Domino Book


Morning, see the sunshine in my pics ;0) it's been so lovely the weather the last few days and looks like it's here to stay over the bank holiday week end to. ;0) So I have been crafting through the night so not to miss the glorious sun. I found this little idea on Terri's Blog, she in turn however, found it on Holly's Blog she has also popped a TUT on as well. I couldn't resist so I made a couple and both ladies said it was addictive lol I am inclined to agree, I was up until 5am because I had to finish them lol.


Here we have the blue one opened (this was my first) and the back. I used DIs China & Tumbled I love the colours but it was alcohol inks for the domino's Stream & Pearl. Each tiny page is distressed and I love how it turned out just with stamps & inks.


And, as I was warned, it was addictive so I made another. Only this time I took a lot more time over it. You can enlarge the pages if you like on all the photos. I have used a lot of lovely images from the Graphic Fairy I will be listing this there for Brag Monday. I will also be putting this in to the wonderful challenge that is SSS&S A Tim Holtz technique. Alcohol inks on a none porous surface is one, distressing the edges is another. I hope you like these Domino Books I really enjoyed making them even if I am dead tired now after only three hours sleep ha ha. I would also like to thank you for all your lovely comments from yesterday, it really makes me blush to know you really like what I share with you, all my bloggy friends. Love Dawn xx

Hi Dawn,
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving nice comments. I lvoe your blog and became a follower, Lola and Paris are adorable. About your questions on the pillows, I don't print on the fabric, I want them to be able to wash them, so I paint the image by hand directly on the fabric using fabric paint and very thin brushes. If you have any more questions don't hesitate and let me know.
Have a great day!
