Art Journal Christmas Wish


Here is Elisa from Italy... Today I want to share with you my new Art Journal page!! A Christmas Page!! I had a lot of fun with texture paste, stencils, crayons, dew drops and of course the wonderful papers by The Robin's Nest:

Here is the processing video, hope you enjoy it:

And now some more pictures:

And now the supplies list:

Till next project!!!


Let's talk about a last minute quickie....

Hey y'all!!  Need a last minute card for the season?
Don't have a lot of time?  Well, I have the answer!!!
This is a quick and easy but gorgeous card I whipped up
with awesome products from The Robin's Nest!!!

Now I have a confession to make....
I HATE glitter! Why?  It gets everywhere!!
That being said, I am very impressed with this glitter cardstock!!!
The glitter did not go everywhere or get all over me!!  WOOHOO!!!

Use your die cut machine and cut snowflakes in white cardstock just a bit smaller
than your card base.... Save those cut outs!!  No waste!! 

Now take your blue glitter cardstock and cut to fit under your snowflake 
piece without seeing it around edges.....  glue it down to your card
base....  now adhere your snowflake piece over it....

Now add some silver straw, silver dew drops and clear dew drops to your card
and to the middle of your snowflake cut outs....
Now you have a quick and easy last minute card!!!  
Hard to get the sparkle from the glitter but I think you can see it....

Products used:

Raindrops Dew Drops  (used mini rounds)
Azure Straw  (used silver straw)

Thanks for stopping by and please come back again!!!

Boys can be angels too

Hello Chattering Robin's Readers,

a blog for The Robin's Nest

Did you know that boys can be angels too? 
Well, my grandsons can,
not always if you are talking to their parents, 
but I usually get the best of their behavior when they
come to grandmas for a week.

Here is Caleb
in his camo pants, because he wants to be just like his
soldier dad.  I was doing a photo shoot with the girls,
and only had 3 sets of angel wings, and he was really feeling left out!

We learned it was hard to find angel wings in our town period, 
didn't even have to be halloween, which is when I picked these up.

So we found some butterfly wings at the dollar store for him and he
was happy,  But when the girls went to change into new outfits, 
he wanted his picture taken with the real feathered wings

I complied, and these pictures of him have come to be
some of my favorites!  
(you can see the black marker mark on his belly,
He really wasn't perfect that day!)

Isn't his expression just the best!
That's what makes this layout so cute!
He is such a character! 
Which we in our family all relate it to the "O" in the last name,
and seriously, all of our grandsons have that "O" in their personalities.

The Robin's Nest Products used in this layout:

Black Herringbone Cardstock  Men's Suit Stamped Specialty Paper  Silver on Black Glitter Cardstock

Classified Sticker  Saffron Cards

The die cuts come from Gypsy Soul Die Cuts.

The wings I cut from the paisley glitter cardstock anything that
looked like it could pass as wings and cut them out and used them
all over the page for wings.

You can find these products on our website.

Have a great day!

Creating Super Easy Rustic Wind Chimes for Happy Campers

Hello and welcome to the blog today.  Shelly with you sharing an easy tutorial for rustic wind chimes for the "happy camper" in your life!

Let's get started!

What I used:

What I did:

  • Using Happy Camper Die Set, cut (1) trailer (2) arrow (1) heart (1) happy camper phrase from black cardstock scraps.  Set aside
  • Install eye bolts into wood rounds as shown in picture
  • Cut circles the shape of your wood round from Forest Trees Specialty Cardstock 
  • *my tip:  photo copy your wood rounds to use as cutting pattern                 
  • Ink edges of cut circles and adhere to wood round

  • Attach wood rounds to each other with knotted fishing line, add flatware to bottom eye bolts with fishing line long enough to allow them to hang freely and knock against each (the sound is AMAZING!)

I plan on hanging these from the awning on our trailer when we are camping.  Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative week!

Oh Christmas Tree That Sparkles-How To Make A Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Crafty People!
Welcome to Chattering Robin's.

Michelle here with you today to
share a new Mixed Media Christmas Canvas,
I created using exclusive products from
The Robin's Nest.

The first time I laid eyes
on the GORGEOUS 
Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock
I just knew I had to make something
that would showcase it.

SoI decided to make a mixed media canvas.

Products I used from
The Robin's Nest:
Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock
Christmas Dew Drops
Poinsettia Dew Drops
Fiesta Diamond Drops
Ornament Dew Drops
Dew Drops Glue

Additional Supplies Used:
Acrylic Paint
Christmas Themed Stamp
Glimmering Mist
Pigment Sticks (Gelato's)
Paint Pen
Wired Ribbon
Mica Powder
Red Ink Pad
Tapered Point Paint Brush
Iridescent Medium

I chose an 11x16 tripled treated canvas for this project.
I used my die cutting machine to cut a 
"fancy" Christmas tree design.

To color the canvas, I began
by using a red gelato to deep color the edges, and then I lightly used my water dipped paint brush to blend & lighten gradually
working my way towards the center.

While still damp, I used a red mica powder,
blending it with my finger to give some shimmer 
to the edges.

I then used the iridescent medium
to give a background shimmer, 
to the green glimmering mist.

I also used my paintbrush, dipped in a watered down
dollop of the spray,
to blend it to the edge of the red, and leaving it darker towards the center.

To add a more festive look, I used
a snowflake rubber stamp dipped in white acrylic paint,
and then randomly stamped all around the canvas.
To finish the surface, I used my paint brush once again,
to splatter iridescent medium & white made over the entire surface.

Once dry, I alternated my tree parts,
using both sides of the beautiful cardstock.
I then used a broad variety of Dew Drops & Diamond Dew drops
to decorate the tree.

My favorite part with this project was creating the 
poinsettia's & holly berries using the Dew & Diamond Drops. Such fun!

And I used TRN's Dew Drop Glue,
to add the Mini Dew Drops & Dew drops to the canvas.
I just followed the directions on the back of the packaging.

To finish, I added a wired ribbon bow, and some
mini red roses to the very top of the canvas.

This project, really had my 
creative thoughts going everywhere,
but once finished, it was Christmas perfection.

The Robin's Nest that I used on this project,
