I love altering dominos (among many other things) and I finished this little one off last night. It was my intention to photograph Birdie-Pin for the Artygirlz ‘Alter it’ challenge, but I couldn’t get a decent pic of it no matter what I tried. So I had another go this evening whilst taking pics of a couple of ATCs I am making for a swap on an artgroup. Here’s my Birdie-Pin!

He’s so cute! I had to make a nest for him from some tiny bits of scrap hessian and a bit of blue paint. Don’t ask! I’m obsessed with paint and gel medium at the moment…

Here are the 2 ATCs I’ve completed so far – they are Summer and Autumn – I still have Winter and Spring to complete. They’re on handmade backgrounds and I have used transparent dome stickers on them which fits quite nicely with Wednesday Stamper’s ‘Transparent’ theme.

I have the task of making this set of 4 to send to Trish Bee, whom I admire greatly! So, as a sort of tribute to her and all the background techniques I have learnt being a member of NGS, I am using my handmade backgrounds for it… and they are all different! I thought it’d be lovely for her to compare my results with her techniques (IYSWIM!). Stamp on the left is Oak, Ash, Thorn from Third Coast and I can’t remember who the poppy heads is by, but the backgrounds are (left) poured paint and (right) glue resist.

    Wow Rosie they are fantastic pieces.
    Gorgeous designs. Love them.

  2. Great work Rosie – I love the effect you got with those ATC’s

  3. I love the shimmery domino – do you prime it or anything before altering it? I assume you are using the “stone/marble” ones to alter?? Wonderful ATC’s as well:)

  4. These are absolutely gorgeous! So rich and exciting in texture and tone. Hugs, Gayle.

  5. What fun you’re expressing in your pieces lately! I love all the techniques, mediums and color combos!
