You may have guessed, given my little playing card book project from the other week
that the small gel printed pieces were also cards. I mean, I have already ruined the deck as a card deck, so why not go all in? I trimmed them to fit the box from yesterday
and then painted them all with white gesso and then heavy white paint. What a mess it made on my desk! I have more to say on that but I’ll keep to the project for today
I used the technique I keep banging on about (clear gesso and spray ink) pulled with paint once dry on all the cards
and once dried, slipped them into the box.
But now what? I have many ideas.
- making a set of five 5-page booklets. But what topics? They must be inter-related.
- make it more like a word-a-day thing, with a little collage or at least focal point on each loose page
- join them al into quite a long accordion book on a single theme
I could go on, but more options make the choice harder! I think I will ruminate on it for a bit. Maybe go back to an un-shared collage project that got pushed aside. Not sure at this point. I also have to catch up on a Kate Crane class I wasn’t able to do live due to the stupid internet. Really keen on THAT so who knows that you might see next week….
Oh the suspense…
