Real Lavender Resin Pendant and Watercolor Greeting Card Kit
Here are two more gifts that are going to another birthday girl. The first one is a resin pendant made in a flat rectangular silicon mold. I filled it with real sprigs of lavender from a Hokaido lavender farm. I added some pieces of rosemary (from my windowsill herb pot) because the lavender leaves all fell off in transit. I think the combination of plants looks rather realistic. Not in the supplies photo, but truly necessary, I added a few drops of gel cleanser to release the pendant from the mold. In the bottom photo you can see that the BD gal will also be receiving a watercolor kit that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts. This Faber Castell product has all she'll need to make some super watercolored greeting cards. Included in the kit are watercolors, a paint brush, stencils, a pen, blank cards and color pencils. I think this is a great way to get someone started in designing greeting cards. It would be good for passing time during a long trip....I think I'll get myself a kit for my next plane ride!
