Altered Spoons and Dew Drops – A Perfect Combination!

Hello, today I am on The Robin’s Nest blog using Dew Drops and antique spoons! See below for a quick tutorial on how to make some for yourself.

 

For starters, I had to hunt down some spoons in local antique shops, gave me a reason to shop! Bonus! To start these spoons, I first colored them using alcohol ink, just remember that a little ink goes a long way.
While the spoons were slightly wet with ink, I applied gold foil to the raised areas to give them a little bling.
Gathering my supplies such as small flowers, Dew Drops, and Gecko Galz images, I started to decorate the spoons. The images needed to be cut down to fit the spoon bowl and I used Stickles around the edges of the image. I then added the flowers in matching colors and the Dew Drops in clear.
I then drilled a hole in the top of the spoon so I can be hung on the wall.

Bunny Frame

Hello! I am on the blog today with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops. I hope you like this fun project.

I started out with the wood frame, leftovers from Valentine’s Day, then dug through my stash of Gecko Galz images to find just the right image of bunnies. I love this image and it works great with the frame.

I then painted the frame in light green that was mixed from a darker green and white. I let this dry then made a glaze with the darker green and water brushing it over the light green and wiping it back with a paper towel.

While this was drying, I used the plastic from the frame front and cut out my bunny image to fit the heart-opening. Then using some washi tape that was the perfect color of green, added two stripes along the bottom of the frame.

Then, using the green/yellow mix of Dew Drops called Spring Blooms, I worked out a pattern and glued them to the top and bottom of the heart.

Lovely Hearts Ornament

Hello, today I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest Designs using Dew Drops. I love the dew drops, they are so fun to use and I seem to be embellishing everything with them!

My first project this month is a Valentine Ornament that could be used as a card or tag for that someone special.

I used an image from Gecko Galz, white heart doily, a red doily, a burlap heart, kraft paper, red and white twine, and Love Birds Tear Drops.

I have to apologize for the white doily below, I used a heart but took a picture of a round doily. You know how you get in the zone when creating, I do that often then forget to take pictures, so I sometimes have to go back and try to recreate what I used and I only had one white heart doily!

I cut out my image then inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo, set it aside.
Then layer the red doily over the white one and glue, lay the burlap heart over the red/white doilies and glue down.
I then added the image to the center. I then laid this layered piece over the kraft paper and cut it along the edge following the heart shape. I then punched a hole in the top and strung it with the twine.
When everything was dry, I then add the red tear-shaped dew drops around the edge.
Your ornament/tag/card is now ready for giving! Be sure to stop back by for more art. XOXO Kelly

Collage Necklace with Dew Drops

Hello, so glad you stopped by today! Kelly Parker on the blog with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops, I love these delicate glass drops that can be used on any surface and they come in all kinds of colors! I created a necklace with collage images from Gecko Galz and Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.

 

I started off by gluing down a script collage paper and then used distress oxides to soften the edges, then added the image. After everything was dry, I drilled the hole, added the jump rings and cord, then added the Dew Drops.

Here’s a close up of the necklace.

Collaged Lapel Pins

Hello! Kelly Parker on the blog today with another project for Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.  I love adding these little bits of color to all my projects. They come in all colors and can be glued on with most any kind of glue that dries clear.

To make these pins, I glued down some script collage paper, then an image. I then used distress ink along the edges to soften them and add some color. After everything was dry, I added the Dew Drops and then the pin back. These pins are quick and easy but make wonderful gifts!
