Framed Art

 Hi there! Aimee here with a fun little mixed media piece.

I picked up a wooden 5×7 frame at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It’s real wood and actually kind of heavy. I painted it with a blue chalk paint and some regular black acrylic and  worked well for this piece of crafty art.

It was a lot of fun checking out my new team goodies and playing around. I did a little unboxing video, you can see it here  if ya want to.

I chose a canvas with an abstract design. I colored it with Dyluisons paints, some Tattered Angels shimmer mist, and Distress Glitter. I traced over the printed lines once my background paint was dry to make it come to the front.

I used goodies from three different bottles of Dew Drops, and they look so pretty.

The white piece behind the sentiment is actually from the inside of a frame die cut.
 Always keep those insides! They can come in handy.
The large flower is die cut from Grungepaper with a
cute premade flower in the center (Maggie Holmes).
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
I’m pretty pleased with this little piece of art.
The quality of the canvas is very good, and holy heck do ya get a
TON of drops in a bottle of Dew Drops.
I hope you enjoy this and that it sparks your creative brain a little bit.
Remember, be excellent to each other, and go make something!

How to Make a Book Mark with a Book Theme Using Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s May already?  I sure can’t.  Today I want to show you a quick project, making a bookmark that can be used to “mark your place”.  So, let’s get started!
Ingredients:
Card stock tag – your choice of size.
Water color mists – I used homemade mists using Brusho Crystals in Bright Red, Orange and Dark Brown
Distress Ink in Campfire
Tissue paper
Yarn for tassel
Alcohol markers – I used a Copic Marker in Crimson and an Art n’ Fly in a yellow tone
Distress Matte Media
Chop stamp (I used my dad’s chop that he had made many years ago)
Alphabet stamps
Stayz On Black Ink

Mini Dew Drops – Safari

 

Directions:

Start by selecting your dew drop artsy canvas and coloring your book with alcohol ink markers.
Next spritz your tag with the spray of your choice.  I used homemade sprays, made with Brusho Watercolor Crystals and Water.  If you do this make use about 1/8th teaspoon of color to 1/4 cup of water.  The crystals go along way.

 

While the tag is drying, take a piece of tissue paper and stamp symbols of your choice on it with distress ink.  Allow to dry and then stamp your message with alphabet stamps using permanent ink.  I used a grungy old typewriter font.  Let dry.

Carefully hand cut the book from the canvas, which the tissue and tag are drying.
Adhere the canvas cut to the book mark based using distress matte media.  Pro tip:  Weight the book mark while it dries.  Remember paper has no memory, so if it becomes wrinkled from the spritzing you can easily flatten by placing it under a heavy book or two.
Adhere tissue to the bookmark.  Add matte media to the tag and lay tissue down.  Gently add matte media over the tissue.  This will add depth and the tissue, when dry hardly shows.  Do remember if you use water soluble ink it may move a bit during this process.
Finally adhere Dew Drops, as desired.  I used them at the top of the book mark, where they will be outside the pages I am marking.  Add a ribbon or yarn to form a tassel and you’re all done.
Hope you enjoyed this fun project AND I’ll see you in two weeks again for another project.

How to Create a Mixed Media Love Hands Spotlight Canvas Using Dew Drops

 

Happy Saturday everyone!  It’s time for a Mixed Media Canvas using a Dew Drops canvas and metallic Dew Drops.  I also want to show you a spotlight technique that you can use to enhance your canvas.  I was inspired by recent spot light technique videos by Mike Deakin Art on his You Tube channel and thought I would translate it to a canvas design.

Ingredients:
Dew Drop Canvas – Artsy Heart Hands
Metallic Silver Dew Drops
Brusho Mists (created with water and Brusho Crystals) – teal, ultramarine and purple
Liquid Adhesive
Round Mask

Creative Steps:

1.  Mist the canvas with teal mist and let dry thoroughly.

2.  Place the circle mask over the center of the hands, this will create the canvas spotlight.

3.  Leaving he mask in place mist with ultramarine and purple – again let dry.

4.  Remove mask to see spotlight (these mists are watercolors, so they rinse right off the plastic mask)

5.  Using liquid adhesive apply metallic silver dew drops and let dry.

6.  Enjoy your mixed media canvas!

Happiest of creating to you,
~ Victoria
