How to Make a Book Mark with a Book Theme Using Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s May already?  I sure can’t.  Today I want to show you a quick project, making a bookmark that can be used to “mark your place”.  So, let’s get started!
Ingredients:
Card stock tag – your choice of size.
Water color mists – I used homemade mists using Brusho Crystals in Bright Red, Orange and Dark Brown
Distress Ink in Campfire
Tissue paper
Yarn for tassel
Alcohol markers – I used a Copic Marker in Crimson and an Art n’ Fly in a yellow tone
Distress Matte Media
Chop stamp (I used my dad’s chop that he had made many years ago)
Alphabet stamps
Stayz On Black Ink

Mini Dew Drops – Safari

 

Directions:

Start by selecting your dew drop artsy canvas and coloring your book with alcohol ink markers.
Next spritz your tag with the spray of your choice.  I used homemade sprays, made with Brusho Watercolor Crystals and Water.  If you do this make use about 1/8th teaspoon of color to 1/4 cup of water.  The crystals go along way.

 

While the tag is drying, take a piece of tissue paper and stamp symbols of your choice on it with distress ink.  Allow to dry and then stamp your message with alphabet stamps using permanent ink.  I used a grungy old typewriter font.  Let dry.

Carefully hand cut the book from the canvas, which the tissue and tag are drying.
Adhere the canvas cut to the book mark based using distress matte media.  Pro tip:  Weight the book mark while it dries.  Remember paper has no memory, so if it becomes wrinkled from the spritzing you can easily flatten by placing it under a heavy book or two.
Adhere tissue to the bookmark.  Add matte media to the tag and lay tissue down.  Gently add matte media over the tissue.  This will add depth and the tissue, when dry hardly shows.  Do remember if you use water soluble ink it may move a bit during this process.
Finally adhere Dew Drops, as desired.  I used them at the top of the book mark, where they will be outside the pages I am marking.  Add a ribbon or yarn to form a tassel and you’re all done.
Hope you enjoyed this fun project AND I’ll see you in two weeks again for another project.

Making a Tag with a Lace – Like Dew Drop Border

Happiest of New Years to you!  Welcome to 2021 with Dew Drops.
Today I want to demonstrate a tag with a lace-like border made from Dew Drops.
Ingredients:
Manila Tag
Gelli Plate
Acrylic Paint in Blue and Pearly White – guess I am still feeling Northern Hemisphere wintery!
iZink – blue
Butterfly embellishment
Sentiment
Liquid and dry adhesive
Directions:
 
1.  With a brayer, add a thin layer of pearlescent white and then blue to your gel plate.
2.  Lay tag on gel plate and rub evenly, pull mono print.
3.  Add a layer of this lovely blue IZink to your gel plate.  Don’t worry, it’s transparent and won’t overwhelm your previous layer.
4.  Let dry completely.  If your tag is curled, weight and leave for about 1/2 hour.  Remember paper has no memory, so you can flatten it again!
5.  Add quote and diamond dew drops.

 

6.  Now we will turn it like drop lace. Add dots of liquid adhesive for mini dew drops at each diamond point.  Once those have dried, add a tear drop below each mini dew drop and let dry.
7.  The next step is to add your focal point.  I cut our a large butterfly from a book entitled, “Extraordinary Things to Cut Out and Collage.”
 
8.  Here’s another look!
Thanks for stopping by today.  I am thrilled to be continuing on the design team for 2021!  Hope to share some new ideas with you and some amazing new canvases from the store as well!

Happy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day – Mixed Media Embellishments With Dew Drops

Happy International Scrapbooking Day!  Victoria here with an embellishment project with a mixed media tulip theme.  I was inspired to show you this project from three things; 1)  A live video demonstration by Ken Oliver, where he was showing watercolor tulip painting, 2) photos I’ve seen on Facebook of the tulip fields in Washington State (especially Roozengard), and 3) I wanted to see if I could freehand draw and create a tulip with items I had on hand!
 
 
Supply list:
No. 5 manila tag
Acrylic Paints – yellow, orange, red and green (or your choice of colors – tulips are all colors)
Dew drops in neon yellowlimoncello and razzleberry
Black pen and a drafting pencil
Ribbon, I chose reds

 

1.   Freehand sketch loosely your tulip and stem.

2.  Add dimensional paste with a spatula, think frosting.

3.  Add acrylic paint and dry between each layer.  I used yellow, orange and red.  I used colors that I had on hand.  And then I painted stems with green.

These are the colors I used from my stash, since I can’t go to the craft store for new colors!

4. Once dry, add mini dew drops and dew drops to give additional dimension.

5.  Add final embellishments – I added red ribbons and a dashed line with black pen to ground the stems.

Have a wonderful National Scrapbooking Day and think about tag tuck ins for your journaling spots, behind photos or flipping open these add wonderful dimension to your projects.

In two weeks I will have a new canvas project for you!

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

Hello Crafty Friends!

The lovely neon pink dewdrops goes so well with the muted pink and gold background and add an interest to the project.
