Tutorial and a Giveaway

I purchased this bezel from Objects and Elements a while back  and it has been sitting on my work table saying...Come on already...fill me up with some love....
and so I did...

I first cut out a piece of scrap paper to size and covered it in modge podge...


then grabbed one of these fun 3d nest stickers from Recollections...


I took the back off,placed the nest on some wax paper and covered it in resin...(when the resin puddles on the bottom,wait an hour,then slide it to another spot on the wax paper)


Gather a rhinestone strand and word sticker.Mount the sticker on to black card stock...


add some foam dots to the back of the sticker...this gives the sticker height in the bezel...


Arrange the components.Mix up a small batch of Ice Resin and with a wire add it to the bezel..one drop at a time...Next,add some drops to the bottom and place the rhinestones on top of it...


Once cured, soften up the pendant by adding a jersey chain and and stitch on a button.

House Bezel,Ice Resin,Rhinestone strand can be found at http://objectsandelements.com/shop/

Have a lovely day friends!! And remember..
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, and do so with all your heart.

“I thought about one of my favorite Sufi poems, which says that God long ago drew a circle in the sand exactly around the spot where you are standing right now. I was never not coming here. This was never not going to happen.”

OMG, there are so many cool 3D stickers that I have wanted to use in resin jewelry pieces, and I always passed them by! I never thought of coating them in resin over wax paper. You are truly a genius. Although now I will just spend more time in the scrapbooking section, LOL!
