a box of dominoes i found in the ‘everything- but what you want’ draw which i am targeting for emptying, as i need it for another purpose. Ok one day i might finally have all my crafty gear organised exactly where i need it – i’m not holding my breath, coz that involves a ‘dream studio’ instead of the corner of the bedroom where my ‘studio – come cramped corner’ currently resides. Back to the dominoes, they are the first of many mixed media projects I’m going to have to plough through to get that studio and all the posh gear that i want in it!  Ive probably had them sitting in that draw for several years now, so its time they went – so i thought id use up some other mixed media supplies, and alter them into some pendents.

heres the progress so far

sanded and coated in gesso along with some other canvasses i had lying around – coz i tipped too much gesso out of the tub (waste-not-want-not!)

covered in scrapbook papers and page texts, and a little stamping added in for good measure.

i’ve left them up to dry overnight, as they were textural on the back, so i used self-levelling gel to adhere the papers on in the hope that it will straighten it out!

I still had half an hour of ‘studio time’ (and i hate to waste it!),  so since i hadn’t had a chance before now i popped the metal clay pieces from last week  out of there moulds to see how they were. I spent some time cleaning them up, with a emery board so there all ready to go into the kiln – as soon as i get brave enough to fire it up – this is them so far –

hopefully ill be able to turn them into some fancy jewellery pieces soon.

thats it for now, but don’t forget to visit the stamping ground so you can find all the other desks.

love and cyber hugs, see you all real soon!

  4. Wow, am fascinated by the dominoes, I have a couple pendants my sissy made for me at least ten years ago. I hadn’t thought to ‘wrap’ them, they look really pretty!

  5. Loving the works in progress- very keen to see how the dominoes end up! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xxx

    Have a great week

  7. Love the activity. What are you going to do with the domino pieces. Trade like ATCs. If that’s the case, I think we need a group. LOL I’d join… and buy dominos just to play. Can’t wait to see them all finished.

    Those molded pieces came out great! Fire up that kiln and show us a finished product. Can’t wait to see. Creative Blessings! ~Kelly #43
