Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Geisha Inspired Domino Book


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.
