i participated in my first inspiration deck swap and had a great time creating these little bits of aspirations. using a regular card deck, gesso one side then proceed to adorn it with any element you find around your studio. i looked to the internet for inspirational quotes, sized them and printed them out. glue one onto each card, decorate some more and voila, you are finished. i put my name/blog/web address on the back and sent them off to be swapped. i can't wait to receive my little deck of inspiration. it will be wonderful getting a new piece of art to look at every day for 52 days. don't you wish you would have played too?
