How to Embellish Bookmarks using Dew Drops

Hello Crafty People!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a very simple and easy way to use the lovely, bright and colorful dewdrops from the Robin’s Nest in your projects. I’ll be showing you how I embellished my bookmark using these dewdrops!

Process-
1. At first I took a white paper as the base of the the bookmark.

2. I punched a hole and tied a ribbon at the top.

3. Then I started assembling the dewdrops in blue and orange one by one into a mandala design.

4. Finally I outlined the border of the bookmark with a blue marker to highlight the center design more. That’s it!

Making a Steam Punk Tag with Dew Drops

Let’s make a Steam Punk Tag using mixed media techniques, Dew Drops, paper and cogs.  First of all, lets look at what you’ll need.
 

 

 

 

Ingredients:
 
#5 Manila Tag
Walnut Ink, mixed in water in a large spaghetti sauce container
Paper Towels
Brusho Watercolor powders in lemon, orange and dark brown
Distress Collage Medium by Ranger in Crazing
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Stamps – Faded Type

Let’s Begin:
 
1. Get a plain #5 Manila Tag and crumple it up.  Mix walnut ink crystals in a spaghetti sauce glass jar and warm water.  When mixed, drop the crumpled tag into it.  Leave to soak over night or 24 hours.
 
 
2.  Take Brusho water color powders in dark brown, orange and lemon yellow.  Sprinkle small amounts on tag and spritz with water.  The watercolors will spread.  If you like it, leave it, otherwise add some more and spritz again.  Let dry overnight.
3.  Once dry, paint with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing.  Let dry until crackled.

4.  Stamp randomly with the stamp of your choice, I used the new Stampers Anonymous  Tim Holtz Faded Type stamps with black onyx ink.

A Valentine’s Day Tag

Hello,  welcome to another tutorial. My post today is inspired by Valentine’s Day which is coming up next month. I love using a holiday as an excuse to design something new! I really love how this tag came out and it was really simple to make. The best part is I did some upcycling. The tag is cut out from the cardboard backing of a Bristol that finished and the heart is cut out from the front. Crafting really does not need to be expensive.

I have prepared a video tutorial for you showing exactly how I made this tag.  The supply list is as follows:

Dew Drops

  • book paper cut in the shape of the tag
  • glue stick
  • Distress Ink – Vintage Photo & brush to apply

How to Add Dew Drops on a Mixed Media Tag

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here. Today I’ll be sharing with you my first project of 2020, which is a lovely soft toned mixed media tag. The lovely neon pink dewdrops goes so well with the muted pink and gold background and add an interest to the project. I’ve been inspired by the beginning of a new year to add the sentiment ‘A new beginning’.

Here’s some closeup photos-

Christmas Tags with Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
First, I would like to wish you a merry Christmas and happy holidays. Thank you for your visits, here are my last projects of the year and also the end of my DT with The Robin’s Nest.
So, I made 2 Christmas and winter tags for you with some beautiful colors and Dew Drops.

 

How to do

 

I cut my tag in watercolor paper and tinted with Distress ink.

 

I used a snoflakes stencil with some blue Distress Ink.

 

 

I added some water on it with a spray.

  

      

I stamped my snow man on the tag and on a watercolor paper. I colored it with watercolor paints. Then, I cut it.

 

 

To finish, I adhered my stamp with some squares of foam and stamped, cut and stuck my title on the top.

 

 

This is the result with a beautiful ribbon and pink Dew Drops.


 

 

 

 

I made another one with a Christmas tree!
