You see, odd as it is since I have older kids, there doesn't seem to be a deck of cards in the house that is intact. This perplexes me to no end and drives me a little nuts quite honestly (I'm one of those types who can't stand it when a game piece or puzzle piece is missing. Very challenging as a preschool teacher.) I decided to gather up the remains of several card decks and get creative with them. Oddly enough, I have 51 cards...figures.
I finished up a swap last week that was SO fun. The hostess made a list of techniques, prompts, etc. and randomly assigned us 3 numbers to use on each card. I borrowed many of her ideas for my inspiration deck list. I also found many of them in a book I have Surface Treatment Workshop: Mixed Media Techniques. Cool book.
The first card was finished last night. It didn't really turn out as I had envisioned - can't say I love it - but perhaps it will offer some inspiration down the road.
Inspiration Deck Checklist:
#1: Layers of holes
#32: Use a gelli print
#47: Make it dimensional (add foam dots, etc.)
I really just started out with #1 but the second two fell into place. 9 more cards are on my desk all gesso'd and ready to go. :)
Have a great weekend!
