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!

How to Make a Artsy Namaste Themed Notebook with Dew Drops

Happy Saturday! Victoria here.  I am back with another wonderful Dew Drops Canvas and a notebook with a yoga theme.  This was such a relaxing project to do and I have a useful notebook to gift to a friend.

Here are the products you need for this project:

Dew Drops Canvas in Artsy Namaste

A composition book

Echo Park Paper from the Little Girl Collection Kit (Lilac strip)

Jacquard Lumiere Paints in Pewter, Halo Blue Gold, and Halo Violet Gold

Tim Holtz Stencil

Dew Drops
Razzleberry Dew Drops
Orange
Yellow
Green
Pool Dew Drops
Royal Blue Dew Drops
Lavendar Orchid Diamond Dew Drops

Prima Chalk in Branch Bark

5/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon – ivory and gold chevron

Liquid Adhesive – Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Steps:

  • Prepare the composition book by adhering paper to the front and back, inking the outer edges with branch bark chalk ink.
  • Prepare the canvas.  I stenciled along the left side beginning with the Halo Violet Gold and working down with the Halo Blue Gold doing transitions by mixing the two colors.  Toward the bottom I mixed Halo Blue Gold with Pewter to darken it.  Let this paint dry thoroughly.  Overnight is best.
  • Adhere Drops with Liquid Adhesive.  I found a Chakra Chart on line and followed that generally for the color placement, using a rainbow of Dew Drops colors.  (You really need them all).  This was such a relaxing project.  I use a wax tipped nail tool to  pick up and place the Dew Drops.  It makes it so easy and placement is exact.  It’s just like coloring a lovely picture.
  • Let your canvas dry thoroughly.
  • Adhere the canvas using liquid adhesive to the front of the composition notebook covered with paper and let dry.
  • As a final touch, I added the grosgrain ribbon with long tails so that the composition book can be neatly tied closed.  I used liquid adhesive here too.  You could also add a tie using eyelets and ribbon for a longer lasting book.
  • All done!  Give it a try and let us know what you think!
~ See you in a few weeks with another fun project using Dew Drops!

HOW TO Make a Fall Tree Art Journal Canvas Cover (Part 1)

Have you seen the Dew Drop Canvases?  They are wonderful.  This post is part one of a two part posting on making an art journal using one of the canvases and dew drops.

The ingredients for this portion of the project are:

Creative Dew Drop Canvas
Diamond Dew Drops Sunset Diamond Dew Drops
Mini Dew Drops  Light Vanilla and Neon Yellow
Arteza Metallic Fabric Paint – light gold, pearl orange and pearl rose
E6000 1oz glue

Instructions:

This is so easy and fun to make!

1.  Cover your work surface for painting and paint the canvas with metallic fabric paint.  I painted one at a time and let each dry thoroughly before applying the next layer.

2.  Let your canvas dry overnight.  Check the instructions on your paints for any steps needed to ensure the paint is color fast.

3.  Apply dew drops as desired with the fine tip applicator with E6000 glue.  Allow to dry thoroughly.

Pick a canvas you like and a size that you like.  In two weeks on  March 21, 2020 we will be posting how to make an art journal using our prepared canvas.

Enjoy and be well!

~ Victoria
