Altered Domino Keychain
This is my first altered domino keychain, made for a swap in a group I belong to at flickr (see my art gallery link at right). The theme was travel, and could be a destination, so I selected Paris. The front is is a collage image featuring the Eiffel Tower, a blue jeweled embellishment, glitter, and diamond glaze, which gives it a shiny and protective coat. The sides have been covered in silver foil tape. The back is alcohol inks and vintage text, "Ou est la Tour Eiffel?" (Where is the Eiffel Tower?), beads, + diamond glaze. I added beads and a postcard charm (slightly altered w/alcohol inks) to the chain. It was a lot of fun to make.
