PENGUIN PLAY WINTER DECOR W/DEW DROPS

Hi everyone! Diana here with a fun wintery scene that you can add to the front of a 5×7 card or place in a frame and use as winter decor.

I had a lot of fun creating this winter scene. I’ve gotten into Lawn Fawn stamps lately and can’t wait to get them out and start coloring them!

 

I used cracked pistachio, peackcock feathers, and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks. Using the lightest to darkest I blended them together to get a beautiful night sky for my scene. I love how it created a glow around my tree. 

Once I had the background done I used a variety of small snowflake stamps with pigment white ink on the upper background area and let it dry. While this was drying I stamped and colored all of my images. I then cut some hills out of sparkle cardstock and started creating my scene.

Once it was all put together I pulled out my black/white/silver dew drops and added some of the white ones to the snowflakes.

Supplies:

Robin’s Nest: black/white/silver dew drops

distress oxide inks, blender brushes, sparkle cardstock, lawn fawn stamps.

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)
