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.

How to make a Hauntingly Cute Decoration with Dew Drops

Happy haunting Saturday to you!  Now is the time to get started on Halloween decoration or you could modify the colors and make a cute fall themed shabby bird house for indoor decoration!
Here are the ingredients I used:
  • Tiny wooden birdhouse
  • Popsicle stick
  • Sparkling Acrylic Paint – Prima Art Alchemy Sparks in Raven Black and Iris Potion
  • Elmer’s School Glue
  • Clock from Chipboard
  • Purple Daisy type flower
  • Dew Drops in metallic silver and purple
How to Make:
  • Get your small bird house (I think these cost about $1.00 at a large hobby store)

 

  • Paint with your base color, until evenly covered.  I used two coats of Raven Black Spark from Prima, which I let dry between coats.

 

  • We’re going to pull out an old home made crackle technique to make the roof shabby and worn looking.  Cover both sides of the roof with Elmer’s school glue and let dry until tacky to the touch.
  • Paint lightly with your second color, shown here in Iris Potion over the not quite dry glue.  You see in the photo below the cracking has begun, but the glue is still wet.  Let dry completely and admire your shabby roof.
  • While the roof was drying, I painted a popsicle stick with an eggplant color and cut into two little boards to “hammer” part way over the opening.  Glue together and let dry.
  • Add four silver tiny dew drops to the “boards”.  These are my faux nails, in this case.
  • When the birdhouse has dried, adhere a finishing piece of paper on the bottom, or you could paint this (your choice).  Adhere the boards over the hole in the bird house.  Add any other embellishments at this time.  Let everything dry.
  • Now you’re ready to add your haunted birdhouse to your table decorations for Halloween.  These also can be made in any theme you like from cozy cottage to steam punk castle.  They make great hostess gifts for the holidays throughout the year.  Thanks for stopping by!

See you again for crafty fun, very soon!

Whimsical Fall Canvas

Hello Crafty People!

I’m so sad that summer is coming to a close, but the colors of fall in Maine are astounding. I was able to enjoy the foliage a bit recently while driving to a meeting a loooong way away from home.

Today’s project is a small canvas reminder of the vibrant colors of the season.

Materials:
Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest

6×6 Canvas, acrylic paints (multiple shades of orange, blue, green and brown)
Adhesive and gold pigment spritz, sealer

Instructions:
1. Paint the background of the 6×6 canvas with acrylic paints, let dry.
2. Paint the bare trees.
3. Glue due drops into place.
4. Spritz the project with metallic gold spritzer. Let dry.
5. Seal with any spray sealant in the finish of your choice.  I like Satin or glossy.
The gold spritz looks amazing over everything  and brings it all together. I love how it beaded up on top of the dew drops!

Fairy Spools

Hello, today I am with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops! I have created some Fairy Spools.
I used the following products –
Grafix Shrink Film
Wooden thread spool
Paper flowers
Lace and muslin
Glue gun
Black Sharpie Marker
To start this project, print off your images on to the Grafiz Shrink Film and cut them out, then bake them to the manufacturer’s directions on the package. Remember they will shrink about 50% so print your images according to that measurement. I printed my images about 4″ tall and they shrank to approximately 2″ tall.
Using a Sharpie marker, I colored the edges of the image black. Using the glue gun, I attached my fairy to the top of the spool and then filled around her feet with flowers and Dew Drops.

 

Next, wrap the spool with lace or muslin and use a pin for decoration and add the dew drops to base. Here are the finished pieces.

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
