Yes Sir That's My Baby




I am so excited to be able to share with you these tarot cards I collaborated on with Eleanor Hardwick for Rookie this month! I posted my favourites above, to view the whole set visit http://rookiemag.com/2012/12/destiny-unknown/





Boring anecdotes on the above photos: I am obsessed with gift wrapping. This year I really wanted to get like holographic paper but I couldn't find any so I got holographic curling ribbon and used fluorescent pink and red paper with silver cellophane. Then I got some round shiny pink gift tags and stuck holly stickers on them. NBD.

The great thing about making those Tarot cards is that I now have my own real life ones too and I had them laid out on my bed this morning.

BOOK: VALI MYERS 'NIGHT FLOWER' I bought this for myself when I was Christmas shopping for other people. It is amazing and so reasonably priced for being the most amazing thing ever. If you don't know who Vali is check out this past post http://www.minnagilligan.com/2012/03/vali-of-dolls.html Seriously, if you have a Frida Kahlo, Florence and the Machine, Bat For Lashes loving friend/relative they will love this book and thus then love Vali. It is a great Christmas gift, only $35.00, I got mine at the NGV bookshop :)

UH I tried marbling this afternoon with my marbling kit but it didn't even work and I got so sad. I even followed all the instructions so I don't even know what I did wrong. It looked great in the water though.

  2. i started marbling (paper) a couple of months ago and at the beginning I wasn't successfull as well! I think it comes with practice though. You can try with ordinary oil paints and turpentine (i even tried with acrylics and the effects were interesting)
