So today, I found an old blank book with the first few pages ripped out, my Blue Owl Lenormand with verses that I hate, a glue stick and some highlighters and thought I'd make a start. But those verses were SO dreadful, I couldn't face them, so I cut out little bits of paper and drew my own playing card insets and glued them to the cards before gluing the cards into the book.
My work area (I don't have a table, so it was in the middle of the living room floor. I bought the bears at a charity shop today. Well! I had to. If you'd seen the looks on their faces you'd have bought them, too. Monkey has a weighted bottom -- I know how he feels -- and makes a very effective page holder.):
The cover of the book. (After all the playing cards are glued in, it won't lie flat. This is what it looks like!):
Title page (note ripped out section -- no point spending money on a new book for a little project like this! Plus that would mean I'd have to get dressed and go buy it. Ugh.):
Playing card insets in production:
A finished page before notes start being added:
And some pages with a few color-coded notes on (yes, that is a chocolate smear on the Rider page):
This was fun to do and I may keep adding notes to it, if I don't lose interest. :) That's how I roll. When I am feeling brave, I may do a few drawings on the left page like Makiel did...
Has anyone else done anything like this?
