How to Use Dew Drops in 3 New Ways of Scrapbook Layouts

Hello and welcome to the blog – hope you are faring well during the current world madness and using lock down and quarantine time to relax and feed your creative soul!

Shelly with you today sharing a scrapbook layout with 3 different techniques using Dew Drops.  This layout features our newest family member – Sugar, but who really goes by Tiny Cat and more recently Puddle ( because she is getting a little pudgy and when she lays down, she turns into a puddle) and isn’t she a beauty!

Technique #1 FLOWER CENTERS:

This is a no-brainer!  Dew Drop Originals and Minis make PERFECT flower centers for ANY medium!

Use one or multiple – same color or contrasting color – it is a nice sparkly, dimensional touch to any flower embellishment.

For this layout, I created layered flowers using stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations and used green mini dew drops for my flower centers.

Technique #2 TONE ON TONE Dimension:

I love popping a Drew Drop of the same color onto parts of my layout for some added “oomph!” and  a little extra surprise.  Black Dew Drops on a black background is a great, subtle design choice – check out my black stripes!

 

Technique #3 SPOT LIGHT  Color from your photo

There is no denying the single, striking feature of my photo is my cat’s different colored eyes – that one crazy blue eye!  I have not used any blue in this layout – instead, I have popped some blue Dew Drops in strategic places on the layout to make you really notice that blue eye!

Machine stitching is another favorite technique to add texture to a layout

How to make a Fun Cookbook Layout

Happy Monday!  Shelly with you today sharing the newest addition to my “Family Favorites” cookbook scrapbook.

I love using paper piecings (hand made or pre-made) on my layouts and Dew Drops give that extra texture, dimension and sparkle.

*Note:  At the end of this post I announce the winner of my Dew Drop RAK from my last post!!

Supply List:

8 x 8 White Textured Cardstock (Base)
Diamond Dew Drops
Original Dew Drops
Stand Mixer Paper Piecing from Paper Wizard
“What’s Cookin” Paper Collection – Photo Play

Optional:

Machine Stitching
Inking

Make it!

  • Ink the edges of your paper piecing (use same color for subtle dimension, or black/brown for a more defined look)
  • Assemble piecing
  • Embellish with your Dew Drops and Diamond Dew Drops – – I like using odd number of Dew Drops in my groups with an odd number of groupings – ie I have used 3 clusters of 3 Dew Drops on this piece

How to Make Easy Mosaic Magic with Dew Drops Creative Canvas

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing some mosaic magic with the “Artsy Rose” Creative Dew Drop Canvas.

I have become completely enamored of the Creative Canvas kits from the Robins’s Nest – – there are so many ways to use them and the process is relaxing, creative bliss!

There are so many different looks that can be achieved – my project definitely has a mosaic vibe – and it was as easy as doing a paint-by-number!

Kits come with a pre-printed canvas, a supply of Dew Drops and an inspiration pic!

There are many ways to apply Dew Drops, just dot some glue on your canvas and add the Dew Drop!

My go-to for applying a LOT of Dew Drops is Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect – gently pick up and place Dew Drops – so easy and fast!

 

 

Designer Tip #1:  Use a Fine Tip Sharpie to outline the canvas design – helps anchor and define your piece

Designer Tip #2:  Use ALL of the different shapes and sizes to give your piece dimension and texture – experiment!

I did add some ink and paint to the canvas…
But I am still undecided how this piece will end up… I have 2 ideas:
-Fussy cut rose, add to a mixed media canvas with quote from Beauty and the Beast (Beauty is Found Within or Until the Last Petal Falls)
-Fussy cut rose and add to a card for Mother’s day – I think this would make a SPECTACULAR card!
So if you have read this far, I am going to let YOU decide how I should use this rose!  Leave a comment…..
Choose 1 of my 2 options – – or tell me how YOU would use it!  Someone will receive a Dew Drop RAK direct from my stash!!

How to Create Perfect Highlights with Dew Drops

Special moments and perfect pictures.  Sometimes you do not need a lot of product to create a meaningful and beautiful scrapbook page.

But you do want that “oomph” to make your page pop! And that’s when you reach for Dew Drops!

My niece recently got engaged, and I am documenting the road to her wedding day! This layout features her “Save the Date” card and a few engagement photo “out takes” I swiped off Facebook and made into a collage.



I am using the Poinsettia Dew Drop Mix and the Rhapsody Collection from Photo Play for this layout.



Dew Drops add dimension and sparkle to this layout

Design Notes:  machine stitching and the name tag (Beyoutiful) from the patterned paper are fun touches!
