The Art of Domino...

I joined another great swap recently to expand my crafting experience. I signed up for a domino booklet swap for my group Keepers of Avalon on Swap-bot. I have never made a domino booklet before so this was an exciting as well as a learning process for me.

I used acrylic paint and Distress paints on the domino. I then covered the surface with Rock Candy Distress crackle paint. The images are waterslide transfers that I glazed over with Glossy Accents. The pages are tea-stained paper I stained with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearl Mists. I also used stamps with Staz-on inks for design as well. The last touch is some cabbage ribbon to tie it all together.

I may not have gotten everything right this first time, but all in all I do not think it is a bad first effort. I cannot wait to try more in the future. Thank you for coming along with me on my creative journey today. Until next time happy crafting!


  1. Cute! I've never even heard of a domino booklet. Yours looks like it came out wonderful!

  2. Thank you so much, I really appreciate that! I had never really heard of one either until a friend on SB mention hosting a swap for one and it sounded like fun! :-)

  3. this is stunning (as is all your artwork!) I love the effect of the crackled paint!
