everyone! Diana here with another fun project for you.  Today I’ve created a junk journal/journal page to share. This started out as being a large flower that I was going to add a stick to for a plant decoration and then a journal page was born!

Step 1: Cut out desired shape from solid colored cardstock of choice. Next you’ll choose another color or patterned paper to back the flower. Adhere them together and trim around edges.

Step 2: Use either distress ink in vintage photo or another brown you have on hand and add it to the image to give a little texture.

Step 3: Use the same brown ink on a 8 1/2 x 11″ piece of white cardstock.

Step 4: adhere the large cut out image to the left hand side of your page and trim off extras. You can then add some of the extra pieces to the corners as I did.

Step 5: Choose your embellishments and start decorating your page. I used dew drops as my main embellishment and choose some stamp sets and fussy cut the images once I stamped them.

SUPPLIES:

Robin’s Nest Dew DropsWinter retreat dew dropsdark vanilla dew drops & chocolate dew drops

Stamp sets: Close To My Heart

Ink: nectarine, fern, ruby, glacier, and archival black (Close To My Heart), vintage photo distress oxide ink

Cardstock: orange, mustard, and white

Create Art – A Beautiful Tag Using Dew Drops

Hi everyone, welcome to another tutorial. I was really strapped for time with this project but came up with a very quick and easy tag design that you can do in under thirty minutes.  You need very few craft supplies and of course Dew Drops.
Isn’t that beautiful? I have a quick tutorial below and a list of supplies you will need.
Supplies needed:
tag
matte medium
printed tissue paper (I used one by Tim Holtz)
any quote or words you would like to put on your tag
yellow inkpad and applicator
glue
Follow the steps below:
1) Using matte medium, stick the tissue paper onto the tag. Go over the top once it is stuck down.
2) When dry, add yellow ink to any uncovered areas.

 

3) Go around edges of embellishment with the yellow ink.
4) Stick down with embellishment glue.

 

5) Add the Dew Drops.  I made a flower at the top and scattered some around.

 

 

Your all done!
I loved this project. It is versatile and you can easily adapt it to the supplies you have at home. Another fabulous way to use your Dew Drops!

Art Journal Bubbles with Dew Drops

For a complete video tutorial on this project, visit my You Tube Channel.

Ingredients:
Tissue with type
Image of sunken ship
Acrylic Paint:  Antique White, Hydrangea Pink, Brown Sugar and Pumpkin
Ranger:  Distress Collage Media Matte, Distress Oxide in speckled egg, Distress Ink in chipped sapphire and faded Jeans
Mediterranean Sea Salt
White Acrylic paint mister
Faber Castell Gelato in White
Stencils for mini dots
Liquid adhesive
Paint brushes
Credit card
Sentiment printed on card stock
Steps:
1.  Select an art journal page of the size you like and cover with distress collage medium in matte.
2.  Add torn tissue to the background.  I used tissue with words (barely visible now).
3.  Paint tissue with antique white acrylic paint to push the type into the background.
4.  Add colors to the background – in this case to simulate an ocean I used faded jeans distress ink, chipped sapphire distress ink, and the more opaque egg shell distress oxide.  I worked adding up multiple layers and finally gave it a spritz of additional water to reactivate all the colors and sprinkled with Mediterranean Sea Salt to give a mottled look.
Tip:  Let the salt dry thoroughly prior to brushing off and it will absorb the most paint!
5. Add the white mini dots through a stencil with a white Gelato.
6.  I mixed a sand color using brown sugar and antique white paint
7.  Apply to the lower edge of the journal to simulate sand.
8.  Apply the focal image using liquid adhesive and let dry.
9.  Mix pumpkin and hydrangea pink paint to create coral.  I applied both
with a paint brush and with the edge of a credit card.
10.  Mist with the acrylic white mister for an opaque film.
11.  Dry thoroughly and add your printed sentiment with liquid adhesive.
12.  Adhere the water drop, dew drops to simulate bubbles from an unknown place.
13.  Sign and date and your art journal is done.
Have a great time with this project!  It is really fun to create your vision of the ocean and adding the mystery bubbles!

Love Collage

Hello, on the blog today with Robin’s Nest using dew drops to create a collage. Let me tell you, this was fun to do, I was shopping one day and found these posters at a ridiculously low price and bought several to make into collages. When I first bought them, I was thinking I would cut them up but then I had the idea to use the poster and embellish it!  This one happens to be 12″ x 12″ like a scrapbook page. 

First of all, I dug around in my stash of paper dolls and found the wedding couple. I then used my Pink dew drops and glued them around the heart. I then added the washi tape and glued down the couple. Quick and fun!! This would make a great framed gift for a wedding.

How to Art Journal with Dew Drops and Win!!!!

Happy Saturday!  Today I want to share with you an art journal page idea, using dew drops.  I love the vintage, shabby grungy look, but dew drops can fit into all crafting styles from the most clean and simple to the most elaborate layering!  So grab a cup of coffee or tea, your art journal and join in.  Do your style and show us over on our Facebook Page.

Supplies:

Mixed media art journal
White Gesso
Vintage book pages and calendar pages
Chip board
White dimensional paste
Stencils
Mists – Shimmerz Sprayz
Chalk ink – Prima pink and green
Paper doll – Tim Holtz
Dew Drops – diamond and round
Distress Crayon – Tim Holtz

Begin playing!  First applying paper to your page as you like, the add Gesso over the pages.
This “knocks back” the lettering if you have something bold – like the calendar page, in my case.

Dry thoroughly and let the fun begin!  Next I added the chipboard doors….  And added gesso over them.  At this point this could go lots of ways; elegant, shabby chic, grungy, vintage, etc.

I had fun spraying with blued, purples and ultra violet.
When you have gesso down, you can tilt and move the colors around until they are mixed as you like.  There is no right or wrong in you are journal.  Just experimentation and capturing your mood.

Next I added dimensional paste and stenciling.

Let everything dry and then embellish as you like, you can always stop at any time and lay it aside if it feels it needs more or is overworked.
I added the rub ons and paper dolls at this step.  I had this planned out for other embellishments as you might guess from the hand position.  It needs a door knob!
I added an original round dew drop for the door knob, a smaller round to accent the heart on the door and then the diamonds to accent the words, all using liquid adhesive.  Finally I added some shadows using a distress crayon.
So how can you win?!?  I am putting together a art journaling kit.  Lots of ephemera and other good stuff including some dew drops!  I will post the kit on our Facebook page and you will have two weeks to show me your art journal pages with dew drops (all entries in by 7/3/2020 at 11:59 PM Pacific).  I will announce the winner on my 4th of July blog post.  Once you have sent me your address the kit will be yours!
Let’s brighten up this time with ART!
