There is a giveaway here, so be sure to read through to find out the details!
I didn't "alter" Oz, but I did try something new. I had Wizard of Oz (WOO) domino images from Gecko Galz so I decided to make a domino mini book using them. I love these images because they come from a variety of versions of this book! When you think of the WOO, you think of blue gingham, Judy Garland, , techni-color movie, etc. But there are so many other images and ideas out there.
Anyway, since these were domino images, I thought I would actually work with dominos. First, I used alcohol ink to color the dominos. In the end, the green and grey ink is barely seen since I ended up covering it with red glitter. **Hope you like the images, I applied a bit of Techni-Color myself, to ramp up the color a bit since my pics were a bit flat. Made everything a bit surreal!
I added the black and white pictures of Dorothy and the Wicked Witch onto the dominos, painted the edges of the dominos with glue then covered them with red glitter. Once covered, I added a thick layer of Glossy Accents over the images to seal them in. I also, once dry, coated the glitter in a thin layer of it so it wouldn't flake off when handled.
Next, I added the gold beads, as feet and as a topper. The green ball is a stick pin head that was cut and glued to add a bit of "Emerald" to the piece.
Now for the inside.
For the "Wicked" side, with the Wicked Witch on the cover, I used a newsprint paper as the background. I used images that portrayed the Witch and her side of things. The first image is of her and Glinda, embracing. Then it progresses to bad deeds. The phrase stamped is "I'll Get You My Pretty." I also added a brass broom and the word "sleep" under a scene in the poppies.
I added black seam binding to the back of the dominoes, then glued the accordion pages to them.
I wasn't sure at first how this was going to turn out. It is my first attempt at a domino book, as well as my first time using Wizard of Oz as my subject. I was thrilled to try since it is one of my favorite books and I am a Children's Librarian! I love all projects made with books as the theme!
