Yesterday’s News…Tomorrow’s Tarot…

PREVIOUS|MASTER LIST|NEXT

Morgan Drake Eckstein was the wrangler for this hop and the theme thrown at us was:

The idea is to take some photos and\/or artwork that someone else has done, and turn it into a Tarot card. Yes, I am assuming that you get junk mail and\/or magazines. If not, there is plenty of random photos on the internet, including stock photo sites. And then, there are the meme making sites.

So… as it turns out… my junk mail is almost down to zero these days. The good news is that mail preference service works… The bad news is… the only thing that lands through my letterbox these days is takeaway flyers and menus and that didn’t provide the ingredients to give me any decent food for inspiration… A swift dip into my email inbox didn’t turn up anything either… I guess the new year spam cull was effective… So as I sat scratching my head, Mr S came home and tossed down the daily newspaper that had been left for dead on his table at work…

I opened it up and hit gold! (and I am a complete Muppet and threw the daily paper away without taking note of where this is… d’oh! ) but what a gift… Pretty much the High Priestess with no skills required… Mmm… would that be too lazy… mmm…

Tarot Junk 1

So I made my way through the rest of the pages and yes, no, maybe… mmm… sheets spread all over the room and narrowed down to a couple of images that caught my eye…

This one…

Tarot Junk 2

Now you see… I liked this one… but I just couldn’t decide… it seemed to be the hybrid offspring spawned by The Lovers on a 3 of Wands honeymoon… mmm…

Then this one…

Tarot Junk 3

Which made me laugh…

The Hanged Man’s Wife…

She laughs away merrily… oh! My silly husband… always hanging out by the pool and being such a martyr about it… hanging by his feet when it’s so much sweeter to hang your feet and let them dangle in the water…

But then I did what many women have done throughout the ages… Looked around at all the possibles strewn across the floor and then picked up the first one that I’d tried on and twirled around… asked… Does my bum look big in this… Then slipped on a few accessories…

Ta da!!!

From daily paper to evening wear…

Tarot Junk Moon

And I would have stopped there but a few days later I did get some junk mail through the door that was too cute to resist… The sign with ‘Find The Gap’ amused me… and so I turned the hedgehog into a Page of Pents student setting off to work his way around the world on his gap year…

    • Thanks 🙂 Yes he is adorable… I have actually kept the original piece and tucked it into the back of my diary where I keep all my bills that need to be paid, so he can make me smile as I pay them off! 😀

  4. Love the colours on the Moon card, and the wee page is simply adorable, but my favourite is the Hanged Man’s Wife. Think I would like to see what you might do creating your own deck…interesting ideas for new cards!

  5. Oh my, the Page of Pentacles on his gap year is uber cute, and also such a memory jogger – of my gap year, and of my grandma help hedgehogs each winter. I also loved the Hanged Man’s Wife – too funny! 🙂

    • Happy to have jogged your memory 😀 It’s been a while since I’ve seen a hedgehog… I’m always surprised at how fast they can move. Yes… Mrs XII is quite funny… I may hang out with her again 😉
