Still Altering My Deck
Did you know that there are 52 cards in a deck plus two jokers? That's why I'm still altering the deck of cards I started when I took the Artful Gathering online class by Mary Jane Chadbourne called The Spoken Soul. I do a grouping of three whenever a get a chance to just play or when I need an atc or little mixed media fix :) Anyway, here are my latest three.
The backgrounds are done with Neocolor II crayon + Inktense blocks + Gelatos + Big Brush pens...no science or planning involved. Then a little torn paper, some stencilling, stamping, gesso rings and more playing around. The images are mainly from Deviant Scrap. There's a little washi tape, die cut and punched borders, punched stars, and doodling thrown in for good measure. The edges are inked with Black Big Brush pen and the sentiments are matted in black cardstock.
And I love the process as well as the results. Thanks for letting me share them with you today. That makes me happy.
Life is good; so is art.
