A Little Mixed Media - Heart Bezel

Hello friends - Monday here for me, Monday evening infact and it has been a productive day.  It is always a great feeling to get some projects finished and photographed - getting them blogged is a whole 'nother show!! LOL!! 

I have used the  largest Bezel in the Spellbinders Media Mixage Hearts One - Bronze and the co-ordinating Die, which I believe may have been discontinued.  I have used some recycled Mixed Media paper, stamping some eclectic images onto it and then coating on both sides using Imagine Creative Medium to seal the paper so liquid does not change it.

I have added some embellishments - they are adhered by drizzling a little Ice Resin into the bezel and layering the embellishment onto it.  Once I was definite I poured in some Ice Resin - I love how it is self doming and dries like jewellers glass - perfect.

Some reasonably chunky glitter has been sprinkled onto the Ice Resin - it is heavy enough to sink slightly and has a great effect.  I am still deciding exactly what I am going to do with it - the options are many - maybe a necklace, on a canvas, bookmark.....to name a few!

  1. Linda this is gorgeous - love the dimension of this, and how clear the ice resin dries.

  2. Wow Linda - this is beautiful! A real little work of art - using snippets as well :)

    Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground, I think this is your first visit? And, do remember that to be in the prize draw I ask for a positive yest please to one or all parts of the prize. This is purely as in the past I did a couple of draws and found that folk didn't want to prize after all so had to fuddle about doing it again! Also, it does give me an indication of just how popular certain items are (pssst, for example, I know that the cover up did I used and have on offer is really loved by the Playmates, so there will be another one as a future prize - this is off the record of course - smile).
