Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you today sharing a fun & funky Christmas ornament that is made really special with the addition of Dew Drops.

Let's get started....

You will need:

Mini Dew Drops in Gold and Green
Smoothfoam Shapes
Decoupage Medium
Spray or Mist in green
Book pages or newspaper
Jingle bells
Hot Cocoa with Whipped Cream (optional)

  • Brush Decoupage medium on to smoothfoam shape and layer newspaper or book page strips until shape is completely cover, brush with another layer of decoupage medium (I also my fingers to layer paper - hence the latex gloves I am wearing!)
  • Let dry (use your heat gun to speed up the process

  • Using a green spray / mist - drip and spray splotches of color to your shape
  • Glitter your shape with a good chunky glitter
  • Let Dry
  • Drill hole through center of shape, top to bottom - all the way through

  • Cut a piece of twine 30" long, fold in half and push through center of ornament (I used a BBQ skewer)
  • Leave loop for hanging and tie loop in knot close to ornament
  • Thread jingle bell on twine at bottom of shape, know, trim excess

Now to add the WOW factor -- embellish your ornament with Green and Gold Mini Dew Drops

That's all there is to it!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative week!

A Beautiful Angel Inspired Christmas Mixed Media Canvas How To

Hello there crafty friends!
Michelle here with you today, sharing 
my latest mixed media canvas 
using exclusive products from The Robin's Nest.

  This project is inspired
by the angels announcing the birth of Christ.
From the first view of the beautiful 
"Our Temple Wedding" cardstock, 
I have wanted to use it on a canvas,
and what better season then Christmas
to do so.

Robin's Nest items used:
Our Temple Wedding Cardstock
Alpha Glitter Stickers (white)
Irredescent Classic Glitter Swirl Vellum
Gold Dew Drops
Silver Bells Dew Drops

Additional supplies:
Pigment Powder
Metallic Paint
Glitter/Metallic Gel Pens
Metallic/Irridescent Mists
Resin Wing/Crown & Cross Embellishments
Pigment Sticks
Paint Brush
Word Embellishment

I began with a 4x12x2 canvas as the base,
as I wanted the entire design of the
"angel" with the trumpet and the fencing.

I wanted a little bit of "glitz"
on the sides, top & bottom of the canvas,
so I chose the TRN Glitter Swirl Vellum.

Once the cardstock & vellum glue set, I
used a metallic rose-gold paint around the 
front edges of the cardstock.

I then applied pigment sticks in white, gold & silver,
with water to add a bit of depth and texture to the "angel" figure.
I used Mini Dew Drops, along with mist splatter,
as sort of a starry snowy sky.

I used wired gold ribbon to make a bow & tendrils, 
and added dew drops to pigment powdered 
resin crown/wing embellishment, 
and glued it as a center for the bow.

For final touches, I added 
"Luke 2" as reference to scripture,
and a pigment powdered resin cross, 
as well as the wood laser cut word
"Wonderful" to the bottom of the canvas.

And there you have it. This type of 
design would be a perfect addition hanging on the wall
or sitting on a table or shelf.

Hello Readers,

A few months ago I posted the opposite side to this page. 
Little sister was on the center of the page, with the 
non smile that we get from her, and I used the glittered
pink zebra paper for her layout.

I finished the other side with Becca holding her.
and just simple like the original page I have just added
a doily, bird, ring, 2 roses, and a small card to 
journal on.

I did spray some glitter spray on the page before I started
and pink dew drops when I finished.

Here are the Robin's Nest products I used:

Pink Glittered Leopard Cardstock   Pink Zebra Glitter Cardstock   Rusty Rose Cards

                                                            Pansies Mini Dew Drops

The original page that I made this layout to match

You can find these products on our website


Have a great day!!
