Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween - Domino Skeleton Book by Sandra!

Howzit Dominoians!

On our 4th Day of Halloween Sandra is here to WOW you with her absolutely spooktacular Domino Book! Sandra is a reader of the DominoART Blog and one of my fellow team mates on the Third Coast Creative Coterie design team! You can see more of Sandra's creations on her Blog!

Sandra fell in love with altering dominoes when she came across a domino book by Laura Carson and decided to give it a try and this is her first domino project based on the tutorial she followed! Awesome job Sandra on your first altered domino creation!

The dominoes she used measure 1,5 x 0,75 inches - ( 4 x 2 cm) and this is how she went about creating her little book:

Domino covers:
Sandra colored them with Alcohol inks and then covered them with a piece of cardstock, and a lot of different UTEE powders. While the UTEE was still warm she attached a plaster skull to the front cover. The skull was made from a silicon mold of her son's pirate toy! The sides of the dominoes are wrapped in ribbon.

Front of the inside pages:

First and last pages:
The words 'Happy' and 'Halloween' are part of a border stamp from Purple Onions. The diamonds border is by Ana Griffin and the flourishes are part of an EK Success magnetic set.

2nd page:
The pumpkins character is from the Graphic 45 - Wizard of Oz collection and Sandra coloured it with color pencils. Source of the green flourishes is unknown.

3rd and 5th pages:
The witch and Jack o’ lantern pictures were found on the web.

4th page:
Spider web and 'creepy' word are by Inkadinkado and the Spider is by Hero Arts.
Sandra accentuated the Spiders eyes with red Stickles glitter glue.

6th page:
The Skull and potion books are also by Inkadinkado.

All the pages were edged with acrylic gold paint.

Back of the inside pages:

She used part of a prima mask and stamped geometric motives (Artemio and Compagnie des Elfes) onto the background with black ink and acrylic gold paint.
Sandra says she had a lot of fun creating this mini book!

Thanks for sharing it with us during DominoART's 31 Days of Halloween Sandra!

Stay tuned for Day 5 to see what eye-candy I've cooked up in my cauldron for you ;0)
