Altered Playing Cards....
The other day I was browsing through Pinterest (Looove Pinterest) looking to be inspired, and I came across the idea for creating some mixed media art using a deck of playing cards. Now, we have heaps of old playing cards, as my youngest had a thing for them at one time, so I new there would be some laying around. Anyway...I thought I would start altering my own deck. So easy, quick and fun too! I think I might make these my Affirmation Cards...I can keep them as a deck to look through or even use them in my journal books etc.
Above: An old deck we got when we went to the States and stayed at San Fransisco. These ones have some lovely memories!
Above: First get some gesso and paint a few of them.....This is the worst part as they take ages to dry! So make sure you do a few at a time!
Above: I had recently made my own stickers using parts of some of my abstract paintings! Cool hey! (The are the semi circle bits on them). I love an inspiring quote or affirmation too! I really just slapped some paint on and maybe stencilled something on too. Something quick and easy.
Above: More paint, stamps, stickers I made (these were ones I just made from digital papers) and a butterfly. Love my butterflies!
Above: Again, I cut my handmade stickers in half, some paint, stamp, butterfly and a word.
