Oh, oh, domino!



I made this sweet little domino book
for my dear friend's 
birthday.


I saw a lovely domino book over at Artful Affirmations, 
(http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/2011/06/more-fun-with-dominos-mixed-media.html)
and I knew I wanted to create one for
my friend's birthday.




The lovely lady on the front of the domino book 
is from Calico Collage.


 On the back, I placed an arrow because
my friend is a Sagittarius, the archer.
The arrow is wrapped in a glittery, synthetic 
cross stitching thread. 


I used silver German Dresden foil 
to wrapped 
around 
the edges of the dominoes.


Some of the images I used inside are from Sandy Gordon
at Art Tea Life, 
while other images I found
on Pinterest.
Each panel was accented with
glittery Mod Podge then 
covered with 
Glossy Accents.


I followed a tutorial put together
by Laura Carson from 
Artfully Musing. 
I love how the book turned out, and
so did the birthday girl!
