The opening of my new mixed media class on Altered Domino Books starts tomorrow!!!
O.k. can you tell I am excited about this???
You should see the grin on my face!
I wanted to share with you a domino book I made as a memory holder to my grandmother.
I only have a few blurry photos of my grandmother, so I chose an old vintage one that I thought resembled her the most and I crafted this little book that holds many happy memories of her for me.
I used each panel to depict something that I thought was particular special about her and our childhood.
One of my favorite memories is of her teaching us how to feed the birds in the backyard. We would save the crusts of our toast and put it out for them to have for breakfast. So I used the last panel to remind me of this.
And on the back of the pages I wrote out a thank you to her for all the happy experiences I had at her home when I was a child.
I do miss my grandparents. I have very good memories of staying overnight at their home.
I am very thankful for those memories!
You may have noticed that I changed the bead color from the first photo, I was happier with the gold pearl. I also stitched a little lace bag from vintage lace and silk to keep it in.
I also want to thank Gail at Creative Workshops for giving me an opportunity to teach what I love online!
Thank you Gail!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
