Getting over iMovie fears!
My fearlessness does not just apply to resin and power tools, it could also apply to software. We have an older version of iMovie and I can not say that it is easy to use! I wanted to take photos from my first Ice Resin photo tutorial and turn it into a slideshow with music. I thought it would be easy but getting timing right... Ugh! But, here is it:
I did it! My back hated every second of it but I did it. Learning software with a project in mind is the only way for me to learn. It keeps me focused and kind of gives me a deadline.
So even though my purple resin skull is not perfect, I did add some Pearl Ex powdered pigment, a purply one, to the surface which really brought out the back purple colour and created this stunning sheen. Then I varnished it and will be turning it into a necklace for myself today.
I have decided that I would like every day to be a little crafty. Once a week just isn't enough. Crafting this like this is helping me break through anxiety issues I have, makes me smile and laugh (which in February is quite the feat) and... I just love it. It is so much fun.
Every time I wear this pendant, it will remind me to not let fear keep me small.
