Day 10: The North Pole by Sandra Y!

Season's Greetings Dominoians!

Welcome to DominoART's 24 Days of Christmas Festival! 
You guys are in for a real treat coz  Sandra Y joins us today for Day 10 to share another one of her unbelievably creative domino creations :0)

Santa Claus: I glued a half-nutshell on my domino, and I wrapped it with scraps of red tissue paper. The “secret” of this technique consists in adding some glue during the process, (like you'd do with  “papier maché”). Two pips of the domino figure are the eyes, the others are hidden with the nose (half bead), and the belt. The hands are parts of a Quickutz die-cut.  Eyebrows, fur on the costume and belt were made with textured paste.

Mrs Claus:  She was created following the same process.  I glued two half beads on her body - Yes, I know, I have exaggerated their size a bit, but it was by Santa’s explicit request ;D - and a little bead for the nose, painted with gesso first, then acrylic paint.  I wrapped her with scraps of red tissue paper to form the dress. The fur on the dress and the hair were made with textured paste. The “Makeup” was applied with a marker.

The penguin (my favorite):  A chess pawn was painted with black and white gesso.  I then glued the feet (punched leaves), the “nose” and one wing (scraps of cardstock).

 Surroundings: The North Pole sign is made of FIMO.  The outdoor scene was sponged with distress faded jean ink, and the penguins stamps come from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. The snow is made with textured paste.

Here's a closer look at the amazing details Sandra put into her North Pole creation!

See you again tomorrow for more Christmas DominoART creations!
