I used to enjoy crafting as a child. My friend and I made scrapbooks, cutting out dogs and cats from old cards and newspapers. We knitted with scraps of wool or unpicked jumpers. I learnt to crochet and have made many things. I have now moved on to scrapbooking, card makings atc's altered tins, mini books tag books I have also taken part in three circle journals

Altered childrens Dominoes
I found a box of wooden children dominoes in a charity shop, well you know how it is I thought they were just right to alter, well I had them quite some time and done nothing at all with them so decided to have a little play.
The picture on the right shows the front of the dominoes before altering
The backs of the dominoes before altering
I painted the dominoes with acrylic paints ((yellow ochre)I then stamped script in black archival ink over the top of paint both back and front. I then added embellishments. I have yet to add the ribbons I will use them to hang from my craft bag but they could be necklaces, brooches, key rings, bag bling, mobiles and many more things
I also had a go altering some dressmakers pins I have altered and used these before, they are fab additions to cards and scrapbook layouts
