52 Card Pickup Workshop


This week I held a 52 card pickup workshop in my home.  Each person got a deck of playing cards and we painted, sprayed, stamped and collaged the night away!  It was fun to see all the different creative approaches to the project.  Since Valentine’s Day is just weeks away, we went with that theme for our cards.  These would make such great little Valentine Card/gifts.  They can even be easily stuck onto the front of a notecard with some double stick tape for a fun and unique card.

Then we covered with a choice of clear, white, or black gesso, followed by the paint effect of our choice.

Finally, we added the details with stamps and collage.  We used some of my newly designed digital download sheets, available here for only $1.00!

At each step of the way we traded cards, so ended up with a nice variety.

The time was far too short….but I hope we can get together to play again soon!
