Ralphie & Roxy: Cat Paint Video

I thought I'd try posting a short video of my cats playing "Cat Paint" on my iPad... Not sure if this will work, but it's only a short clip... fingers crossed!

This app is like crack to Ralphie and Roxy, every time they see my iPad in hand they come running, asking to play a "canvas" or two ;-)

 Here are a few of those "canvases" the kittens have created:
 


 
Lots of fun to be had with this app!  You will have a few good laughs at your cat trying to chase the mouse under your tablet, I know we sure did!   :-)

Cheers,
Steph

Creative Scrappers Sketch # 254

Here is my take on this weeks Creative Scrappers sketch #254! It has a mixture of a lot of products, and I think that is what I like most about it (besides the super adorable photo of my Ralphie of course).

There is a bit of American Crafts, October afternoon, Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, Amy Tangerine, Echo Park, Freckled Fawn and even a few BH Project life cards added for layering! (I used an exacto knife and cut out half of the heart on a PL card so I could layer it with my journaling card).

I'm so happy that I captured this photo showing Ralphie's bright blue kitten eyes, as it wasn't long after that they faded into a muted grayish color.

How to Paint an Owl

It's no secret.  I love owls!  I'm not sure when it began, but it slowly crept up on me around the time I began My Little Bit of Whimsy and I started making them out of polymer clay.  Fast forward to a few years later, and our house is filled with owl images and figurines! 

I adore them, and have always loved the idea of painting my own wall art... so when I came across Juliette Crane's "How to Paint an Owl" class, it seemed like a perfect fit!

Here is my first painted owl (no mixed media, straight up paint!)  I'm loving this class and her technique!

Thanks for stopping by!

Creative Scrappers Sketch 253

Another wonderful sketch to share with you today from Creative Scrappers!  Here is my take on the sketch, using a mix of Hambly, American Crafts and Studio Calico.  I tend to stick with entire lines of product, thus ensuring that everything matches etc... but every now and again I like to create my own little kit to work with and just pull from my stash as needed!  I love the end results, and really need to do this more often :)
