Domino Domination



When I saw the theme at Alter It Monthly was 'domino domination' I had to join in! This challenge is a lot of firsts for me: First time trying this challenge, using Paperclay, and experimenting with altered art. The body of my art doll is a domino box I found at an antique store. I added some charms I was given by a fun woman I met at Portland's Art and Soul retreat, and metal flowers from ArtChix Studios. The Domino box is layered with found items, like old Christmas music, fortunes from restaurants I always save in my wallet, and the domino directions themselves.  Her hair is this lucious silk/wool blend I get at a local Seattle shop.
Thank you for checking out my little art gal.
Here's a little bit more detail of the domino box.
