Creative Fun!

Hello All!
I have been crafting away over this past week,
and I thought I might share a part of what I am doing....
More domino books!
I love making these!

This little girl is Parisian!

I really enjoyed creating this one, with all it's pink and glitter goodness!

The images I have been using are from Digital Collage Sheets, The Graphics's Fairy, Art Tea Life by Sandy Gordon and Narry from Etsy. Thank you to all these artists for making available inspiring images.

I adore this image of Marie Antoinette.

Here is a blue version of the same, only the inside is more modern.

It is a travel mini book....you could add some pictures and words to it.
(....this one is going to be in an upcoming giveaway).

Here is the back...I just happened to have a little suitcase charm that includes Paris on it.

Side view.

This glittery one is not quite done.

Here is the back, I am still working on the other side.

This one is one of my favorites because of the cool crackly and antiqued finish.

A little vintage lace and closure...

And an inside that is vintage on the front...

And the back.

Happy Friday!
I hope for you two days of creating something you love!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
(and yes, I did say I was having a giveaway...I will be posting about it soon, many gifts to win!)
Hugs,
Terri

Gorgeous and stunning, every one of them. :) They are as much fun to look at as they are to create. I love the glittery pink one and how the back script carries onto the edge of the domino and the accordian paper. How did you ever do that?
Hugs and happy Friday!

Terri -

These are just gorgeous! I've made several domino books as gifts and I've done miniature watercolor paintings inside. Sadly, I keep giving them away and don't have one for myself. I'll have to sit down and make one just for me - LOL! You've inspired me to do a different theme on them. All the other ones have been either Asian themed or Celestial. I love how yours turned out with the Parisian and Marie Antoinette themes.
Thank you for sharing them with us and as Jan said, it would be lovely if you could find time to post a video.

OMG, your domino books are divine! What a gorgeous idea! LOVE them all, Terri, but especially the blue one with the Eifel Tower.
I agree with Jan, a video how to make them would be great!

Have a lovely week!
Hugs,
Gaby

So beautiful and fantastic art work:)

Lena said...

Hi Terri,

I've never seen domino books before. They are so cool. I really like them, and I'm looking forward to your tutorial. They would make lovely momentos to give to friends, wouldn't they? I have a neice who is getting married in the fall. Something like this would make a lovely after the wedding gift for her friends, I think. Maybe attatched to a cord for wearing. I especially like the last one, but they're all truly lovely. You are so talented.

these are exquisite! gorgeous little masterpieces!

Diva Designs Jewelry said...

Hi, Terri. Beautiful creations!

I am looking for Sandy Gordon of ArtTeaLife. She used to have a shop at Etsy, but I can't find her there anymore. I bought a digital collage sheet from her a year or so ago, and I wanted to feature it in a tutorial for my sewn gift bags. Do you happen to know where she moved her shop, or if she is still in business at Etsy under a different shop name? Thanks!
