52 Card Pickup
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 
10 AM to 5 PM
Lunch 12 PM to 1 PM Included
A deck...52 cards. A year...52 weeks. Make the most of this synchronicity by creating a one-of-a-kind,
mixed media journal that you can use to document a year in your life, week by week.
In this workshop we will start by taking an ordinary deck of playing cards and, by using paint and paper,
end up with a unique and personal journal... small in size but large in impact.
Along the way you will learn the secrets of creating textured and layered backgrounds,
the basics of collage composition, and tricks of the trade to tie it all together.
The uses for your creation are limited only by your imagination and
can include a place to hold your weekly journaling, goals, documentation, affirmations,drawings,
photographs, thoughts, love notes, or anything else. In this workshop, you will always be dealt a winning hand.
