Happy Daze Dangly things challenge

This is my piece for the current dangly things challenge, if you want to be in with a chance of winning a £15 voucher with free P&P visit the blog post HERE

I used the fabby Lisa Pavelka resin to create my piece which is sooooooo clever!!!
It sets in 20 minutes with a UV light so makes it perfect for layered projects like this one.
If I had used normal two part resin it would have taken me days to make this piece and would have stunk the whole house out - this is odour free :D

Visit Lisa's website HERE to see some amazing video demoes on how to use her brilliant product.

I used a clear acrylic shape as a base (I think TH fragments would work well too which I must try) and added Prima Reflections rub-ons on each layer to create a 3D effect and beadazzles and glitter to the layer on the back.

I used a connector similar to this one set in the resin at the back of the piece above as a bail and a proper bail like this one on the example below.

You can add in extra embellies before you set the resin like I have done above without glue and they set solid.
The little flower over hanging the edge was supported with a little blob of plasticine while it was cured.

Moira has a fabby selection of jewellery finding and charms HERE if you want to create your own little wearable masterpieces
