All the flying cats! - new cards

The last few days there was something like a black hole inside of me where normally my creativity should be. You know this feeling? You want to do something... but... there is no inspiration in oneself anymore. Mh... I hate it! It is a little bit like standing beside myself, trying to reach it... but failing...

I know how I got to this point. The last few days I didn't take the time, even if it would be only five minutes, to make anything. This is not how my brain is working. To make a little bit everyday is what really brings more ideas out of me. They come out of their own without any effort. Never ever to stop is the important thing for me!

So... lesson learned. Again ;)

There are a lot of things going on around me, with family and friends and also with myself. And if I say a lot of things, you know, I don't mean the good ones. To create and make "stuff" is something which calms me and put my mind at ease. It is like taking a deep breath away from all the worries.

And here we are: With little flying cats!

(Yes, having three black not-so-little devils is also helping to calm down and smile. There are a lot of pics in my blog, you know how all the cat owners are a little bit crazy ^^ Just search for Bisu, Grusel or Dean in my blog to find them! :) )

The two black cats are from graphics fairy. In this blog certainly the most used cat picture! The white one is from an old magazine. Some ad I cut out but don't ask me which ad. I am collecting pictures all the time if I like them. 

The silver wings are cut out with a normal scissor of a can. It was an IRN-BRU can (I am addicted to this stuff, thanks that it is not allowed to be sold here in germany otherwise I would drink way too much of it!) and I wanted to use the images on it. But cutting though the metal I was surprised how thin it was and somehow got insprirated to form little wings out of it. Just paint a little wing freehand and cut it out.

Other used material:
cardboard, paint chips, white and silver laquer pen, old mascara (for the black effects!), silver, gold and brown artistic water colours, book page...

I am sorry that I didn't make any pictures of the progress. I forgot it...

  1. I like your flying cats!! The wings are perfect! I'm so glad you got your creativity back.

  2. I love your flying whimsical! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments!

  3. Oh, I love these! The tin wings are so cool. I know exactly what you mean, when I have to take a break from being creative, I feel terrible. Art therapy! I'm glad you had a chance to make cats fly and feel a little calmer. I hope your "a lot of things" get better soon.

  4. I am always intrigued with what I find when I come for a visit! Love the flying cats!
