This bezel features a small girl and some pretty lace items which are embedded in resin.
My project began with these items.
A vintage lace table runner and ribbon, a little girl cast in resin and a bezel.
This year I am part of Stitched.
My online class shows you how to embed tatting in resin and this post shows you that the same techniques can be used with other fiber crafts.
There are seven online classes in STITCHED taught by an eclectic group of artists.
Hanna Andersson, Lynn Krawczyk, Celeste Beck,
Lesley Riley, Lidija Miklavcic, Carrie Payne and myself.
In addition, Alma, the organizer posts a new online class every month for the entire year.
Everything from doll making, silk ribbon embroidery and crochet, including two art quilt classes called Ladies of the Canyon and She's so Unusual.
There is also a 12 x 12 Block-of-the-Month every month.
+6 giveaway prizes that any registered STITCHED student can win.
STITCHED 2015 will last the entire year.
It starts March 1st 2015 and ends March 1st, 2016.
It is hosted in a private ning.com site.
It consists of over 25 online video instructions for only $89.00
If you would like to know how I cast my little girl in resin, just stop by iloveresin.com for instructions.
My resin pour was a success. My little girl is being held firmly in place in resin.
My fibers are now permanently embedded as well.
I cast my girl with black resin so her details were difficult to see.
I used some metallic gold rub on to bring out the detail.
It really is amazing how much detail the rub on shows off.
I have a give-away today also!
If you would like to win this group of bezels just leave a nice comment at the end of this post. I'll do a drawing Monday April 20th
