This is a great art journaling site with weekly themes and this week the theme is….playing cards! This winter, for some unknown reason playing cards seem to be very appealing as a highly portable, fun and yes, cost effective art media. And because Spanish playing cards are so inexpensive at the mercados y la papelerias I’m taking multiple sets back.
I’ve even gessoed some using black and white gessoed for my next Artist Way grupo or a 52 Card Pick Up painting experience! I like to keep my options open.
Since it’s always the prep work that takes time I like to do this kind of time consuming prep while watching television con subtituladas!
