A bit of New Year fun!

After the hectic Christmas period, I've found some time in the last few days to play around with resin again. I really love making these bangles and I have a couple of new moulds that I've been busting to use - a flat bangle and a flat ring.

I've been wanting to create some pastel coloured pieces for a while so that's where I started..... a lovely shade of mint green using the flat bangle and matching ring mould. The marbling I'd been hoping for didn't quite happen but I love the little bit of marbling that did occur.... such a pretty shade of mint!Here are the others I finished this week:Pretty pastel pink and translucent red.

A spotted translucent orange which has a lovely golden glow.

And this, my last piece for 2008. I decided to have a little fun with this photo and used a prop to add some colour.... love the effect.The bangle is actually clear and is filled with gold leaf but I love the pink glow from the LEDs in the base of the glass - a fun look for New Year's Eve!

We'll be starting the count down here shortly, so that's it from me for 2008..... I'm off to see the New Year in. I hope that you enjoy your celebrations this evening and that 2009 brings you happiness and success in all that matters to you. See you in the New Year........
