How to Decorate the Beautiful Flower Girl Canvas to Welcome Spring!

It’s almost time to welcome spring and what better way to do it than with creating a new canvas from the Creative Dew Drop Canvases Line?  I chose the Flower Girl Canvas just for a fun project.
Ingredients:
Copic Markers – choose you favorite colors
Black Pitt Pen
Liquid Adhesive
Dew Drops  Beach Party (lavender diamond dew drops), Purple Mini Dew DropsPurple Hair Dew Drops and Lullaby Tear Drops
Directions:
1.  Select your canvas and color with alcohol ink based markers

 

 

 

2.  Adhere Dew Drops with Liquid Adhesive, taking your time and letting each section dry thoroughly.  Make sure whatever adhesive you use dries clear.

 

3.  Once dry, you’ll want to trim your finished canvas.  Enjoy your finished canvas!  Personally I think this would look great on the back of a denim jacket!

Hello Crafty People!
Welcome to the Robin’s Nest Blog
Today’s video uses minimal supplies to create a magical tree on canvas.

 

Metallic blue pigment (ArtQuest)
Brown Marker (Zig)
Alcohol inks: Sunshine Yellow, Butterscotch, Pesto and Stream (Ranger Ink)
Felt pouncing tool (Ranger Ink-Tim Holtz)
Paint brush, water and a trimming tool
INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Wet the blue metallic pigment with water and brush onto background.
2. Color the tree trunk and branches with brown marker.
3. Place a fresh piece of felt onto the pouncing tool, load with Sunshine Yellow and Butterscotch alcohol inks in a semi circle/oval shape.  Pounce the color all over the tree leaves area.
4. Begin with a fresh piece of white felt, load the same way with Pesto and Stream alcohol ink and pounce over the tree leaves area until you get the desired result.  Add more yellow if desired.
*Not included on the video: Because the blue metallic pigment may smudge, spray seal with clear coat in your desired finish, gloss or matte.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!  I hope you’re inspired to do some creating today.
See you next time!
Craft on!

How to make a Happy Birthday Cake Canvas Card Topper

Did you know there are 35 Dew Drop Art Canvases that can be found in the shop in a variety of sizes?

 

I am using the Dew Cake a stylized birthday cake for my card topper today.  It is super relaxing to decorate the canvas and you’ll love how they can be personalized to your style and your recipient’s style using colorful dew drops in a variety of shapes and sizes.

 

So for my sunny birthday cake, I used the following ingredients (no pun intended):

Dew Cake Canvas

Acrylic Paints in Orange, Neon Yellow and Watermelon from Arteza

Gel Plate

Natural Sea Sponge to paint

Glossy Accents

Pitt Pen by Faber Castel

Dew Drops in Pink and Clear – lots of sizes and shapes here.

 

Directions:

1.  Mask the cake with a piece of paper

2.  Roll selected paint colors onto your gel plate and make a print on your canvas

 

3.  Refresh the cake outlines and border outlines by going over them with a Pitt pen.

4.  Add sponge painting after removing the mask to suit your look

 

5.  Cover with Drops, I adhered mine with glossy accents and capitalized on the white canvas to use Glossy Accents to simulate shiny frosting!

 

6.  Let dry and make any touch ups.

7.  Cut to the size you would like for your card.

8.  Mount on to a card and you’ve got a great, personalized card that is handmade by you!  You could stop here or add border embellishments as I did on the final card.  I also wanted to show you that to keep the canvas flat on the card with liquid adhesive, you should clamp to dry.

 

 

Thanks for joining me on this fun project!  See you again on the first Saturday in March!

How to make a Harry Potter “Always” Canvas Piece

Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape.

The most famous words in Harry Potter Fandom.  As a confirmed Potterhead (and Hufflepuff), the minute I saw this “always” Creative Canvas, I knew I had to create a HP inspired piece!

 

 

Let’s collect our tools and supplies:

 

 

Make it:

 

 

I have include Dew Drops in all the Hogwart’s House colors!

 

Not sure if I will keep this in my art journal or add it to a scrapbook layout – but it was so much fun to make!
Have a creative week!

Mistletoe Banner

Hello!! I just love Christmas and all of the trimmings so I decided to create a mistletoe banner for those unsuspecting people that linger in the doorways!

I am on the blog today with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops using their preprinted canvas and Christmas Dew Drops. Here is a close up of the canvas the drops.
To create this banner, I used spray inks on the canvas in two greens and set it aside to dry.

 

After it was dry, I glued on the red dew drops (berries) over the canvas. I also added some brads in the corners of the canvas and jute to hang the banner. Here is the completed banner, all ready for Christmas!
Robin’ Nest has all kinds of shapes and colors of dewdrops, make sure you stop by and check them out!! Thanks for stopping by. -Kelly Parker

How to Make Easy Mosaic Magic with Dew Drops Creative Canvas

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing some mosaic magic with the “Artsy Rose” Creative Dew Drop Canvas.

I have become completely enamored of the Creative Canvas kits from the Robins’s Nest – – there are so many ways to use them and the process is relaxing, creative bliss!

There are so many different looks that can be achieved – my project definitely has a mosaic vibe – and it was as easy as doing a paint-by-number!

Kits come with a pre-printed canvas, a supply of Dew Drops and an inspiration pic!

There are many ways to apply Dew Drops, just dot some glue on your canvas and add the Dew Drop!

My go-to for applying a LOT of Dew Drops is Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect – gently pick up and place Dew Drops – so easy and fast!

 

 

Designer Tip #1:  Use a Fine Tip Sharpie to outline the canvas design – helps anchor and define your piece

Designer Tip #2:  Use ALL of the different shapes and sizes to give your piece dimension and texture – experiment!

I did add some ink and paint to the canvas…
But I am still undecided how this piece will end up… I have 2 ideas:
-Fussy cut rose, add to a mixed media canvas with quote from Beauty and the Beast (Beauty is Found Within or Until the Last Petal Falls)
-Fussy cut rose and add to a card for Mother’s day – I think this would make a SPECTACULAR card!
So if you have read this far, I am going to let YOU decide how I should use this rose!  Leave a comment…..
Choose 1 of my 2 options – – or tell me how YOU would use it!  Someone will receive a Dew Drop RAK direct from my stash!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!
