Spellbinders has a new line of products out called Media Mixáge. They are specifically tailored for the mixed media artist, and I was lucky enough to receive some goodies from them to take for a spin. The thing I love best is that each set of bezels has corresponding dies that will cut the perfect shape to fit exactly inside. This is especially convenient for odd shapes, like circles or hearts. No ragged or awkward edges!

For this piggy magnet, I used the medium sized bezzle and die set, plus an image cut from one of their new paper packs. I just loved the pig image. I couldn't use a naked piggy, though, so I gave her a little tutu using some cut paper, and then added the "oink (oink)" cut from an old dictionary. Once this image was glued to the bottom of the bezel, I used the new ICE resin. I've never used resin before, but this was so easy! The two parts are in a plunger, so it's pre-measured. No mistakes!

After the resin had set a good 24 hours, I added some beads to the bottom loop of the bezel, and a nice rubber piggy to the top. I glued some magnets to the back, so this little piggy can live on my refrigerator. He'll remind me that we only need one pig in the kitchen.   Wink

this little piggy is really nifty!  I'm liking the bezel, its often hard to find any with a little style AND hanging loops!  I hear good things about the ICE resin, I bet its waaay easier to use than the two bottle "try and measure the same" method Grin

Love your magnet. It sounds super easy to make, and I can see some pretty neat jewelry pieces using bezels like that. I may have to try it.

So cute! I love the look of the bezel and I've been wanting to try using resin so I will have to check the ICE Resin out it sounds like something easy enough for me to use.
