Have you seen my funny fish in my Art Journal?

Hello Crafty Friends,

Marie-Christine with you today with some funny fish in my Art Journal. I used some beautiful red mini Dew Drops for the bubbles.

How to do

First, I made my background with green, turquoise and orange Distress Oxide.


And I used a mandala stencil on my page with red Distress Oxide.

Then, I adhered some masking tapes and papers.

I found some funny fish on Pinterest, I cut and adhered them.

I did some circles with white marker and added my title with some little letters stickers.

Here the result!

Hello Ladies,
Karen here to bring today's bit of inspiration.  For me ,Summer means lots of time spent in the water either swimming in the pool or at the beach.  Grab your Dew Drops for your next summer-time project.  Dew Drops come in a glorious range of colors.  I used only shades of blue Dew Drops in various sizes.  Let's dive in as I show you how to create a bubbly underwater scene using Dew Drops. 

Water Dew Drops

Lakeside Dew Drops
Sky Dew Drops

1. Place watercolor paper into an embossing folder and press. Paint inside the depressed design with watercolors. Set aside to dry.

2. Stamp the mermaid with black ink onto watercolor paper. Carefully color the image and cut out the design. Add glitter glue to highlight parts of the images.  Set aside to dry.

3. Matte the embossed paper with light blue card stock and adhere to the card base.

4. Glue a small seashell to the top of a straight pin and adhere to a flower. Arrange all of the embellishments and adhere them.

5. Finally, use clear drying liquid adhesive to attach a selection of blue Dew Drops to create a cascade of bubbles around the mermaid.

How To Use Dewdrops On Watercolored Cards

Hello Crafty Friends!
It’s Fairuz Fabiha from “Craftivation” here with you today as a member of The Robin’s Nest design team.
Today I’ll be sharing with you a simple yet elegant watercolored card.


1. At first I randomly drew some flowers on watercolor paper.

2. Then I colored the background with a light wash of blue paint and started coloring the flowers.

3. I then added some details with a darker shade.

4. Splattered some blue ink, outlined the flowers and the leaves with a mixture of silver pigment powder & glue and then added a sentiment.

5. Then adhered the watercolored card panel over a slightly bigger card base.

6. Last but not the least, added some royal blue ‘The Robin’s Nest’ dewdrops!

Used Robin’s Nest Products:

1. Royal-Blue-Dew-Drops
