Tree Canvas with Becky

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!

Instructions: 
1. Spritz the Artsy Canvas with Cream Metallic mist, let dry.
2. Cut a heart from a piece of plain white paper or a scrap, place over canvas and spritz with Cranberry Color Wash.  Pat away some of the cranberry with a clean dry cloth. Let dry.
3. Spray with a light coat of sealant of your choice. Let dry.
4. Glue Due drops around the outline of the heart shape and dot your “I” with a tear dew drop.
5. Trace over the sentiment with a black brush marker.
Easy Peasy, but would make a fabulous valentine card!

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
