For the Love of Dominoes

Do you find miniature works of art
enchanting?
I was totally mesmerized
the first time I saw
a book made from
two dominoes.
I've since made a few,
this most recent for a Valentine swap
at
 
I think it's all the fussy little detail required
working on such a small palette
that interests me.
(You can click on the photos
for more detail.)
 From The Heart
The cover is embellished
with tiny pearls.
The rose images are highlighted with
Stickles & Liquid Pearls.
 Inside of book
The images I chose are from
I used Stickles, Liquid Pearls,
tiny beads and bling
to accent.
Covers
I used a shabby rose fabric trim
around the outside
of the dominoes.
Probably the most difficult part
of making this
was adding the tiniest ever
pink pearls to the center
of each rose.
 
Pieces of vintage seam binding
serve as closures.
 
I have a few more Valentine projects
in the works
as well as some image freebies
and pictures of my antique
valentine collection to share.
I hope you'll stop back!

Dear JoAnne
This little domino book is just amazing!
I can't imagine working on something so delicately small but you have achieved something that I could not.
It is exquisite!
