First up, Gothic Hello Kitty. I made this from a rolodex card I’d started back when I was actively trading these. I chopped it up into the kitty, the spiderweb, and the kitty head, then I added stickers and printed out the fancy “Gothic” bit. I like her better with a mouth, I think, than the usual Kitty.
Next up is my Movie Monsters deco book. The images are from ATCs I made for someone who likes classic movie monsters. I laser printed them, then tea dyed the page to give it that tint. And of course sparkly gel pen on the stars because… old Hollywood. I sort of wish I’d also done Bela as Dracula, but I hadn’t done it for the actual swap and didn’t feel like it just now. So someone else will have to make a page for him, I guess. There’s a note on the back that any movie monster will qualify.
Then there’s this 4×4″ I did for a really cool Mad Tea Party deco book. It’s one that crumple-folds and expands. Totally noted the construction in my notebook, because I really need to make something like that at some point! It feels complicated in the hand, but actually is fairly simple when you draw out how it goes together. I like that.
Anyhow, obviously it’s the Cheshire Cat with his tea and sugar cubes. I did a little rim of silver puff paint on the rim of the cup, but it got smushed. Alas!
Have I mentioned that we call one of our cats the Bandersnatch? She’s mostly white and fluffy, and chubby, and just… yes. That’s not her name, though.
Okay, last bit: This one is a book I made for Phrixy. It’s a surprise, and will one day arrive at her parents’ place in the mail. Because why not. It’s Artful Asia, and since I painted and collaged on it, I didn’t also do a page. I have enough to do already! LOL Besides, she has lots of my art. The front is just headlines from a newspaper, so I have no idea what it says, and flowers and a postal stamp from some scrapbook paper. I painted the cherry blossom and the cherry blossom tree directly on the back and the inside cover respectively.
And that’s it for now. More colouring news very, very soon.
