here. My dominoes were a slightly different size to the ones in the tutorial so I adapted my page sizes.
I decided that I would try using my alcohol inks to give a base colour. I had a practise run first and this lovely pattern emerged.
Next I used some small stamps.
I also added some T Holtz remnant rubs and added some colouring which you will see later in my finished piece.
I have a great mini calligraphy stamp I won in the Artistic stamper challenge last year and it was the perfect mini size for my book pages.
I decided my little book would be for my dear Mum for Mother's day so I had a sort through some spring like stamps and also used some apt Tim chit chat words. My Mum loves trips to country houses and gardens so I wanted to incorporate this.
It was then time to put everything together......................................here is my finished project.
I would like to enter my project into the following challenges;

I think my Hb is looking at our box games in the cupboard out of the corner of his eye now, wondering if the Scrabble or Rummikub pieces are safe.............now there's a thought! I also found a tiny box which a perfume sample came in.....hmmm...lots of ideas. I do love miniature things, as does my dear Mum. I hope she likes her little book, it was made with lots of love.
Happy 1st March everyone, what lovely times are ahead of us, nature is waking up and it is indeed a beautiful world.
Bye for now,
