Mosaic Jewel Drops with Tonic Studios NEW Nuvo Jewel Drops

Hi Everyone

Today I have been playing with Tonic Studios NEW Nuvo Jewel Drops launched today as the One Day Wonder on Create and Craft.  I hope you have been watching the shows :)

The Design Team have made some inspirational projects for you to drool over so check them out on Tonic's Pinterest account.  You will love them. 

So here is my card for this afternoon an I hope you like it. I have used the Jewel Drops to create a mosaic effect background for you.  So let's get started!  

What I Did

  • First I took a piece of acetate and laid it over my glass mat so that I could use the squares as a guide.  I then took the red and green Jewel Drops and used them to draw squares to form a checked pattern ensuring that colours joined up together.  Let dry (I let it dry overnight).
  • Once the drops are completely dry I broke it into shards.
  • Take a 7" x 7" white card blank and glue the shards of jewel drops down the right-hand side to form an irregular pattern.
  • Next cut a piece of red card to 4 1/8" x 6 5/8" and a green piece at 4" x 6 1/2".  Layer together and add to the left-hand side of card front.
  • Die cut leaves from the Autumn Die Collection together with a greeting.  Glue in position.

What I Used

Tonic Studios Nuvo Jewel Drops - Strawberry Coulis (643N) and Key Lime (645N)
Tonic Studios Autumn Die Collection - Autumnal Oak - 1431E
Tonic Studios Sentiments- Retro Birthday - 1059E
Tonic Studios Funky Glue Pen - 421E

We hope you have been inspired.

Party Shoes with Tonic Studios New Nuvo Sparkle Dust

Good Afternoon Everyone

As it's nearly the weekend and us girls love to get dressed up to go out for that special night I thought I would share this project (or at least half this with you.  It's so easy to add some sparkle and glamour to a plain pair of shoes to give them that Wow factor!  All you need is glue, a brush and Tonic Studios Nuvo Sparkle Dust... so let's get started.

Post Sparkle Dust-ification 
Pre-Sparkle Dust

What I Did 

  • First find shoes you want to bling up and give them a good clean to remove any dirt or grease.
  • Next get an old pot to mix glue in.  Pour some Nuvo Adhesive into pot and then mix in some Sparkle Dust.
  • Then using a brush paint the mixture all over the shoe.  This will give a good base to build on.  Leave to dry.  Once dry add some more of the glue mix but this time holding the shoe over a box/tray, sprinkle the shoe with Sparkle Dust direct from pot.  Make sure all areas with glue are covered.  Wipe away any excess glue from inside shoe and sole. Leave to dry.  
  • Once dry tap off excess glitter.  Use a soft brush to burnish and smooth glitter.  This will get off any last remaining loose glitter.
  • Now you are ready to dance the night away - enjoy!

What I Used

Tonic Studios Nuvo Sparkle Dust - Silver Sequin
Forever Moments Matt Adhesive
Soft Brush

We hope you have been inspired.
