New leggings #caracarminastyle


********

Sometimes a mistake can turn into something beautiful...
I made a mistake in photoshop 
and turned one of my illustrations into a negative of it, 
the image looked so beautiful!!! 
I started playing with this image and got inspired!

New Cara Carmina leggings are coming this Spring!!!!!

Tarot / Cara Carmina Style






******

New project for this year:
my own tarot!!!

Wish me luck!
The tarot deck has 78 cards
each one of them full of symbols and archetypes
I've been wanting to do this for a while now
and finally, finally it will come!

I'm very inspired and excited!
a bit nervous too, I must say.
I'm hoping I will learn more about tarot and about myself
during the process of making it.
I will get inspired by the Rider-White deck
which is the one I've had for more than 15 years
and which I've been trying to learn to read.

I'm not an expert, but I do know the cards 
and I use them as oracles or guides at certain times,
Needles to say I love the imagery, I've always been fascinated by it
from the oldest decks to the very contemporary ones,
there are so many beautiful ones!!!
and now I want to make my own!

Do you like tarot?
