Now for the whole view of my project today! Yay!
I found a frame magnet at Craft Warehouse on sale that I used for my "bezel". Since the frame was open in the center I cut out a circle just wide enough to reach the back of the frame, but not cover the magnets. I used my PITT artist Pen to trace a border on the circle, but made an oopsie mark, so I just repositioned the frame again and again creating many off center circles. Tip: Use a pencil first!
I stamped my sentiment and colored it with pastels, then glued it to the back of the frame giving it a day to thoroughly dry. I sprinkled Bronze Crushed Glass Glitter and Black Crushed Glass Glitter around the edges of the sentiment. When it was time to pour the resin I decided to add a butterfly with the same coloring and technique I had created on the frame sentiment. I sprinkled some Black Crushed Glass Glitter to the body of the butterfly and then Fran•táge with some Aged Black Embossing Enamel. I painted the resin onto the front and back of the butterfly and let it cure on my craft mat. I poured, no I should say drizzled, resin over the glitter into the magnet frame in hopes that it wouldn't move much, then kept adding resin until it was filled to the interior of the frame opening.
That's it for my project. Hope you have a great time on the hop today. Now head on over the Jennifer's blog
