I decided to use my new mini mold Cousin Al made me, and well with the first time using a mold you have to get your proportions worked out...so the base ended up being a lil taller than I would have really liked, but all in all I think it turned out great!
First step is making my layered embeds. When I think of valentine I think of victorian/shabby chic, so I love reds, pinks, white, lavenders and greens. So here I made 3 layers of red white and green...a lil watermelon looking at this stage, but I knew it would come together.
Then I cut them up into pieces...
Here you see the first layer poured. It is an oatmeal base scented with almond. The embeds are scented with cherry blossom.
Next I melted some clear base and poured over the oatmeal base adding my embed pieces as I went.
Then I added a white topper and sprinkled more embeds on top...I LOVE this mold and being able to see what my layers look like as I go.
...and the finished product.
