Altered Thingy, Ocean




NormaJean organised a swap on zuzus forum to alter children's wooden dominoes. its been getting called the thingy swap for some reason lol. it was a nice size and shape to work with. about 1.5inches by 3 inches I think.. mine has a stand added to the back so it can stand on a shelf or something... Anyway, I did it in the theme of the ocean as inspired by Mixed media Monday.
PS .. a lot of folk are asking what I used for the texture .. its made by Daler-Rowney.. and just called "texture paste".
