Mistletoe Banner

Hello!! I just love Christmas and all of the trimmings so I decided to create a mistletoe banner for those unsuspecting people that linger in the doorways!

I am on the blog today with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops using their preprinted canvas and Christmas Dew Drops. Here is a close up of the canvas the drops.
To create this banner, I used spray inks on the canvas in two greens and set it aside to dry.

 

After it was dry, I glued on the red dew drops (berries) over the canvas. I also added some brads in the corners of the canvas and jute to hang the banner. Here is the completed banner, all ready for Christmas!
Robin’ Nest has all kinds of shapes and colors of dewdrops, make sure you stop by and check them out!! Thanks for stopping by. -Kelly Parker

CREATE WREATH KIT

Hi everyone!

Diana here from all things creative by di  sharing a fun wreath project today. I purchased this kit a while ago and just never got around to putting it together. I finally pulled it out this past weekend and found it would be perfect for adding some pretty dew drops.

I started by painting the wood wreath area in a slate blue and once it was dry I added streaks of charcoal grey to give it a little more distressing.

Once the frame was dry it was ready for me to add the background paper. This was a great kit. It came with two different papers with patterns on both sides. I think that was the most difficult part!

The next step was piecing the flowers and ribbon together and starting to add the leaves to the frame.

 

The final project turned out so much better than I imaged and adding the dew drops as the center of the flowers are around the word added just the right amount of flair.

Shiny Butterfly Collage

Hello, today I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest using their dew drops in a collage project. Summer is winding down but there are still a few butterflies around here.
To create this collage, I started by attaching a napkin with common plastic wrap to a canvas panel. To attach a napkin to almost any surface, on an ironing board or towel cover with a piece of paper larger than your piece that will be covered with the napkin, lay the canvas panel or cardstock down cut off the plastic wrap to slightly overlap the panel. Then lay the napkin over that then lay another piece of printer paper over the sandwich and iron for a few seconds, keep the iron moving. This will melt the plastic wrap and adhere the napkin to any surface.

I used a Butterfly from Clear Scraps and used silver embossing powder on it to cover the surface, I covered it twice to get good coverage and shine. I then added Robin’s Nest dewdrops to the butterfly and to the canvas panel in several colors to match the flowers. I glued the butterfly down to the canvas and added the words along with drilling holes and adding the wire.

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!

Dragonfly Collage

Hello! Today I am crafting for Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
I started this collage with a painted 4″ x 4″ canvas and a napkin. I cut my napkin and took off the white ply backing and used Art Glitter glue to attach the napkin to the canvas panel.
I then cut my Clear Scraps dragonfly from the packaging and embossed its wings in gold then glued water dewdrops to the tail. I then used distress ink on the front of the collage in pink and blue to give the flowers some color. I used Vintage Photo ink on the edges and added the gold dewdrops from the Mardi Gras Collection.
