How to Make an Art Journal Mixed Media Page with Dew Drops

 

 

Do you love mixed media art journals? This is a project for you.

Ingredients:

Mixed Media Journal
Water color paint – I used Sakura Watercolor
Copic Markers – I used Wisteria and Yellow Green
Pitt Pen Brush in black bold
Distress Crayon in hickory smoke
Canvas – Dew Note
Dew Drops in green and purple (Iris Mix)
Scrap backgrounds
Liquid and dry adhesive
Directions:
Paint a watercolor flower in your art journal. On the upper half of the page is important so you have room for the other elements.
Color your art canvas or paint it in colors you enjoy.
Assemble elements for your art journal page.  I used a background from a gelli print for the vases.
Cut pieces to fit in your journal
“Audition” pieces on your journal page and adhere with adhesive.
Finally, add Dew Drop Embellishments and add details to add depth such as bottom shading, which I accomplished with a hickory smoke distress crayon.
There you have it a super simple and fun art journal page!  I’ll be back the first Saturday in May with another fun project.  In the mean time, have a creative month!

FUN RAINBOW CARD USING DEW DROPS AND FOILED PAPER: BY DIANA SOLING

Hi everyone! Diana here today to share a fun card I made using dew drops and foiled paper together and a rainbow die.

 

 

I was going though my dies trying to decide what I wanted to create for this weeks post. I haven’t done any rainbows, like, ever. So why not start!

I started by choosing the foil colors I wanted to use and then got to cutting them all out! Seeing them all on the table was really inspiring.

You can make several different cards with the amount of pieces you get out. I decided to mix it up and backwards in the rainbow order to change it up a bit.

 

 

Once everything was together I trimmed of any extra pieces and added my rainbow panel to my card base. I then stamped my sentiment.

To finish this card I added my Robin’s Nest Dew Drops in the rainbow colors. I love that there are so many different ones that you can do a rainbow and have ALL the colors!!

How to Create a Dinosaur Birthday Card using Dew Drops and Creative Canvas

Wow, can you believe it’s April already!  For today’s project, I thought I would show you a cute way to incorporate a creative canvas and Dew Drops onto a on trend birthday card.  So here are the ingredients I used to get you started.

Ingredients:

8 1/2 x 11 cardstock – I chose craft paper color

 

Decorative paper and embellishments

Stamp for sentiment

Ink for stamping and clear fine embossing powder

Dew Drops – Jade Diamond Dew Drops  and Safari Mini Dew Drops

Creative Canvas Artsy Dew Dinos

Sharpie ultra fine tip markers in light and dark green

Adhesive

Instructions:

 

I chose the dino canvas for today’s card.  I love the 4 dinos and thought they would look fabulous colored and on a card.  This would also make a super fun wall hanging for a young man’s room.
For coloring, I chose Sharpie markers (permanent) in a light and dark green fine tip.  To color evenly, I used small circular motions, which helps blend and eliminate lines.
Here’s how the look when just finished.  As I move forward and merge the layers I will do a few touch ups, so keep those pens handy.

Next, I cut the images from the extra canvas using a paper trimmer.  Here’s a place for your fabric scissors if you prefer!

 

Next, using small scissors I cut around the outlines of the “backs” and “tails” of the dinosaurs.
Next, I created my card base.  I wanted a longer style card so the measurements, I used are in the photo. Fold your card in half, setting the fold.
I added a “bamboo” background from some older paper that I had in my stash.   You could easily stamp and color a background or just go with the card stock as a background as well.
I adhered the two rows of dinosaurs, off set to one another on the front of the card.  Once adhered, I colored in some of the other white areas to merge the two rows as one.
Add Dew drops for your border.  I used diamonds in groups of three to simulate a fern or plant and mini dew drops as stones or additional plants (not really sure which).  I used liquid adhesive, which I find really adheres the dew drops well!
Here’s a little close up of that border.  It can be as wild and free as you like!
Hope you enjoyed this project and I’ll be back on the 17th with another Dew Drops project for you!
Artistically yours,

Easter Bunny Love

Howdy y’all!

Mary Ellen here from Creative Time With ME! I have an adorable bordering on elegant Easter card to share with you!
  1. I began creating this card by bringing out some white cardstock that had adhesive sheet on the back
  2. Then I brought out my Martha Stewart bunny punch
  3. After punching out about 10+ bunnies I stacked them onto each other
  4. Then I stamped the sentiment onto the card front
  5. Going back to the paper bunnies. I brought out my T-square ruler to help me make sure that my bunny was straight
  6. Next I glued the tear shaped Dew Drops onto the card front to create a heart shape
  7. I then brought out a pen to help create the illusion that the Dew Drops were carrots
  8. Finally I put the second bunny onto the card front
  9. And to finish things off I attached the card front to the base

How to Create an Art Journal Page with the Peaceful Ideas Canvas

 Ingredients:

 

Art Journal

Watercolor paper 5 inch by 7 inch

Metallic texture paste (Shimmerz brand)

Watercolor paint (Brusho Brand)

Washi Dots

Netting

Small Button

Peaceful Ideas Canvas

Alcohol Ink Pens

Dew Drops – Blue from the Hillside Mini Dew Drops

Directions:

Color Your Peaceful Ideas Canvas with alcohol ink markers

Prepare your background.  I worked outside of my art journal and adhered it later, you could choose to work this in your art journal exclusively.  I stenciled a design onto the background with texture paste, let it dry and colored the untextured areas with watercolor.  In hind site, I could have done the opposite, watercolor and then texture.  Entirely your preference!
Once everything is dry you will cut the lightbulb out from it’s canvas.  Then you can layer as you wish.
My first layer over the background is a dried wet wipe I used for watercolor clean up.  I saved it because I thought it looked cool.  It made a great next layer.  It is adhered with wet adhesive.
Next I added a layer of netting.  To get it to lay the way I wanted it to, I centered a small button in the middle of the netting and wrapped the netting tightly and tied close to the button.  This allowed me to spread out the netting and I was able to adhere it only in the center using the button base.
Next I placed the canvas lightbulb, adhering it with liquid adhesive.  And added Washi tape dots.

Now the fun part.  Add Dew Drops.  I added them over the Washi tape clusters I made in the last step.  You could add more or less depending on your personal preference.

Finally, one the piece is dry, I adhered it in my art journal.  Here are a few close ups of the fabulous texture!

 

Have a creative week!
Artistically yours,
Victoria

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!
