Geisha Inspired Domino Book

FRONT

I used metal leaves which are painted with alcohol ink, Lucite leaf vases and beads to decorate the front.  I purchased the Lucite leaves at Collage Stuff.  The color worked for what I was doing but it would be very easy to change their color by painting them with alcohol ink.  There is a hole at the end of the leaf.  The beads are strung on thread which I then pulled through the hole and secured with a small dab of Glossy Accents.

The sides of the domino are wrapped with ribbon.

One day I am going to sit down and make a domino book by following your instructions. If I manage it I will send you a photo so you can have a big laugh. I so wish I was as talented in my little finger as you. A true marvel.
