Day 11: Spookty ATC featuring a Doublecross Domino by DominoARTist Val S!

Happy Spooktacular Weekend to you all and welcome back for Day 11 of DominoART's 31 Days of Halloween Scarefest blog hop with Smeared and Smudged!

You probably arrived here from Creepy Glowbugg but if you visited DominoART first and would like to start the hop from the beginning then got to Terra's blog, all the info about the daily Scavenger Hunt prizes can be found there too!  The entire blog roll is over there on the right side bar if you get lost along the way!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful compliments you left me on my Tribute to Poe yesterday :0)

Now for Day 11's project by one of my DTs, DominoARTist Val S, and my Mom :0)

I know you're all enjoying finding out about all the kinds of dominoes so here's some info on today's altered game piece, a Doublecross!  This one is made of light coloured wood and has 3 dot sections instead of 2 and is tall and narrow like a bandaid.  Unforunately it was discontinued many moons ago but they pop up on evilBay occasionally!

Those of you looking for regular standard white dominoes....you want the ones that come in tins and are called Jumbo for some unknown reason coz the BIG ones are called Super-sized, and you can find them in stores like Target, pharmacies and even in the toy section of your grocery stores as well as evilBay.  The ones in wooden boxes are generally the black wooden dominoes and those are fun to alter too!
