Feline Theme ATC Swap

Feline Theme ATC 2 Feline Theme ATC 1
I am so hooked on this ATC thing and on swaps on Swap-bot that I started my own swap. Since the great love of my life is my now rather pampered and overweight kitten, I chose a feline theme and am happy to say that 18 other folk decided to join in the fun and games.

I really wanted to to some watercolour painting but when I saw a series of pictures from a Chinese scroll on eBay (no, I didn't win it!) I was 'called' to use them in a collage. None of my usual paper hangouts had any oriental paper, which I found a little surprising as I am sure that have seen some around and about. Just about reaching the point of dispair, I suddenly came across some origami paper when I stopped for a little art indugence on the way home from work earlier this week. The naughty looks on the faces of these cats needed something to chase so they got leaves, butterflies and dragonflies punched from scraps of the origami paper. Finally, to satisfy my need for paint, I spead a little watercolour in the white space that was left.

I am sure that I will get better at collage the more I try but I think that these are cute.

Oh, these are wonderful. Not only the darling felines, but the Chinese art! I have not tried the ATC's. I understand they are highly addictive! I have the materials...too many projects whirling in my mind at the same time, so none gets done! I have cats all over my office, only one is live! I know I cannot print your ATC's, but may I use them as reference? As always, thanks for sharing your lovely artwork. Elaine
