Whimsical Fall Canvas

Hello Crafty People!

I’m so sad that summer is coming to a close, but the colors of fall in Maine are astounding. I was able to enjoy the foliage a bit recently while driving to a meeting a loooong way away from home.

Today’s project is a small canvas reminder of the vibrant colors of the season.

Materials:
Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest

6×6 Canvas, acrylic paints (multiple shades of orange, blue, green and brown)
Adhesive and gold pigment spritz, sealer

Instructions:
1. Paint the background of the 6×6 canvas with acrylic paints, let dry.
2. Paint the bare trees.
3. Glue due drops into place.
4. Spritz the project with metallic gold spritzer. Let dry.
5. Seal with any spray sealant in the finish of your choice.  I like Satin or glossy.
The gold spritz looks amazing over everything  and brings it all together. I love how it beaded up on top of the dew drops!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, please jump around and see a few other fabulous projects for inspiration and the versatility of Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest.
Craft on!

Be Merry! Slimline Card

Hello, my artsy friends, Kelly Parker on the blog today! Hope you are all ready for the holidays, they are right around the corner.  Today, I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops and a slimline card.

I used a rubber stamp of lights on my card stamping it multiple times down the front of the card. I then used two colors of Distress Inks in green to go over the front. I let this dry and sorted out the teardrop dewdrops in assorted colors called Gum Drops to look like Christmas lights, these were applied to the lights on the card with glue. I stamped the Be Merry along the bottom of the card and add white dots with acrylic paint.

One Christmas card down, many more to go! When do you start your Christmas cards?

 

Thanks for stopping by and have a merry holiday!

The Blue Dress Mixed Media Collage

Hello, Kelly Parker here today showing a mixed media collage using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
I started with a piece of cardboard and gesso then used Cosmic Shimmer in three colors and dried it with a heat tool; then used Nuvo shimmer for more sparkle. Here’s a sneak peek!

 

 

I then decided on which Gecko Galz image I would use as a focal point and plotted out where this image would eventually be added to the collage. Using the TCW’s Pearl Modeling Paste and the TWC Sunflower Mandala stencil I added this to the collage a bit off-center making room for the image.  I then sprinkled some gold embossing powder on the mandala and heated it. This caused the modeling paste to bubble up, when this staged cooled down, I sprinkled more blue Cosmic Shimmer over the mandala and spritzed it with water.

Then I glued the image down and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges of the cardboard, using the TCW Art Is stencil to add some random words on the corners of the collage then rubbed in some of the TCW Gold Gesso along the edges. Blue Dew Drops were added to a section of the mandala near the image.

How to Make a Fabulous Fire Cracker Card

Hey There,
It’s Karen here…to share this quick and easy 4th of July card.  Tear Drops are perfect to create the sparkling firecracker flame.  It is so simple to add glitter glue to Tear Drops and totally transform them into twinkling gems.  I’ll warn you now…once you add glitter to Dew Drops, it may be hard to go back to plain solid ones!  Stand back….Snap, Crackle, & POP!

 

The Robin’s Nest

Directions:
1. Stamp a fire cracker image onto white card stock using black ink. Stamp or doodle a design to the barrel of each fire cracker. Carefully cut out the images.
2. Adhere blue paper to a card base and then adhere a row of fire crackers.

 

3. Next, use silver ink to stamp an explosion burst at the top of each alternating wick.

 

4. Adhere a Tear Drop to a glue dot to keep it steady while you apply gold glitter glue atop each Tear Drop gem. When the glitter glue is dry, attach the flame to the top of the fire cracker.

5.  Lastly, attach a row of Mini Pearl Dew Drops along the lower edge.

 

 

Other Supplies:
candle rubber stamps
black, red, blue, & silver ink pads
gold glitter glue
glue dots
dark blue patterned paper
card base 4×6″

How to Make Perfect Rain Drops with Dew Drops

Hello Girls,
If you need to create faux rain drops, go grab your Tear Drops.  They will make the perfect accent for your Spring-time projects. What do you do when you don’t have nice fancy shoes to wear with your pretty dress?  Well if you’re my niece, you grab your brightest little rain boots.  I created this layout totally around her cute rain boots.  (Apparently, for a couple of weeks these were the only shoes she would agree to wear and would even wear them in the house!)

 

 
Directions:
1.  Trim off 1/2″ off 2 sides of a piece of pattern 12×12″ paper. Next, adhere it to a solid sheet of 12×12″ leaving a 1/4″ narrow frame. Add decorative border strips to the top & bottom edge.

2.  Matte 2 photos with coordinating color and adhere them to the layout at the extreme edge. Select a 3×4″ pocket card with a appropriate sentiment and adhere it between the photos.

3.  Embellish with die cuts & stickers. Add glossy varnish highlights to embellishments.  (owl’s eyes)

TIP: To stretch your supplies, make sure you rescue any paper that will be hidden underneath large sections such as where the photos will be. The raindrop paper was double sided with a cloud pattern so by rescuing it from the bottom layer, I was able to fussy cut the clouds and use them as embellishments.

Before gluing the layout together, use a pencil to lightly mark an outline of the main components to designate which sections of paper can be removed with a craft knife.  Simply stage the layout and take a photo of the placement of all the elements so you can reassemble it easily without frustration.

4. Use a white gel pen to add subtle details to the die cut umbrella and clouds.  Finally, add various tones of blue tear drops to appear as the raindrops.


A Closer Look:
 
 

Other Supplies:

  • 2 photos (4×6″)
  • patterned paper
  • embellishments- owl, umbrella, border strips, sentiment
  • tools- liquid adhesive / craft knife / white gel pen
