Hi guys! Aimée here again for the April post. How cool is it that I get to post today? Super cool! Hope you all have a wonderful Day! I'm really excited about this month's project, I decided to do something completely different. I created 2 mixed media resin pendants.
This months special at The Robin's Nest is "Special Delivery" 20% off this month!
Ok let's get started!
I call this first one "Young at Heart".
Ingredients are a deep heart bezel pendant, ice resin (purchased at Hobby Lobby and all in the same section), Robin's Nest papers, sheet music, glitter, jump rings, cord for the necklace, dew drops.
Start by loosely trimming around the bezel in the shape of the heart with a craft knife. This paper is found here.
Next flip over the bezel and trace the inner edge.
Then trim it with scissors, it's hard to get it exact but it's not going to matter.
Next use the first heart you trimmed as a stencil and trace it onto the Pink Roses Vellum. Cut it out with scissors.
Lay the paper on top of each other inside the bezel and then rip out a flower piece from this paper.
Next I ripped out a piece of vintage sheet music and placed that over the top. (I'm just checking out the layers now to see how it looks placed there.)
Next I trimmed out a vintage photo of a sweet little girl and placed her on top.
Next I started to add in the layers with a glue/sealant. You could use golden matte medium or buy the paper sealant made for these pendants.
I sealed and layered in the papers and added some rhinestones for placement.
Next mix the 2 parts of Ice Resin in the cup and mix for 1 minute with the popsicle stick it the cup comes with.
Let it settle for about a minute.
You can either pour it in slowly or put it in bit by bit with the end of the popsicle stick (preferred).
Don't fill it to the top yet, add some sparkles. Let that layer settle for about 30 minutes.
Next it's ready for the next layer.
I added in a sealed piece of music nots, tissue paper and the vintage photo with colored in pink cheeks. I also put in another rhinestone and a few matching dew drops and a top layer of resin. Let it dry overnight and on a plastic bag or parchment paper.
Here she is fully cured, time to add her to a cord with a jump ring or 2.
Isn't she pretty??
NEXT UP the boy pendant necklace!
I did the same steps as above but with the boy paper and obviously a photo of a boy. This paper is called Belgian Chocolate mmmmmm! I then added a vintage looking star sticker I had.
Seal each part, back and front and let dry. Put it in the bezel.
Next I outlined the image with a white gel pen.
Next I added a white mother of pearl button. Add the resin and follow the above resin steps, let it dry overnight.
At the last minute I decided he didn't look like a good boy and crossed out the "good" with a black journaling pen. Funny thing is in the original photo he was holding his hands together like he was praying. Is he good?? Then I assembled it on a cord with jump rings and a pre-made trinket that dangles. There ya go! Hope you enjoyed this! I had a blast making them!
