This week's MUSEsssss

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Michele of Digital Dissonance is just finalizing the specifications for her Summer Tarot Project over at the Recollection Parlor. I've been given the High Priestess and Judgement as my two cards in the Major Arcana. Steep learning curve, but I'm loving the richness of symbolism in the classical decks left open to my interpretation. If you haven't tried a tarot card - it's amazing how much history is involved within!
Final High Priestess
First, Second and Third Efforts
Not only have I caught the tarot bug (I hear it's contagious too) I also came down with the well ....the cloth ATC bug. Viola's gorgeous Cloth ATC's arrived in the mail earlier this week and I have to say, the texture in her work is second to none. Thank you so much Viola!! Of course, Lorraine's beautiful images of her recent cloth collages put the nail in the coffin and I was soon off to Value Village to load up on DOILIES...shaking my head all the while asking myself - Did you ever think you'd be buying used doilies Trudi? No. Not ever. Never.
Cloth Artist Trading Cards
And at about the same time I was coming down with the DOILY VIRUS, Marion invited me to participate in her annual ATC exchange - this year - ZETTI. So, I decided to complete some DOILY ZETTI's (yup - it's English).

Am loving the tarot cards! Believe me, I never thought I'd be hitting the thrift stores for doilies either! Glad to hear you have the "bug".....

Wow, great Zettis! Are these your final entries? Please let me know so that I can post a link to them in my upcoming blog swap update.
