Domino giveaway ...


Measurements: 1" x 2" pendant on an 24" chain (gold plated)
mixed media (painting, collage, glaze effects)
Color Theme: gold, tan, chocolate, caramel, and beige

Title: City on Our Knees

Ingredients: domino, acrylic paints (many many many layers), antique crackle medium, glazes, collage image, ric rac ribbon, findings, metallic paint, and love

I have taken an actual game piece domino (not a bead or craft store domino) and created a very lush finish with multiple paint layers, crackle medium and various glazes. There is a rich and glorious textural depth to my handpainting. The collaged image is from a collection created by Debrina Pratt (an amazing artist!). I have added details along the edges and all the dots are painted with metallic leaf. The back side is as pretty as the front - so the pendant is reversible!

City on Our Knees - Toby Mac

If you gotta start somewhere why not here? If you gotta start sometime why not now? If we gotta start somewhere I say here. If we gotta start sometime I say now. Through the fog there is hope in the distance. From cathedrals to third world missions - Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave...

~~~~~ GIVE - A - WAY ~~~~~

Just post a comment here. In two weeks (September 15th-ish) I will randomly pick a 'post~er' from a 'hat' and announce the winner here (at which time I will need said winner's mailing address). I hope you'll listen to Toby Mac's song while you're here. I have met him on three occasions - he is genuine.

Please take a lookie loo at all the new domino

pendants in my ETSY STORE - :)

MORE MORE MORE coming THIS week!

~joy! Katey
