Domino swap

I am in a small group where we have swaps for mini art...I love mini art. This time around we are swapping dominoes. I actually have mine finished before the deadline!!

I decided to make a domino book. I started off by covering both sides with a patterned tissue paper and when that was dry put on a thin layer of decoart clear crackle glaze. When that had dried I rubbed in some quin gold and wiped it back off just before it dried properly so it went into some of the tiny cracks...and they are tiny!!

                                           This is the back

Next I cut and scored some card from one of the prima collections (sorry can't remember which one) I used distress inks on the back and stamped some random stamps...on the front I stuck in some chit chat stickers.

 I attached the book to the dominoes with a strong glue and left it to dry....now what to do about the closure?? I added about 3 layers of embossing enamel and a resin bird onto the front..then remembered I had this kind of metal mesh..so decided to make a belly band. I wrapped it around the domino book and just twisted the ends together...done and ready to send off to my swap partner who ever that may be..just hoping they will like it.

Thanks for stopping by........................................
