How to Create a Pink Elephant Canvas using Dew Drops

Happy Saturday to you all!  Victoria here with a super fun new project, using one of the newest Dew Drop Canvases and Dew Drops.  When I saw this canvas, I knew it would be one of the first projects I did!  In addition to the way I used it here I can think of so many other options!

 

Ingredients:

For this project you will need.  Acrylic paint – I used Delta Brand Think Pink and Jacquard Lumiere Fabric Paint in Pearl Magenta.  A sharpie marker or other permanent marker, and Dew Drops.  Mine were Metallic Pink and Silver Mini Dew Drops from the Classified Mix.  You will need an liquid adhesive or glue dots to adhere the Dew Drops.

Directions:
1.  Mix the paints to form a pearly mid pink.
2.  Apply paint to your canvas.  A tip is to spray the canvas with hairspray to keep the lines in place.  Alternatively, you can go over the lines with a permanent ink and they will stay put!

 

3.  Let your canvas dry and you are ready to decorate with Dew Drops!  I use a liquid adhesive that dries clear to adhere the Dew Drops to the canvas.  Alternatively, the Robin’s Nest has Dew Dew Glue drops, which works perfectly for adhering dew drops to cards, scrapbook pages, art projects and canvases, AND they are non-toxic and acid free.

 

4.  Finally, let the dew drops adhere completely and use your canvas as you wish.  I added it to a great frame and will use it as a guest book table decoration for a baby shower!

 

 

 

Thanks for joining me for this fun project.  I will see you again, here on the first Saturday in August!
Have a crafty day!

Framed Art

 Hi there! Aimee here with a fun little mixed media piece.

I picked up a wooden 5×7 frame at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It’s real wood and actually kind of heavy. I painted it with a blue chalk paint and some regular black acrylic and  worked well for this piece of crafty art.

It was a lot of fun checking out my new team goodies and playing around. I did a little unboxing video, you can see it here  if ya want to.

I chose a canvas with an abstract design. I colored it with Dyluisons paints, some Tattered Angels shimmer mist, and Distress Glitter. I traced over the printed lines once my background paint was dry to make it come to the front.

I used goodies from three different bottles of Dew Drops, and they look so pretty.

The white piece behind the sentiment is actually from the inside of a frame die cut.
 Always keep those insides! They can come in handy.
The large flower is die cut from Grungepaper with a
cute premade flower in the center (Maggie Holmes).
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
I’m pretty pleased with this little piece of art.
The quality of the canvas is very good, and holy heck do ya get a
TON of drops in a bottle of Dew Drops.
I hope you enjoy this and that it sparks your creative brain a little bit.
Remember, be excellent to each other, and go make something!

How to Embellish a Beautiful Mermaid with Dew Drops

Hi Guys,
It’s Karen here and I wanted to share how I embellished a mermaid with Dew Drops. My motivation was my niece’s up coming 4th birthday. She adores mermaids & anything related to swimming. So when I found this wooden mermaid, I knew it would be a perfect addition to help celebrate her birthday. By embellishing the mermaid’s tail with Dew Drops, I created jeweled scales which gave the project a lovely texture. The beautiful colors & sheen was created by applying the transparent Dew Drops over metallic paint which intensified the colors. Let’s dive in!

Supplies:
    Bubbles Mini Dew Drops                 Water Dew Drops

Lily Pad Dew Drops                    Purple Mini Dew Drops
 

Directions:

1. Apply white texture paste to the number. Create gentle waves of texture paste to mimic the ocean using a popsicle stick. Set aside to dry thoroughly.

2. Paint the texture paste with shades of aqua blue & green metallic paint. Set aside to dry.

3. Paint the wooden mermaid with watercolor paint. Use a white gel pen to color her eyes and apply glitter glue to highlight select elements of the design.

(TIP: A set of markers came with the kit and could be used to color the wood.)

4.  Select Dew Drops to match the colors the mermaid’s tail was painted.  Place the Dew Drops onto the mermaid’s tail coordinating with the color underneath. Carefully, begin gluing the Dew Drops into position. Set the mermaid aside to thoroughly dry.

