Oracle Deck Flip Thru
Today I wanted to share a video of my Oracle deck. I started this deck in October of last year before I had found Effy Wild and the Moonshine class. I had been taking classes with byBun and had developed this cool painterly way of doing backgrounds that I really enjoyed and had decided to make these cards to see what happened. The cards were so cool that I started to put affirmations on front and using those in my day to day activities. I made the box below to hold them in. And I challenged myself to make 100 of them. That was a pretty big project but I love these cards and this project enough to want to teach it and if I made 100 of them then I felt I had a good level of expertise of the format to teach it to others well. I actually have a fully developed ‘paint and sip’ style of class that I have demoed to a couple groups already and had really positive feedback on. I was going to launch it in January but I couldn’t dedicate the times to the parties so it has been pushed back. I am now considering online format.
I painted both sides of the cards with the same color scheme but different painting techniques so that there was a clear difference. On the front of the deck I ended up taking the Oracle deck that Effy Wild provides to her students in the Moonshine class. (Effy has an amazing class spread – check out her site). I used gloss medium on the cards to adhere the oracle deck to the affirmation cards, I also went back through the entire deck and waxed the cards so they don’t stick. It was a long project but I am so happy with the outcome.
Oracle Deck Box
I created this box for my cards so that I had something beautiful and coordinated. The box came from joggles. The hardware from Home Depot. The inside is cardstock. Unfortunately I could not get my wax seal to display clearly but that is a wax seal for VS1 Studios which is my art hobby…hopefully business…I am working on it.
I love this box. I love it so much I made 3 more of them to either sell or gift as hostess gifts to anyone who books a party with me for the class I haven’t yet launched…someday….
Anyway that’s it for me today, enjoy…maybe my next video will have sound.
