Crafter's Companion Frou Frou Collection in Resin

 These new pendants are among the prettiest I have ever made.
 They feature the artwork I fell in love with; Frou Frou by Kathleen Francour.
Fall head over high heels for the glitz and glamour of Kathleen Francour's Frou Frou collection! Inspired by 1920's Art Deco Line-art this carefree collection of distinctive mademoiselles, with co-ordinating patterns and design elements has a lively, modern twist that is sure to inspire beaucoup amuse (great fun) in your papercrafting!
 The Frou Frou Papercrafting Collection CD-ROM makes it very easy to create paper crafting projects.  I wanted to use the images for jewelry making projects, so after seeing the paper projects online I knew I would need to add this CD to my collection.
  In this picture, you can see that I printed just one of the already pre-designed pages onto white paper.
I cut my images and glued them into the bezels.  I sealed my paper three times with my decoupage/glue medium.  Sealing images is a topic I have covered here.
When my paper was dry (overnight) after sealing it, I added a little glitter glue to the edges.  

After the glitter glue dried, I simply poured in Jewelry Resin.   I did make a tiny mistake which I can point out now.  I did not notice that I left a tiny hair from my brush glued to my image in this bezel.  Darn it, I have not done that in years.  So, I have a repair project to do next!

Here is a link to the Crafter's Companion site if you would like to read more about the cds.


  1. I haven't been a big fan of beaded necklaces, but yours are so elegant I may give it try :) of course, I'll have to research the different kinds of beads and their properties.

  2. I love these! What you do with resin and jewelry is just astounding.


  3. Carmi,
