Altered Dominos - my first attempt.

I bought the dominos at Ross for Less thinking if I messed up terribly I would not be wasting too much money.  Next I researched on how to make these altered dominos, and , well I searched, Pintrest and various other sites for instructions and of course some inspiration . 

The best tutorials I found was on
another very easy one on
and I watched many many many youtube tutorials.   It is nice to find so many different methods of learning aside from a formal classroom.  Many thanks to the artists who provide free instructions for all of us to learn and create.

My first attempt yielded some cute stuff, some messes (air bubbles).  I can use for magnets, necklaces and canvas art.  My next attempt will be actually drilling holes, this first batch has bails glued on to the back.   I used permanent felt tips, alcohol ink, mod podge to attach pictures and then staz on for the stamping.  I did not use resin, I used Diamond Glaze and next I will try the modpodge version. 

Some Christmas Gifts??
