Design Memory Craft Blog Hop with Jill

Welcome, my friends, to the Studio!
Today I'm honored to be part of a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog hop as we team up with Ice Resin.
This was my first time working with Ice Resin and it was sooooo fun!
For my mixed media creation, I first stamped (Penny Black 30-215 Garden Blooms) and colored my inner bezel paper using PITT® Artist Pens.  Once this was adhered, I added Ice Resin Medium and Relique Tarnished Bronze powder to the outer edges of my bezel.  I used my heat gun to melt the powder.  Then I added Gesso and Gelatos® (Snow Cone, Lemon, and Butterscotch) to the edges.  Finally, I added the resin to the interior of the bezel and allowed it to dry overnight.  
To create my "plaque" I simply added lots of washi tape and Gelatos® to the wooden, precut board (uber-cheap at my local craft store), blending with my fingers as I went. I also added a touch of Gesso to brighten things up.  Finally, I embellished with twine and added my bezel to the"plaque" using dimensional adhesive.
PRIZES!
The generous folks at Ice Resin and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft have a fantastic prize package...
...simply leave a comment to be entered to win.
The blog hop projects will end on Friday but you have until midnight Eastern time on Sunday, May 18 to post a comment. Winners will be announced Monday, May 19.  Two winners will win a Designing with Gelatos kit OR a  prize pack from Ice Resin (a Resin Plunger, a Bezel, Medium and a Relique).

  68. Jill, this is SO AMAZING! I'm very exited to see Ice Resin in your beautiful creation! I never used Ice Resin and Gelatos in my projects and it's so sad to say that never saw it in our russian shops in Novorossiysk city. I love to draw since I was three years old, then I finished the school of art and now I want to explore the wonderful world of Faber-Castell!!! I feel that it can be really amazing to use such cool products in my new creations! It's like a breath of fresh air and I'm DREAMING SO MUCH of it!!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work! :)
