Use Dew Drops to embellish Mason Jar for Fall Home Decor'

Hello all,

The weather is cooling, schools are back in session and people are making the most of the last few days of warm weather.  Yes, folks, Fall is here.  I love the warm vibrant colors of fall and am always enamoured by the stunning display of trees and their changing leaves.  That is what inspired me to create this home decor' piece.

Mason Jar decor' is so popular right now and you can find supplies in nearly every craft store.  For this project, I decorated a 1/2 Gallon Mason Jar with Led Firefly lights, fall foliage and dew drops.  The finished project is sure to brighten your home with the warmth and beauty of Fall.  Enjoy!

How to Embellish Wooden Die Cuts with Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Friends,
It's Karen here share a layout of my daring nephew. I must confess I find it a bit challenging to create little boy themed layouts because I can't use my favorite colors or items like flowers and butterflies. I wanted something extra special for my little nephew's layout. When I browsed through my wooden shapes, the transportation items caught my eye.  I do like the look of the natural raw wood so I didn't paint them but something was still missing. Instead I added a pair of Dew Drops to each car to create realistic headlights or tail lights. Dew Drops are the perfect finishing touch to give your projects the "Wow" factor especially when a rhinestone or glitter is just too feminine. Let's get going and I'll tell you all about it!


Royal Blue Dew Drops

1. Fussy cut some patterned paper with a hexagon design. Adhere a strip vertically along the right side of the background.

2. Matte the main photo. Arrange five photos and adhere them to the layout.

3. Cut additional hexagons from the pattern paper and use them to embellish the layout. To add depth, attach some over the photos and some behind. Use foam tape for added dimension. Add a strip of red washi tape to the right edge.  Apply it half way over the edge and fold it over to the back side.

4. Embellish the wooden die cuts with Dew Drops. Adhere Dew Drops to the small wooden cars with liquid adhesive.  Create the tail lights with red and the headlights with yellow.

5. Add some small sticker embellishments to compliment the photos.

A Closer Look:

TIP: I used a tiny image from the thumbnail sheet and inserted the miniature photo behind the car so that it appeared like my nephew was riding in the car.

Additional Supplies:

five photos
liquid adhesive
wooden die cut shapes
pattern paper
blue card stock
red washi tape
sticker embellishments

Art Journal with Mini Dew Drops

I love art journaling and journaling in general.  For this project, I was covering up some private journaling I wrote a few months ago in my art journal in pencil, as I was going through a difficult time.  It was something that I really didn't want anyone to read, so I decide to paint over it to make it private, yet honor what I had written.

I found the great Seattle image on a recent vacation and knew I needed to use it.  It is from the cover of the Stranger Magazine's Seattle tourism supplement.  I really love the graphic feel of the image.

For the background, I initially covered my journaling with Indian Summer colored paint by Delta.  For all of the "Painting" and media on this page I used a small pallet knife to spread the media.  I used Prima rust media in rust color.  I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the clock face on the upper left with gray dimensional paste.  I also used a Lindy's mist in a lovely orange color.  The image was added using a glue stick.  I tore around the word "Seattle" and layered that over the other image.

One reason I love this is that my grandfather was an engineer on the Space Needle and my mom rode the needle before it was open to the public when she was pregnant with me!

To add a little jazzy glimmer, I used mini dew drops. I selected them from the Regency Mix.  I have to say personally that this is one of my favorite mixes.

Hope you enjoyed this simple project.  See you in a couple of weeks with Christmas Ideas!