5. Next, adhere the mermaid to the large number with liquid adhesive.

6. Adhere a piece of glitter tulle to the back of the opening of the #4. This will increase the surface area which you can attach embellishments to and will provide an extra sparkle.
7. Create your underwater scene with fish, shells, & assorted sea life. Apply a transparent medium to give the sea creatures a shiny & wet appearance. When you are satisfied, adhere the elements into position.


8.  Stamp bubbles onto transparency, apply embossing powder, and heat set.  Carefully cut out the bubbles and add them in between the elements.  To create the appearance of more depth, adhere some of the bubbles underneath the aquatic elements, attach some on top, and have some bubbles overlap the edge.



9. To complete the underwater scene, use liquid adhesive to adhere a scattering of round Dew Drops to appear as bubbles in the turbulent water.

Other Supplies:

wooden number & mermaid
white texture paste / translucent medium (Glossy Accents)
blue & green acrylic paint / watercolor paint set / paint brushes
white gel pen / purple glitter glue
embellishments: sea shells, fish & assorted sea life
transparency, embossing powder, heat gun
purple glitter / tulle / liquid adhesive

Make a Seahorse with Dew Drops


 

Hi everyone, and happy Saturday!  Victoria here with a fun and easy project using a variety of colors and shapes of dew drops.

 

Ingredients:

Paper Mache sea horse (from Bare Naked Crafts)

White Gesso

Acrylic Paint Lumiere by Jacquard – Halo Pink Gold and Metallic Russet

Acrylic Paint Prima Art Alchemy Sparks – Raven Black

Liquid Adhesive

Dew Drops in red, orange, yellow, and gold

Steps:

 

 

 

 

 


 

Prepare your paper mache sea horse by painting it with white gesso prior to adding the layers of acrylic paint.  Let dry completely between layers so that the paper mache doesn’t break down.

Add dew drops, changing shapes as you go, with liquid adhesive and let dry thoroughly.  (Don’t worry if it looks like a hot mess at first.  It will dry beautifully!)

 

 

Continue to add dew drops and embellish as you wish.

 

Thanks for being with me to do this simple home decoration project.  You will love embellishing with dew drops.

How to Set Up an Easy Craft Table for a Children’s Party

Hello and welcome! Shelly with you today sharing how to create an easy and fun craft table for a kid’s party!

 

I recently hosted a craft table for a party of 8 year olds (11 of them!).  It was crazy, chaotic and a total blast!  Make it easy on yourself, “kit” your projects and provide Dew Drops – perfect for any craft project and easy for little hands and fingers to pick up and apply!
The party was Barbie themed, but it is also close to Christmas, so I did a combination Barbie/Christmas ornament craft.
Let’s start by looking at my table set up:

 

GATHER:

Supplies:

  • Flat wood ornaments (Amazon)
  • Twine for hanging
  • Paint (to make a base color)
  • Dew Drops of all shapes/sizes
  • sequins
  • Die Cuts
  • Colored Markers
  • Clear Drying Glue (buy 1oz bottles from Dollar Store – 1 bottle for every 2-3 kids!)
  • Cheap Paper Plates
  • Cup Cake Liners
  • Clear Treat Bags

Optional:

  • Stencils
  • Inks
  • Pom Poms
  • Glitter Glue

SET UP:

  • Flat wood ornaments purchased from Amazon were given a base color of pink or white.
  • The birthday party had a Barbie theme – so I wanted to incorporate a Barbie themed Christmas ornament and created some custom Barbie die cuts to use

 

  • Wood ornaments were then put into clear treat bags (1 each of pink / white) along with two tied loops of twine for hanging.
  • *designer’s note – the clear treat bag made it easy to distribute ornament “kit” and gave the kids a bag to tote their finished ornaments home.
  • A six foot table covered with a plastic table cloth accommodated 12 crafters – no chairs – keep them standing and focused!
  • I placed 6 paper plates on each side of table with the ornament kit bags.
  • I then poured different colors and shapes of  Dew Drops into cupcake liners and placed a Dew Drop filled cupcake liner on each plate.
  • Additional cupcake liners with sequins and buttons were placed in the center of the table

Directions:

  • LET THE KIDS GO WILD!
  • There is no wrong or right – let them do as little or as much as they want
  • and let them be as messy as they want – ART IS MESSY!
 
 
Without any direction at all, kids used the different Dew Drops in creative ways!

and don’t be afraid to be part of the party!

 

Thanks for stopping by today!
