I like to look back through previous posts from the month we are presently in. I found this post for the 10th February 2013, coincidentally it has a cat on it!
-------------------------------I had two trips to the Manchester craft show this week - once when I spent far too much and another when I didn't spend much at all. Both trips were great because I met up with friends and crafting acquaintances too!
Suffice to say I was quite weary by the time last night came as I had also done a 'big shop' on Friday!
Eager as I was to play with my new goodies I sat and did some doodling while on the settee watching tv!
The background had been painted and inked some time ago and was waiting for me!
This is what I came up with
Well, I drew the little cat and the branches - but didn't really have anything in mind - until this morning - so I had a little heart from Tim's Heartwings die which I bought on Thursday, along with some fresco paints so I used the heart and painted on some green paint. Stamped Lindsay's little cat without her ball of wool, used letters from one of my little boxes and doodled the edge and some little hearts! Last thing to be done were the butterflies from a box of Cavellini stamps.
I hope you like it!
-------------------------So, back to today!
We 'nipped' into town today...it took 5 hours!!! I had been hoping for a walk in my favourite garden but hubby needed to go in to pick something up so I went with him! It took us 50 minutes by bus then metro. We went our own way with a plan to meet up within the hour. When we did meet up hubby said there was something I must see(all will be explained on T Day!)By this time I was in need of a coffee but hubby said there was somewhere he needed to pop into so off I went in the opposite direction to Paperchase.
By the time we met up I needed not only coffee but something to eat so we headed off for a sandwich before catching the metro and bus back home
While in Paperchase I found some fabulous washi tape to go with some stickers that came in a pack I bought in last year's sale!
My page had some green paint wiped on to it so I added some zig zag stamping then the washi tape and some black washi too.
I stamped the word from one of my favourite word sets but can't remember where it is from!
I would like to enter in Rike's theme - 'Animals from A to Z' at Art Journal Journey
I hope you like my second look cat and my zebras!
Thanks for looking, Chris
