Vintage Domino Mini Book

This week at Creative Inspirations Paint, we are being inspired by tutorials, whether it's one you find at CI Paint, one you found somewhere else,  or your own.  I love doing altered projects and so I wanted to try Kassi's awesome tutorial for dominos.  She used hers for a beautiful piece of jewelry but I decided to make a mini book with some vintage prints.

I used CI Paint, 'Rustic Red' and 'Sea Foam' to coordinate with my paper.  I have found these colors to be beautiful 'vintage' colors.  Here you can see the wonderful shimmer of the paint.  'Gloria' was printed on acetate so the colors of the domino could show through.

 The vintage images are from Karen at The Graphics Fairy.  If you haven't visited her yet, you'll want to do so.  She so generously shares the most amazing vintage images.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
