Show Me Lenormand
“Show Me Lenormand” is a cartomancy deck created using a process art technique. When using a process technique, it is much like a science experiement. You develop a hypothesis of how you are going to create it, allow that process to occur and go with the flow. Sometimes the results are expected, while other times, you’ll be taken completely by surprise by the end result.
This series of mini art images utilized a simple technique of cutting the watercolor paper down to a workable size, dip in water and then drip, splatter, paint on watercolor paint. I then allowed them to dry completely before working the new images on the paper.
Pulling out a variety of markers and ink pens of all sizes, I set about to use my imagination of "seeing" images hidden within the cards. For this I am featuring the Bird card in a step by step development.
