A fresh thread with lots of room for expansion!
Including trimmed Tarot, Oracles, and newly added; Primped/Pimped/Altered decks
If you notice any links no longer working please let me know, thanks.

When you post your scan it would be lovely if you:
include a Before and After and a back,

Cool


I wanted to thank Marianne for her lovely pics of the Arthurian Keeper of Words trimmed tarot. I was inspired to try my own version: I kept the upper and lower borders, as this deck is probably the only one where I enjoy key words--I am re-reading Mary Stewart's Merlin books and actually knew what the firedrake card meant hurrah! and I trimmed off all borders completely even the inner ones and rounded off corners. The cards are now shaped like biscotti. They bring to mind silver slivers of a magical realm....or mirror shards from an enchanted vision....this wax poetic me thinks! If anyone is interested I shall be delighted to post some pics. The irony is that I do it through a site call tiny something and the pictures after scanning come out gigantic. Well, size don't matter do it?
Really even if the cards are now an odd size they are truly improved IMHO all of a sudden the magic just leapt right out at me, something which seems to happen every time I trim a deck! Well, back to work-not finished yet

Thank you for the warm welcome! I am glad to be here
I scanned 3 pictures and a back--luckily the backs just barely preserved the swirl, I hadn't taken it into account as I busily trimmed away at the fronts!
I am looking forward to hearing comments on this borderectomy--the first card was a bit scary, but I figured I had nothing to loose, since I kept the cards around for ages out of nostalgia and a great love of all things Avalon but could never do a reading with them. In fact I felt as if I could hardly make out the details on the pictures. As one lady on Amazon commented she felt she needed a magnifying glass. Now I have done several lovely readings with these cards, and so many details are popping out at me that I had never noticed before. So for me this is like a second wedding with an old spouse lol!

out of curiosity, are you planning to put the ones in the first posts of the old thread and then update as we go along, or will you be adding all the ones from subsequent pages of the old thread as well?

either way, thanks for doing this new thread AJ. Useful :]

Ooh, neat! I just trimmed my Legacy of the Divine Tarot. It's amazing how much more readable it is for me now. I'll upload pictures later!
