My first thought when the theme of music came up was either to do something pertaining to two of the worlds most famous artists both dead Freddie Mercury & Queen or Elvis "the King" Presley.

I decided in the end to go with more simply theme with which to portray " Madam Butterfly "

I hope folks like my entry

My first Altered Domino

It's actually two mini dominos made into a book.
On Zuzu's forum there's an altered domino swap. I hadn't ever tried but enjoyed watching the master at work when she was altering similar such items.....
I wasn't too happy with the finished article but my mentor and inspiration guru has convinced me that the finished article is OK ....

I'll let you be the judge of that ;-)

Let's hope the recipient BB a fellow crafter and forum member will like it even though she's not too keen on oriental.
