Challenge for August 2017, Mixed Media forum!

Kay (aka KreativeK) has suggested that we do the theme "pets" for August. I think that's a great idea, so get out your favorite supplies and have at it! If you'd like to join in, there are no rules...any medium or media you like, whatever pet you like, real or imagined, normal or exotic, present, past, or future. You could even build yourself a pet from scratch if you'd like!

Post your results here in this thread!

Bummer! I was hoping you could. I don't have that ability as a Guide. We'll just have to keep bumping it up as needed

I did it! The July one had to be unstuck first. Now the invitation for it is on the home page.

Re: Challenge for August 2017, Mixed Media forum!

I hope sewing a pet is acceptable? I put these little guys together quite quickly out of old T shirts I could not use anymore. Usually I am terrible at sewing, but rag dolls are fun. If it does not qualify as mixed media, can it be moved to fiber arts?

I'm still not sure what I'm going to do. I don't paint anything realistic, and I'm not seeing any beaded design in my mind. Still, I do have a very pretty cat, and she ought to be able to inspire something since she sleeps on my work table a lot

Re: Challenge for August 2017, Mixed Media forum!

She's gorgeous! A ragdoll?

My two tuxedo kitties inspired this one I'd initially started then put away


10x15 mixed media of Chester and Midge sleeping on red roses. Beginning sketch was in India ink with a background of watercolor. Montana acrylic markers are the golden yellow ochre along with some black and white. Large areas are black ink. Other collage is torn patterned envelope and has white marker on top. Since cats are symbolically on a bed of roses, the red collaged dollar store gift wrap seemed appropriate for these two rescues.

I love that, Kay! Tuxedo cats are soooo cute!

Yes, mine is a Ragdoll...she's our second, and she was a "rescue". She had a great home, but her Daddy became sick with lung cancer, so she needed a new home.

The cats on the roses are so sweet! They look a little bit naughty, too. Very cute picture!
