Since it is one of my missions this year to take part in some challenges, I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp and Show this week. The Challenge is Metal-ology and here are my pieces.
This was lots of fun and this time I remembered to take pictures along the way.
When I was at CHA last month I saw some awesome new Media Mixage items from Spellbinders and Susan Lenart Kazmer. I got some the other day while I was out shopping with Susie. The die cut paper fits perfectly in the metal piece....So nice.
When I got home I started digging around in my stash and found some great stuff.
Lots of Tim Holtz goodies along with some great old clock parts.
I used some "gear" paper from Graphic 45, Steampunk Debutante Line. When it was glued inside I started putting the layers on.
Once I had it all arranged I added the crown and then filled the bezel with Ice Resin. This is a great product and easy to use. When it is completely cured it is very clear and durable. The hardest part is not touching it for 24 hours. I always have trouble waiting for glue to dry so this is a real test of my patients.
Last came the finishing touches, the wings. More time spent waiting for glue to dry. For the final step I will add a jump ring and chain to wear it as a necklace. I had so much fun, I made two more smaller ones to give as gifts.
