“Cat And A Bird” originally started out by making a collage so I could cut shapes, mainly hearts, and make cards out of them. Then I thought of other shapes to cut out and thought of a whole video to shoot. Instead, as I stuck paper on top of paper, on top of more paper. I discovered a bird I had stamped and trimmed in the mix, and decided I wanted to use it. Then a cat popped up. I couldn’t cut this up. After some rubbing with my new Faber-Castell Gelatos that I got for Christmas, I deemed it done. Below is the entire piece.
