I have a quick post today to share this journal page I finished the other night, though the page itself was something I started last year, did nothing with, and then decided I would paint over it and turn it into something else! So I am again using up some leftover bits and pieces to turn them into one page.
Today’s Art . . .
Today’s art is (of course) another cat page I made for Neet’s theme this month on Art Journal Journey.This one has A LOT of cats lol and so the poor dog is feeling a bit outnumbered! The cats are one stamp that I stamped out on white card years ago with the intention of making a card but didn’t, and the dog is a diecut that I cut out on my Big Shot, also years ago, in vinyl, and then did nothing with it. You will see in the photo below that it was green vinyl.
This photo also shows (partly) the original background where I had been testing out some metallic paint and writing meow all over the page, but then decided to gesso over it, but since it was watercolour, it mixed and I ended up with this weird colour, which along with the green dog and the cat collective really wasn’t working.
I did my best to turn it into a cohesive page by adding the greenery and tress and then colouring the sky blue. Then I painted the green vinyl black which looked much better.
No wonder the dog is feeling outnumbered, I think there are 42 cats watching him from the other side of the page!
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!
