 I am so ecited to be part of this blog hop!  I LOVE ETI RESIN!  I hhave used it for years with jewelry and trays ut I have a friend, Gavyn Sky, that does amazing things on HUGE canvas with resin.  He inspries me to use resin in different ways.  So here is what I did on a 5" X 7" canvas.
I layered Embossing Paste and several different colors of Pearl Acrylic Paints.  I then placed the focal point on the canvas.  (It is a bezel filled with various items and filled with ETI Jewelry Resin)
Next I mixed some ETI according to directions.  This is IMPORTANT!  I started to drizzle the Resin over ther canvas.
It is so fun to see how it all starts to blend and change.  I took one of the stir sticks and started playing with the textures and swirling the liquids.

I then mixed in some Mica in a couple of colors and added them on top of the other resin.  I did this in small amounts so as to not have resin run everywhere.  After it sat for a about an hour I poured a bit more clear resin on.
It spread the mica/glitter out and added the shimmer I wanted without huge areas of the Mica.  I then added some of the additional embellishments.
I added a border of Connie Crystal Mesh and some little bottles filled with liquid.  No glue needed as these objects adhere to the resin.  After it was all dry I added a final layer of ETI Resin!
This is my finished ETI Resin Mini Art Piece!

Happy Creating!
