Today I am sharing my project for a dew covered spiderweb! You can display it in a window (photo below) or use it on a page like the one above.
I have loved spiderwebs and all my life I have been amazed by them! Sometimes in life, we come across these fragile moments in nature, like a dew covered spiderweb and try to preserve them. So, I thought it might be fun to try and capture the beauty of the dew covered spiderweb with The Robin's Nest Dew drops. I started by googling spiderweb and found one on Flicker here. I found a photo of a dew covered spiderweb and noticed that at the intersections on the web, the dew formed drop shapes. Along the spokes of the web, the dew gathered in round drops.
I pulled out my salad packaging and cut the lip off the packaging cover with my scissors. I printed out a spiderweb on paper to trace and placed it under my packaging. I sorted out the dew drops before starting so I could work quickly. Using Rangers Liquid Glass I began tracing the web and worked from the center outward. It dries quickly, so I worked small areas at a time. Simple project, inspired by the most talented artist I know: Mother Nature!
Once I had my spiderweb, I cut a circle in the middle of the Halloween Swirl, so I could show the beautiful paper and put my spiderweb in the center. I added a matted photo and cut my title using The Robin's Nest Lime Green Glitter chipboard for the base of my title. The orange title is from Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge. I added a spider made with a button and some Stickles and a few flowers. I love how my oldest son is so interested in spiders and bugs. We just might have an entomologist in the family one day! Please find your next stop on the hop after the supply list!
