Moulds by Mel ~ Guest Designer Jan 2013

I am excited to share these guest design pieces for Moulds by Mel you can find her Esty Shop HERE. I was lucky enough to see how Mel made these resin pieces in her moulds at the Hyden Retreat. She was so gracious in waiting to show us while everyone was packing up around her! Thank you Mel! All I can say is wow, These are super easy to make and the moulds are perfect for Resin, Wax and Clay. Mel has so many gorgeous designs to work with too! You can make the perfect embellishment every time and customize the colours to suit your projects! And they work so beautifully hand in hand with Dusty Attic chipboard too! Thank you Mel for having me as your Guest Designer, I have really enjoyed creating these.


I have used the Mushroom Moulds on this canvas, they are so cute and whimsical, I have used a white dabber paint over these then inked with a soft beige chalk ink.
I have used a stencil on the background, my new favorite with modelling paste.
Dusty used on this piece is the
deVine Frame Set DA0733
Flutterbies #3 DA0766
mini Birds #3 DA0727
mini Grass Clusters DA0786
Wrought Iron Fence border DA0176

The gorgeous Green Flower is one of Mistra's from a  DSD Spellbinders Die! She is a master at these! I want her to make some more so I can buy them!

What a little treasure it was finding this hidey hole was for photographing my projects, inbetween a couple of sheds on an old rusty frame. I gave Don strict orders not to rip these weeds out or move that frame! LOL


I have made this card using Kaiser Craft papers, I love the colours in this range. I have also used Mels Lady Grace Cameo on this card. What a gorgeous cameo, I love how she turned out!



Lady Grace is a gorgeous cameo with so much charm, you can see the process I used here to transform her and give her some depth.
1. Using the Easycast Resin make your cameo using Mels Moulds, Follow the instructions on the packet.
2. I have used Dusty Attic paints and a skin toned paint to paint in Lady Grace. Use a tooth pick to paint in the fine detail on the face.
3. To give her the glossy finish and luxurious depth to the cameo, I have brushed over her with the Biscotti Perfect Pearls dry powder. It just give her a gorgeous sheen and finish.

 I have used the new Dusty Moroccan Border on this card too, I used the Biscotti Perfect Pearls to colour the chipboard mixed with a little water.



I hope you have enjoyed these Projects, and I hope you can get your hands on some Moulds By Mel, the possibilities are endless and is super easy using the resin and great Value for Money! These would be great to use on your scrapbooking, Mixed Media, Card Projects and more, Even Jewellery! Oooh now that gives me an idea!

Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a great Day!
Hugs
