Here is the latest in the altered book I'm working on:
This was a lot of fun, but not without its problems. I had originally made a gel transfer where the woman's image is, but the transfer was too dark for the background and didn't show. I pulled it off and was left with an ugly spot, which I covered with gesso and the picture. Then I covered it with more blue paint and wiped off the excess so she'd show through.
The cards are taken from an assortment of old Tarot decks and Loteria cards - crinkled, crumpled, smeared and smudged for age.
