I know it’s been awhile. my baby boy was born in march, so my days have been filled with loving & caring for him & learning all I can about cloth diapering [my new hobby ‘cause I don’t have enough already!] I love washing his diapers & hanging them outside. it slows the pace of life down… [more to come on cloth diapering!]
sometimes when he naps I head for the studio… I mentioned last post that I was addicted to altering playing cards. well, that was yesterday’s project. more cards!!!=) this deck was awesome because the back was already a stellar design, black & hot pink! so here’s a look at my gypsy deck:::
this was the first project using my new paints! which I love!=)
[more colors coming soon!]
I would love to create custom decks [themed] & sell them in my etsy shop. so I’m thinking some fave authors quotes, & band lyrics. I can also include pictures, like little brag books.
I would love to hear your thoughts!=)

awhile ago someone had asked me for some Bible verses on index cards. in my search for creative inspiration in this project, I came across this amazing tutorial & challenge to alter a deck of playing cards… Inspirational Quotes Deck Tutorial
52 cards get very thick after glue, papers & paint are applied! they won’t be fitting back into their original box! =)
I punched holes into the top left corner to put them on a ring…
front of cards.
paper covered backs…
an eclectic, deck of cards.
I am now in love with altering playing cards! they make a special little gift for anyone! you can put poems, quotes, pictures, what you love about a person, etc. on them!
have an amazing week! <3
