How To Add Pizazz To An Old Picture Frame

Hello there! Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog. 

Michelle here today to share how I turned a very old picture frame, into a bling pizazzed frame, to hold a precious treasure of a photograph. This is an extremely easy project, especially if your frame base is a flat base.

For this project I selected a variety of color and shapes in the Dew Drop collections to add to my frame.

You can find the color selections via link below each product photo.

You will also need a permanent bonding mixed media glue, and a "pick up" tool is helpful in placing the Dew Drops in place. I used Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.

To begin, I cleaned the frame and glass with window cleaner, and sat the photo and glass to the side. I thoroughly dried the frame before applying the glue and the Dew Drops.

I used a very small amount of glue per each Dew Drop, beginning with the Tear Drop shape, alternating the Sea Glass colors in the blue & light aqua shades, point side in.

Once all Tear Drops were in place, I alternated mini blue Dew Drops from the Riverside Dew Drop collection, and the very, very light pink hue larger size from the Easter collection, at the inside of the frame, to complete the look.

That is it, simple and easy. Just look at the wow factor of the frame now.

How to Make a Dollar Store Valentine Something Special with Dew Drops

Hello and Welcome to the blog today - Shelly here with a super cute Valentine project that started with a Dollar Store purchase!  I went in for shoe laces, but these funky ceramic lips in the Valentine aisle caught my eye and went home with me. 

A little bit of time and a bottle of Dew Drops - the result is an adorable, sparkly set of lips to adorn my vanity.

What I used:

Dollar Store Ceramic Lips (Seasonal Aisle - Valentines Day)
Orchid Mix Dew Drops
Butterfly Sequin

The Lips in their original form

Orchid Dew Drop Mix

Optional (but makes applying Dew Drops SO easy!)
Best Glue Ever
Embellie Gellie

What I did:

  • Apply glue with gloved fingertip, allow to set until clear and tacky

  • Using Embellie Gellie or Tweezers, apply Dew Drops to ceramic piece

  • Embellish upper lip with a sequin butterfly

I hope you enjoyed this Dollar Store makeover!  Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative week!

Dream Big canvas

Hello everyone! Thanks for viewing the Chattering Robins blog today!
My name is Jenn and today I am sharing my first post using the amazing dew drops from the Robin's Nest!

I am an avid art journaler and I decided to try applying my journaling style and techniques to a canvas resulting in this adorable little wall hanging!
The Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest are a great way to not only add color and sparkle, but also subtle texture to your projects.

To begin, I started creating the background onto a canvas 5" X 7". Applying white gesso first and allowing to dry ensures a nice surface for paint and other mediums.

Add stamping and let the ink dry or dry with a heat tool. I used a script stamp and a butterfly with black archival ink.
Next, add bright color palette using several ink sprays. Spritz with water and tilt canvas to allow it to run and mix. I added a pinch of salt and dried my color with a heat tool to get the above result. Add some splatters of the colors used and dry.
Using a stencil with water creates this lovely shadow effect.

Using the same stencil with embossing ink and embossing powder adds even more texture.
Finally, lay out your embellishments and once they are all where you like them use adhesive or matte gel to adhere them to the canvas. (I later painted my frame and changed things around a bit to differ from this picture)

The Dew Drops are an amazing embellishment that adds so much to the design!
For this project, I used the following Robin's Nest Dew Drops

Thanks so much for viewing my post today!
 Be sure to look online at all of the amazing products The Robin's Nest has to offer!

Until my next post, Happy creating to all!

A gift box - how to adhere the Robin's Dew Drops

Hello to all Robin's Nest's fans! This is Libeeti here, with a fun project of a gift box, you can easyliy make yourself.
Recently, at work I was assigned to a project and a colleague of mine helped me very much with it. I wanted so show her how much I appreciated her help and support, so I've made her a gift box, out of thick cardstock, covered with pp and decorated with the fabulous Robin's Dew Drops.

This is how my box looked after I've built it, and before I decorated it.

And this is how it looked in the end, after decroating it with Robin's Dew Drops. Doesn't it just look so fancy and beautiful?
 Now, we've all stuglled many times with adhering small embellishments, especially if they're translucent, right? 
 Well, Robin's Nest came up with a fab tiny doble-sided glue dots, that are so perfect for adhering their beautiful dew drops, it called Dew Dew Glue!
 But how to take these tiny glue dots and put them on my project?!
I have a little tip for you - use a craft knife and gently peel off the tiny glue dot from the  sheet and put it carefuly whereever you wish your embellishment to be.
 You see how easy peasy it can be?
 In order to pick the dew drops, I simply scattered them out on my desk, and picked what I wanted with the tweezers. I feel like it's a party, seeing all those beautiful shiny dew drops scattered around :).
 Here's some close-ups on the dew drops decorations:

If you wish to know how to build a box like mine, you can visit my blog and my youtube channel, where you'll find a tutorial how to build a gift box.

Thank you for visiting the Robin's blog and I hope you'll find my tips useful.

Have a wonderful day,
