Welcome back! In Step 1. we learned how to make it easy on yourself.
Step 2. is all about letting go and having fun. The result will be a set of 52 cards with a decorative backing and which are prepped with a base layer (or two or three) of paint.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to creating your base layer for your cards. In this video I show you the most basic and simplest way to create your base.
- Paint Brush or Old Credit Card
- Your Favorite Acrylic Paints
- Jug o' water
- Texture Tools - think bubble wrap, the inner ribbed layer of cardboard, the plastic mesh bags those cute little clementines come in.
TIPS: At this point in the process it's time to dive in, brave one. Give yourself permission to get messay, let go....and HAVE FUN! Need a little help? Head on over to the Card Deck Swap Facebook Group for support & inspiration!
