I loves me a new challenge!

But I loves even more revisiting old ones with a new technique!
While waiting for the new challenge at Forever Dark to appear, I ripped open my new resin kit and had a play for the latest challenge over at
 June's challenge is to create using Bugs and /or gems and/or Gewgaws(flashy bling)
I'm not one for wearing bling, but the Junebug jewels appealed to me.
I have a broken spider necklace my dad bought me for my 18th, and decided this was the perfect challenge to final make use of it...
 So I lined a bezel with spiderweb paper
(and then did another with a chunk of background canvas from my stash)
 and I made way too much resin up so had to do a third...
 and still had too much resin left, so filled 3 watchface glasses, picked some forget-me-nots from the garden and added those too.
Left them to set overnight...
and the blue flowers had lost all their colour???
But I still love them as they look reeeeeeally old now.
 My spider is now encased in resin...
 with just a few body parts above the surface, as if she had crawled onto the wet sticky surface and been trapped
 like a golden bead sticking out...
 Hard to take close-ups of shiny objects lol...
 All 3 are so different, yet organic...
 I used 3 different colours of tiny beads  just sprinkled into the wet resin.
Some sank and some floated, which gives lovely depth to the piece...
 While this one is just the patterned canvas under resin, and makes me think of a portal into another moon over orange seas.
 Apart from the obvious excess and spillage, I thoroughly enjoyed making these pendants

See you on the Dark Side :D XXX
