Scrabble and Domino necklaces

Hi friends! I thought I would try something different again. I took an on-line Altered Domino class taught by Zinnia Galliher @ Roses On My Table. Her teaching is very clear and easy to understand. Once I got started I couldn't stop! :)

I made some with the burgundy colored scrabble tiles and then some with the natural wood. I can't make up my mind which I like best.
I love birds can you tell? Double click to see the birdies up close. All the images are from an Etsy shop called Charmed Memory Collage. She has wonderful images, for dominoes, scrabble pieces, perfume labels, postcards, tags, all kinds of assorted sizes.

This is a domino with a wonderful Waterhouse image. I haven't glued the bail onto it yet but I wanted to show you.

This is the first one that I did and you can tell? :[ I thought I would show you anyway.

Does it make you want to try it? It's a lot of fun, my friends. Now you know what I'm going to do with all of those dominoes that I bought at that garage sale. I have a lot of scrabble pieces too. Don't be afraid to try it. It's a lot easier than soldering, I'll tell you that!

What did you do this weekend? I wanted to go garage saling but didn't do it. Maybe next weekend. I would like to go to the Picadilly again. Whatever you did or are going to do, I hope you enjoyed it. I would love to hear about it. I'm not being nosey...really.

Talk to you soon.

They're gorgeous, and since they're so tiny, I guess they can be addicting to make! Patsy from
