Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here today sharing with you my latest
project using exclusive products from The Robin's Nest.
A spring garden inspired canvas, used as a shadow box,
to hold delicate lace crowns embellished with
a variety of shapes and colors from
Robin's Nest Dew Drop Collections.
I began with an 8x10 regular canvas, and chose the
Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock (script side)
as the background base for my canvas.
After using Mod Podge to adhere the cut cardstock,
I then used torn shabby chic print tissue paper, placed randomly
and used the Mod Podge to adhere it in the same manner as the cardstock.
Using a distressing tool around all edges, inner edges as well
to give a slightly worn & aged look to the canvas.
To give a time washed looked, I used
Tattered Angels color Wash in White Wash
applied with a small brush,over the canvas.
To make the crowns I used 6-inch pieces of dangled lace, shaped and hardened
with 4 coats of fabric stiffener, and secured the shape
by gluing metal wire on the "inside" of the crowns.
Once hardened, I used mixed media glue, along with
ScraPerfect's Embellie Gellie to add Dew Drops
and Daimond Dew Drops to the shaped crown.
I also added leaf wired trim to both crowns, to add to the "garden" look.
I used a laser cut word, and a collection
of flowers & clay embellishments to finish the canvas.
The finished result is slightly shabby, and definitely delicate,
a perfect addition to any wall.
And I love the versatility of the Dew Drops. They come in a variety of colors & shapes, and are the perfect compliment to any creative project, from scrapbook layouts and cardmaking to home decor.
