Actually, the title should be Resilient Me from pursuing resin creations after some early fails. I guess that is the mantra of learning. Failure implies progression through the learning curve. Anyhoo, my latest resin creation incorporates one of my all-time favorite quotes.
I found these Tim Holtz frames and scanned them into Photoshop so I could re-size my quote photo to fit inside. I sealed the photos since I printed them on my inkjet and they would turn into a runny mess otherwise.
Then I applied some Swelligant to liven up the frame and placed the sealed photo into the first layer of resin.
The photo edge looked a little rough so I added a ball chain surround with a second coat of resin. Much better!
Here's another resin project that came out pretty well. It started with these heart shapes I found at Michael's. They sat for awhile waiting for inspiration to strike.
And then I saw these orphan teeny seashells in a drawer where I left them when I realized they didn't have holes for beading. I'm glad I saved them.
I arranged the seashells into the heart shapes, sprinkled in some random seed beads and then added the resin.
To finish, I put them on a ball chain to make great beach jewelry for my two nieces.
