 DominoART Challenge #5
Altered Game Boards
Use any Game and Any Theme
Sponsored by

I challenge you to alter and create something wonderful with the actual game board that comes with board games like Scrabble and Monopoly and you're not restricted to using the cardboard versions either!  Some board games like Chess have wooden game boards and travel games have magnetic game boards.  You can alter any game board and use whatever imagery you want.  I would like to see at least one other game piece incorporated into your creations too!
This challenge will end July 17 at 7pm PST so you've got plenty of time to enter!


To get you started here's one of my creations that I made a few years ago when Leigh's Altered World of Game Pieces was a feature @ The Stamper's Mall until they sadly closed their doors.
