I've come to the conclusion that resin is my all time favourite medium. I saved up leaves for a few weeks and now have these lovelies to share!







These are going to help me when Im longing for autumn when its freezing out. Ugh.

C&C welcome Smiley

Love these! I love fall leaves as well and this is a great idea. Resin still scares me. I've tried to do a few little things but I didn't add anything to the resin as I KNOW I'll mess them up so way. (perfectionist in me. Undecided)  Will the color of the leaves stay that way? Did you have any trouble with bubbles?

I have no idea if the color will change. hopefully I dried them enough and the resin preserving them will make it a very slow change, if any at all. Some bubbles were under the leaves but I got them out, and resin isnt too hard to get the bubbles out when you're using it, just blow on it. Smiley You should try resin! Its great once you get the hang of it, even if you do make mistakes every once and a while.

They're crystal clear and super colourful. I can't wait to get a few more mold shapes (I have no idea what happened to my rectangular one...) as I feel these would look great in an assortment of shapes and sizes. Also, their colours are going to hold me over all winter when it's cold and I'm longing for my favourite season to come back again.

You're quoting my blog why?
