DREAM – Mixed Media Canvas

Hello fellow crafters!
I’m excited about today’s project, it’s jammed packed full of techniques and many different mediums.

SUPPLIES:
 
Hyacinth Dew Drops – Robin’s Nest
11X14 Canvas
PrismaColor Watercolor pencils, multiple blues and purples
USArtQuest metallic watercolors (blue and lavender)
Copper and Purple glitter glue (stickles) – Ranger Ink
Copper skeleton leaves
Epoxy and silicone mold (alphabet)
purple, blue and copper glitter
Flourish rubber stamps – Stampin Up!
Clear pigment pad for embossing, embossing pen
Electric blue and purple Ultra Thick Embossing Powder – Ranger Ink
Clear spray sealer, matte and glossy
Various adhesives (craft glue, Mod Podge, E-6000)
INSTRUCTIONS:
 
1. Draw a dream catcher without feathers, (or find one of many on-line). Mine was done on white paper first, then traced on to the canvas.
     a. Drafting and quilting tools can be a tremendous help when drawing or designing. These are ALVIN brand (Germany).  The half circle template is a quilting tool by EZQuilt (Massachusetts, USA). Sometimes, a ruler doesn’t hurt either :o)

b. I tried taping the paper pattern behind the canvas, but it didn’t last long so I held it as I traced.
c. *** Use an ink pen or sharpie, so your design won’t run.

2. Randomly scribble watercolor pencil in horizontal patches of various blues and purples until the background is mostly covered.

3. Using a 3/4″ to 1″ wide artist brush and water, blend watercolor pencil.
4. Accent some areas with metallic watercolors. Let dry completely, then spray with matte sealer. 
5. Place dew drops where desired and adhere. The center has 6 brown diamond shaped drops.
6. Apply the glitter glue. Rim is copper, the rest is purple. Let dry completely.
7. Use Mod Podge to decoupage the skeleton leaves in place.
8. Stamp flourishes around edges with clear pigment for embossing. *If the canvas is on a frame, slide a sturdy piece of chipboard underneath the frame from behind to create a level stamping surface.

9. Mix purple and blue UTEE or embossing powder together, apply to pigment, dump off excess and heat emboss.

*HINTS:
(1) Before heat embossing the stamped/powdered images, check for strays or over stamped areas. It can be touched up easily by removing unwanted areas with a tiny artist brush. Don’t expect perfection, sometimes the powder moves when you point the heat gun at it :o)
(2) UTEE has larger granules than regular EP, sometimes the finer lines don’t stick. These can be touched up after the first heat set with an embossing pen and more UTEE, heat set again.

10. You can use any lettering technique you love. I recently bought some new toys and wanted to play with epoxy and silicone molds.  (Entire alphabet is on one sheet/mold.)  Mix epoxy per manufacturers instructions, add glitter (purple, blue and copper). Pour into mold and set until firm. (overnight, to be sure)

11. Pop the alphabet out of the mold and adhere to the canvas with E-6000 adhesive.

12. Seal the entire project with glossy spray sealer.

If you ever have any questions about my projects or techniques, or need clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m always happy to help!
Have a fabulous week, Craft on!

 

CURIOSITY MIXED MEDIA PANEL

Hi everyone. Diana here today to share a fun mixed media panel I created for you. I had so much fun making this panel and am glad I finally pulled it out of my stash to use.

This panel has a lot of steps but only took me a total of two hours to complete. I let the process decide what was going to be used and this is what I ended up with.
Step 1: Paint your wood panel. I used wild honey distress paint.
Step 2: Once paint is dry, using a splat box, spray walnut stain distress spray stain onto the panel. I did use my heat gun to dry this a bit faster.
Step 3: Create an envelope using a template or die. Start adding ink to the envelope outside with desired ink and a sponge. Once dry, choose a stencil and add a darker shade of ink using a sponge.

 

Step 4: Pick pages out of an old book and rip them into small pieces. Adhere them down with matte gel and then brush distress collage medium in vintage over the top.
Step 5: Fold up your envelope and then your ready to adhere it to the front of your panel.
Step 6: Start adding all your other embellishments. Finish it off by adding your Dew Drops.
Here are some more finished project photos. I can’t wait to work on my next panel (it’s a pumpkin)

 

 

Supplies Used:
distress oxide ink ~ dried marigold, carved pumpkin
distress ink ~ ground espresso
distress spray stain ~ walnut stain, brushed pewter (on envelope)
distress paint ~ wild honey
distress collage medium ~ vintage
liquidtex ~ matte gel
sizzix ~ tim holtz thinlits #664150
stampers anonymous stencil ~ THS002

I hope you guys liked this one. To try out this idea you can have your Dew Drops collected from The Robin’s Nest.

Purple Dreams Collage

Hello, today I created a collage for Robin’s Nest using purple dew drops, paint, and collage materials. 

I started with a piece of cardboard as the base for this collage then built up the layers starting with gesso, acrylic paint, and some water. I then used Distress ink and TCW stencil Sunflower Mandala to create some depth to the center of the collage. then added some modeling paste to the background along the edges with a TCW stencil. Using black ink along the edges to enhance the piece I then glued down the image from Gecko Galz and added the purple dew drops.

The Blue Dress Mixed Media Collage

Hello, Kelly Parker here today showing a mixed media collage using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
I started with a piece of cardboard and gesso then used Cosmic Shimmer in three colors and dried it with a heat tool; then used Nuvo shimmer for more sparkle. Here’s a sneak peek!

 

 

I then decided on which Gecko Galz image I would use as a focal point and plotted out where this image would eventually be added to the collage. Using the TCW’s Pearl Modeling Paste and the TWC Sunflower Mandala stencil I added this to the collage a bit off-center making room for the image.  I then sprinkled some gold embossing powder on the mandala and heated it. This caused the modeling paste to bubble up, when this staged cooled down, I sprinkled more blue Cosmic Shimmer over the mandala and spritzed it with water.

Then I glued the image down and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges of the cardboard, using the TCW Art Is stencil to add some random words on the corners of the collage then rubbed in some of the TCW Gold Gesso along the edges. Blue Dew Drops were added to a section of the mandala near the image.

A Journal Page

Hello everyone, I have been working in my art journal again and made a tutorial for you showing how I use Dew Drops on my pages.

The supplies I used in this project are:
  • Sun Yellow Dew Drops and Amber Diamonds
  • Embellishment glue
  • Book paper
  • Matte medium
  • Gesso
  • Punchinello
  • Teabag paper
  • Washi tape
  • Embellishments
  • Acrylic marker
  • Golden acrylic – teal  & Pthalo Green (Blue Shade),  Raw Umber
  • Black ink and sponge

 

Follow the steps below:

Use matte medium to stick down bits of book paper on your journal page. Allow it to dry.

 

Give a thin coat of gesso to push back into the background.

 

Begin to add your paint. I used an old credit card instead of a paintbrush.

 

Add more detail with bubble wrap.

 

Once again add a thin coat of gesso.

 

Glue on tea bag paper and your embellishment.

 

Add any words, quotes, etc, more embellishments and finally your Dew Drops.

 

 

That’s it! Another beautiful journal page using Dew Drops.
