#Cre8time Keepsakes... Memory Inspired Collage from Trinkets by Aimée Wheaton


What is this? 

It started with a broken mug my mom had saved... believe it or not. This was a simple keepsake project using three products and trinkets I had around the house.


My mom LOVED blue and white dishes and saved
even her broken ones to use in mosaic art.


This was from a mug and makes a perfect niche.


The focal point was a pin she bought me at Express back in the 90's and it was a favorite. We had "Fleur de Lis" all over our home due to our French heritage. I loved it so much I had to mold it before I embedded it in resin. I LOVE Amazing Mold Putty for that reason alone.


I mixed some Amazing Casting Resin and threw in the trinkets!
Wait for the magic!


I swirled around a drop of blue dye as well. As the resin cures, it turns opaque.


Ooey gooey goodness! Love how RICH this looks!


From different angles...


This keepsake project came together quickly. I like how it is free-form and very different – it would make a great conversation starter. Hope you enjoyed this and see how easy it is to save pieces to use in resin work.

Do you save things to create with?
