Here’s a great idea for transforming memories of your favorite trips into awesome reminders that can live around you, not just on your computer!
MEMORY MAGNETS: I used the Doming Technique and added some jump rings to connect our awesome pictures to some simple graphics created in MicroSoft Word or Photoshop. You can even cut pieces from postcards, brochures, maps….
TRAVEL COLLAGE: And here I use the Casting Technique to layer bits and pieces to create this wonderful collage. Bottom layer is actually cut from a map and becomes a little translucent when you put it in the resin. Second layer is a stamp, 3rd layer is a metal charm (I cut off the ring at the top). Be sure to allow at least 4-5 hours between layers, more if your item is heavy.
Scroll down for the how-to video. This started with our cute Pumpkin Ornaments, but so much more is possible! These pieces are all made using our Resin Color Films, domed with Brilliant Resin. This was my original idea, inspired by an expensive glass pumpkin I saw:
Here's a design with 2 variations, one with a beaded accent wired into the center, and another with a domed photo in the center. I love them both! These are beautiful as ornaments, a photo desk display, or as a pin. LOOK OUT CHIHULY!
This same technique can be used to make Bendy Resin Bracelets like these:
