Christmas Tree Banner

Hello! On the blog with Robin’s Nest dew drops creating a Christmas Tree Banner for the holidays. The holidays are fast approaching and it is fun to make gifts and decorations for family and friends.

Supplies used –
Spray ink in olive green
I took the canvas and sprayed it with the Shimmering Bliss olive green spray ink, let this dry completely before you do anything with it. Then fold over the top edge to create a pocket for the string to hang the banner.
Place the string in the crease and add some glue, then staple the top edge.  Then add the red diamond dew drop to the top of the tree and randomly add the white dew drops to decorate the tree. The banner is now ready to hang.

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!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, please jump around and see a few other fabulous projects for inspiration and the versatility of Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest.
Craft on!

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!
