Good morning, its a new week and I wanted to start off by sharing a video of some Domino Books I created for a swap over at Art & Sassy ning. This is an online crafty community for people who think that crafting and creating art should be fun and full of friends. It is a place you can come to for inspiration, a place to meet other craft-minded friends and above all a place to have fun. And I am enjoying the fun swaps they have each month.
I had never heard of making a book from dominos but learned quickly by watching videos on YouTube. The challenge for the swap was to make 3 books, and when sent to the host I will receive 3 back. It will be fun to see other artists creativity.
As you see in the video I shared each book in the order I created them. I was able to try lots of techniques and was totally experimentation. My favorite adhesive is Glossy Accents by Ranger, it is transparent and by far my favorite, not only for adhering paper, rhinestones, and accents but also because I used it to create dimension on the front pages of the books. I found the pictures on Etsy after spending several days deciding what I wanted in my books, that took me longer than assembling the books. I had fun making these darling books, as a lot of you know I love miniatures so this was a fun project.
So, tell me, which one you like.
Stay tuned, I have several other challenges I will be sharing as soon as I can create a video for them before I send them away. PS This was my first video so pardon my bloops.
