Altered Surfaces CC3 challenge #33

So sad that we have come near the end of the CC3 challenges! #33 is Altered Surfaces as seen on page 45 of your copy of Compendium of Curiosities 3. Although I cannot disclose the technique used, I can tell you that my altered surfaces are dominoes! I also used the technique on my alpha parts word "ART".

I used a variety of distress paints, Tim's Tissue, canvas, Mod Podge and some other great stash items to create this piece!

I adhered Tim's Idea-ology Postale tissue wrap to my canvas in torn segments using a brush and matte finish Mod-Podge.
I adhered my altered dominoes with glue and then made my own hangars out of copper wire and hung my cute  embellishments!

I absolutely loved this technique and know I will find myself using it again! I also have a new love for altering dominoes!!
