There’s No Way To Mend a Broken Heart Pendant

Valentine’s Day crafting should be easy and fun. I mean, it’s just hearts. Heart projects aren’t hard, right?

Wrong.

I started a Valentine’s Day series this year, but with a new twist – all the projects have to include aqua, my favorite shade of blue. “I’ll show all you pink and red Valentine’s Day people! You will bow to my aqua heart crafts!” I absolutely love Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and Martha Stewart microbeads, so I decided to merge the two into some fun heart pendants. The picture in my mind was definitely different than what resulted.

Exhibit A – Pendant on the right with a white background. The white showed through the beads, which I didn’t like – and apparently I didn’t use enough Mod Podge, because the beads started crumbling off. I decided to try again.

Exhibit B – Pendant on the left got a basecoat of aqua before the beads. “Victorious!” I thought. Then the Dimensional Magic was applied to the top. The result? A surface very similar to the Martian river beds. The texture isn’t good, and it certainly doesn’t look good.
