The inspiration for this project came about when I was looking for something creative to do with dominos that had a more substantial design. It needed to have “Good Bones” An interesting tidbit is that Dominos are also called tiles, stones, and bones, and the word “Domino” is French for a black and white hood worn by Christian priests in winter which is probably where the name of the game derives from. Domino games are played all over the world, but in true Queen’s Ink style, instead of playing a game with them we chose to alter them and create a unique piece of art. We will use a variety of stamps to create a mosaic of collage images and we will be creating this in black and white. Patti will also show you a technique for adding color to your images should you want to do this project again.
Sue Norwood and her brother Steve designed and constructed the frame and the crown scroll work we will be adding to our piece. Truly a custom work of art. We will also have a fleur de lis design in case you don’t want a crown! The frame, scrollwork, and dominos will be provided along with stamps to share to create your domino collage.
