Cattitude painting

Hi guys! OMG another post so soon? Yeah, it’s a new thing I’m trying, I hope you like it.

I made this adorable painting for my mother-in-law {who is secretly a crazy cat lady}. She is just awesome and helped us remodel our kitchen, which is now so pretty! I wanted to make something for her to thank her. I found this art journal page through pinterest, made by Nika in Wonderland. I loved the design and wanted to make something like that, but more in my style and in her colours.

First I painted a gradient in turquoise and purple and added the cat sillhouette. Then I added some texture to the page using stencils, which was for me a first time using this technique.

I looked at some art journaling pages for ideas for the edges, wanting to do something that was more ‘me’ than the original page. Then I added the quote, which I printed out on normal paper, and added the decorative borders. She absolutely loved it and couldn’t wait to hang it on the wall. It was my first try in the ‘art journal’ style and it was so much fun to do! I’ll definitely be doing more in this style, whether it’s in an actual art journal or on canvas again. Fun!
