Hi it’s Wendy Smith here,
I was so excited when Mel gave me the opportunity to be a guest designer from her product.. super cool products!

I absolutely love the way the raw material turns out once the resin is dry. It produces a fabulous ‘vintagey’ cream colour that is perfect for natural/neutral toned layouts!
Here is one layout using the RAW product:

But then I decided to have a bit of play with colouring them. I misted the Dahlias with Mr Huey’s mist and let pool in the holes of the flowers and then let it dry over a period of time. With the Bird, I sprayed with Mr Huey’s and then wiped it off so that on the creases were stained.

And then finally I decided to play with some gesso and paint. I used black gesso to cover the Filigree Heart and Dahlia and then once that was dry I smeared some red paint over them randomly.
So there you go, 3 very different effects and 3 very different results.I just love all these layouts and think the Resin embellishments add something really special!

Thanks again Mel for getting me to design with your gorgeous products
