I have been trying to catch up with Stranger Things season 4 and as I was watching at the weekend I spotted something interesting and took a screen grab…

Do you see the Earth Day poster on the notice board?  This season is set in March 1986 by the way.

Today’s Art . . .

Today’s art is this page that I made as an entry for AJJ where the theme is recycling – see link at bottom of post.

The inspiration for this page was the box that these yoga cat magnets came in.  It was too nice to throw away!

I covered my page with blue and purple acrylic inks and added some fabric scraps on top and underneath the opening on the box.

I made an attempt to draw one of the yoga cats on a larger scale on the facing page.

Oh and while we are on the subject of cats, I finished painting my phone case!  Last time, it looked like this…

And now it looks like this…

Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading.

Oh wow. Impressive recycling, Elle. I love how you used the recycled container and paired it with fabric scraps. Of course, I love your cat drawing, too. This is a wonderful entry and perfect for Bleubeard’s and my theme at Art Journal Journey.

I really like the cat yoga recycled page. Those look like fun magnets, and the box does work so well on your page. I really like how you added a bit of fabric including the selvage edge too. And wow, you phone case looks amazing. How fun! I bet it will look great on your phone. And I really like Stranger Things. I should rewatch some of them-thanks for the inspiration. Hope you’re having a nice week. hugs-Erika

That came out great. I can never throw away anything with a cat on it.
