Dew Drop Shamrock

Hello all,

Back again with another project using Dew Drops by The Robin’s Nest Creative. For this project, I am adding on to my last blog (Heart Ornament with Easel, featuring Dew Drops) by creating another Dew Drop Ornament. In that project I created an easel to hang seasonal ornaments from. So, being that it is nearly St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would create a little Shamrock of Dew Drops to hang on my easel (check instagram for photo on the Easel mentioned above).

Be sure to scope out the Mixed Media Quick Tips Video below for the step by steps.

When I am looking to make something cute and bright I often go to Dew Drops by The Robin’s Nest Creative. These beautiful little drops, diamonds and tear drops come in many colors and are a great addition to a craft project.

In the project below, I created an easel to put on my desk so that I could hang seasonal ornaments on. I then crafted a cute pink heart of Dew Drops to hang on the easel for Valentines day. Be sure to scope out the Mixed Media Quick Tips Video below for the step by steps.

After holiday creating

Hello all,

I love the holiday season and all of the crafty projects that I like to immerse myself in. I start in October and run crazy through December 25th. After that, though, I am ready to move on. The jingle bells and glitter are put away for another year and I break out my mixed media stash.

As a warm up to bigger and better mixed media projects, I created this 6″x8″ mixed media art piece on a flat panel canvas. I didn’t really have a solid direction, was just enjoying the whole process. Hence, the title for the piece below is “No Direction”.

A little collage, a little assemblage, a little steampunk and lots of paint. Yes, it is a familiar and happy place! Now I need to start thinking about what I am going to create for the Utah Arts Festival, Unmasked event!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! Now lets move our craftsy selves onto the next project!

Happy day!

Thinking about doing a video series that will focus on my progression through this deck. What do you think?
