Create Art – A Beautiful Tag Using Dew Drops

Hi everyone, welcome to another tutorial. I was really strapped for time with this project but came up with a very quick and easy tag design that you can do in under thirty minutes.  You need very few craft supplies and of course Dew Drops.
Isn’t that beautiful? I have a quick tutorial below and a list of supplies you will need.
Supplies needed:
tag
matte medium
printed tissue paper (I used one by Tim Holtz)
any quote or words you would like to put on your tag
yellow inkpad and applicator
glue
Follow the steps below:
1) Using matte medium, stick the tissue paper onto the tag. Go over the top once it is stuck down.
2) When dry, add yellow ink to any uncovered areas.

 

3) Go around edges of embellishment with the yellow ink.
4) Stick down with embellishment glue.

 

5) Add the Dew Drops.  I made a flower at the top and scattered some around.

 

 

Your all done!
I loved this project. It is versatile and you can easily adapt it to the supplies you have at home. Another fabulous way to use your Dew Drops!

A Journal Page

Hello everyone, I have been working in my art journal again and made a tutorial for you showing how I use Dew Drops on my pages.

The supplies I used in this project are:
  • Sun Yellow Dew Drops and Amber Diamonds
  • Embellishment glue
  • Book paper
  • Matte medium
  • Gesso
  • Punchinello
  • Teabag paper
  • Washi tape
  • Embellishments
  • Acrylic marker
  • Golden acrylic – teal  & Pthalo Green (Blue Shade),  Raw Umber
  • Black ink and sponge

 

Follow the steps below:

Use matte medium to stick down bits of book paper on your journal page. Allow it to dry.

 

Give a thin coat of gesso to push back into the background.

 

Begin to add your paint. I used an old credit card instead of a paintbrush.

 

Add more detail with bubble wrap.

 

Once again add a thin coat of gesso.

 

Glue on tea bag paper and your embellishment.

 

Add any words, quotes, etc, more embellishments and finally your Dew Drops.

 

 

That’s it! Another beautiful journal page using Dew Drops.

Watercolor and Dew Drops

I have been playing with watercolor a lot lately. Its unpredictability is both nerve-wracking and rewarding and I have found the simplest of marks make the most beautiful designs. Take for instance this project; I began with three splotches of paint and look at what it became!
You too can easily learn to do this. Simply follow the tutorial below.

Robins Nest products used:

Goldenberry Dew Drops 

Other supplies used:

watercolor paper
Ecoline Brush Pens (any watercolor ink or paints will work)
  • Turquoise Blue
  • Deep Green
  • Deep Yellow
  • Green
watercolor brushes
water
craft mat or palette
paper towel
pencil
waterproof pen such as Micron
the adhesive (I used Nuvo Embellishment Glue)
black ink pad and sponge
quote or sentiment

Step 1

Place a little watercolor ink on a craft mat by scribbling. Using a very wet brush pick up some watercolor paint/ink and create 3 splotches on your paper.

Step 2

Use a paper towel or soft cloth to remove any excess. Allow to dry.

Step 3

Fill in the sky and the grass area with your watercolor paint. Allow to dry.

Step 4

Use a pencil to draw the branches and tree trunk. If you are comfortable drawing with the pen you can skip this step.

Step 5

Now go over with your pen.

Step 6

Place dabs of glue where you will place your Dew Drops. This is a very intuitive process.

Step 7

Now stick your Dew Drops in place.

Step 8

Use a sponge and black ink to go around the edges of the paper to add a shadow paying particular attention to the base and add a quote if you like.

 

That’s it!
Here are some more photos for you to enjoy.

A Valentine’s Day Tag

Hello,  welcome to another tutorial. My post today is inspired by Valentine’s Day which is coming up next month. I love using a holiday as an excuse to design something new! I really love how this tag came out and it was really simple to make. The best part is I did some upcycling. The tag is cut out from the cardboard backing of a Bristol that finished and the heart is cut out from the front. Crafting really does not need to be expensive.

I have prepared a video tutorial for you showing exactly how I made this tag.  The supply list is as follows:

Dew Drops

Brown Dew Drops
Brown Tear Drops

Other supplies:

 

  • chipboard tag cut out
  • book paper cut in the shape of the tag
  • glue stick
  • Distress Ink – Vintage Photo & brush to apply
  • heart cut out
  • black gesso
  • white gesso
  • red acrylic painting – I used Americana Dark Scarlet
  • charcoal pencil
  • quote or sentiment
  • black ink pad and sponge – I used Versafine Black Onyx
  • raffia
  • Nuvo Embellishment Glue
Follow along in the video below:
