VA174 - QUEST 52 – Altered Playing Card Journal

$ 135  


Join the Quest. We will start by making the chipboard, 3D pocket triangle which we will fill with a few scrolls of written ‘personal quests’. The pocket will be adhered to the decorated cover we make. The cover will include a glass encased title that is wrapped and mounted. Our journals will hold 52 altered playing cards that we will alter using various mixed media techniques, both tried and new. We will work four cards at a time with a similar twist. Before we know it, our quest for 52 will hopefully have been met. Watch my blog for ideas and inspiration pertaining to Quest 52.
