ICE Resin and Walnut Hollow CREATIVITY!
We are hopping with Walnut Hollow Blog Hop and having a great time. I received some fun items to play with from Walnut Hollow and had a blast making this resinated Steampunk wall hanging with ICE Resin covered chipboard and frame, faux finished wood frame and some fun watch parts!!
Link to more inspiration at the end of this post!
Industrial Chic Pendant
Walnut Hollow: Wood Frame
Gears: Candy Rosenberg Designs, Chipboard
May Arts Ribbon
Tattered Angels: Faux Paint System, Antique Hickory
Other: clock parts, vintage newspapers
Gather a couple pieces of old newspaper or dictionary pages and place on a plastic ziploc bag and cover with ICE Resin leaving a thin layer and allow all pieces to dry overnight. Carefully lift the pieces from the bag and trim the excess resin.

When adhering the gears, I slipped a little piece of May Arts gold ribbon underneath to give it a little more texture.
To fill in the wood frame opening, place a ziploc bag under the frame, pour resin to fill only the bottom with just a 1/4 inch thick of resin. Place a heavy object on the top of the frame to push the weight down to prevent as much of the resin from leaking as possible. Do this before you add any other pieces to the top of the frame.
Wait an hour, then go back in and randomly drop the watch parts in the resin. Place the heavy item on top again and let sit overnight.
Adhere all the pieces to the front of the frame, add some wording of your choice. I used Steampunk.
To finish it off add some Industrial Chic pieces to give it the final flair!
This was a fun piece to make...there are no limits! Be Inspired! Always!
