Like I really need an addiction right now with painting, and getting ready for the shows, bu,t I stopped over the weekend to take a break and make these 2 domino books. I found this very relaxing and fun.
Laura Carson of Artfully Musings has a great tutorial on accordion domino books and it is much easier than you think.
I made a template for the inside images so I could just print them out then take a small piece of card stock, place it over the image and then cut it so I would have even and exact measured images for the inside pages.
These 2 books are for a trade I am in to come and thought it would be a nice little added feature. I used alcohol inks, 2 sided card stock, images from the internet resized and some gold ric rac I had laying around waiting to be used. I probably will cut my ribbon down a bit since it is way too long now but I always like to have extra so you can make a nice bow on either side.
Well that is it. Today was a busy day and I accomplished a lot. Still no car but it must be ready soon, I can only hope.
Thanks for dropping by.
PS if the link for the tutorial doesn't work just take a peek down the RHS of Laura's blog and you will find the link there.
