Altered Domino Book










My first altered domino and it is an altered domino book!
The images were offered as a free kit from Rick St Dennis  (Thank You) for a limited time which I got via Leigh's blog,where there
is also a link to the tutorial on the kit from Monique. 
(Thank You) The kit was a collaboration between Rick St Dennis and Monique and you can read all about it on Leigh's blog,


It was a real learning experience to make this. 
Not only had I not altered even one domino before 
I had to learn how to make the book using the tutorial. 
There are things that I will do differently if I do this again,
for instance  I definitely would not use images on both 
sides again.

I opted to use alcohol inks to alter my dominoes, the images on the covers are attached by and coated with 
Claudine Hellmuth Medium. I added some little accents for interest. I coloured the images using 
polychromos pencils using a minimum of 
colours. And added blue ribbon
The images are very small which was a bit challenging but 
they are all so lovely it was also very enjoyable.
