Original Thoughts and Post:
October 6th 2011: I have always had a major fascination with tarot/inspirational/oracle cards… and I love collecting different decks as well. One of my favorites is the Lo Scarabeo Dream Deck. I’ve thought about designing my own deck for a while now, and finally got around to making my first card today. The cards are not going to be traditional at all… it will be more like inspiration cards and I will be breaking the unwritten rule of keeping them all vertical. Final images will be mixed mediums including all of my own photography, paintings, photo transfers, ink, digital photography & digital editing, etc.
Making of the cards:
All cards are made from Renee Keith’s photography and/or artwork. After a photo shoot, or photo of the art piece, she will print the digital image onto rice paper using an inkjet printer. Then images are transferred to watercolor paper and photographed again. From there, both images will be opened in Photoshop, overlaid on top of each other so that fine detail can be brought back in focus areas. If you look carefully at the image below, you will see the wrinkles and paper texture as well as the face being crisp showing the fine detail of the original image.
The bags are also made by Renee Keith. A select image is printed onto transfer paper then ironed on cotton fabric. Buttons are usually found at vintage stores, gem fairs, or purchased at Hobby Lobby. You can purchase a bag separate upon request.
