I wonder what they are thinking

Some days you just have to get messy and inky and today was one of those days.
A time to create backgrounds and mop up spare ink from the craft mat.

the theme is Inspired by Autumn Colours
I cannot tell you the exact colours on these pages, but they do have the feeling of autumn for me.
I used a variety of stamped images Paper Artsy, Stampers Anonymous
 and these fun cat images by Katzelkraft.

I wondered what these two could be thinking and remembered many years ago our family cat was a great one for catching mice and birds.
Now don't panic, she never killed them, but brought them into the house alive and kicking.
Presents for her family, 
she never could understand that this was not good,
 she  was never allowed further than the laundry room until we checked 
she hadn't brought home an unwanted visitor.
The dog was no help either, just joined in the game of catch it quick.

So as you see the second version, with a few digital tweeks
 has given the cats a couple of friends to play with.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have beeen making, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.

  2. I love your page - so colourful and happy.. this kitty images look like they had just received an electric shock --lol! How fun to give them playmates digital!
    Love your little story about your cat as well.... I know that the most cats like to bring presents for us like mice or birds... but we humans don't appreciate.
    Thanks a lot for this wonderful entry to Art Journal Journey dear Yvonne!
    Happy rest of the day!

  16. I'm not sure what YOUR cats are thinking, but Bleubeard and Squiggles would be just like your family cat of old. It would be a play day for them. The digital entry was even more fun than the original, but of course, I like them both. Great use of colors and theme.
