Sneak Peek - Kristy Looking Out



I can see that the Art Every Day challenge is going to get me to finish some long neglected pieces and create some new work, too! Kristy's little head, cut from fabric and highlighted with acrylic paints, has been floating around my studio for a while! Today I made paws, but now she needs a body and a background. My original intention was for her to be peeking out from under a blanket, so I'll go with that. I need to cut out the missing elements from fabric, fuse and stitch the whole piece, and highlight it with some paints or colored pencil!!
I will get it done this month! Yay!

Ya, Judy, this challenge has lit a fire under my butt, too!

Can't wait to see Kristy peeking out from under a blanket.

Kristy The Cat always makes me happy!

I loved that last Fall inspired piece also-the yellow and black/dark brown is really a striking combination:)

Yeah! Here's to getting some projects wrapped up. I have quite a list myself. I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Cute cat!
