...but the milk's still good." Thinking back to your childhood, did you ever hear your mom or grandmother say this phrase? I sure did. Usually expressed when one of us grandkids was throwing a temper tantrum or things just simply weren't going our way.
Awhile back I saw this vintage style Cavallini cat paper and thought it would be lots of fun to work with. Not so much the cat lover myself as I am allergic to the fur, I knew there are many cat people out there who would be all about this. Wanting something simple yet bold, just the words "TOUGH titty" was perfect. Initially I was hesitant to create this window, wondering if it might be offensive or distasteful to some. Apparently I was wrong. I made this window, and it was a hit. I sold it right away, and had many prints of it that sold as well. Since it was very well received and evoked memories of past for many, I know that this is a window I plan to create again. In fact, I plan on making and having one of these for sale at the upcoming Junk Hippy Show OKC on June 14. In addition to an original and 8X10 prints, I will have greeting cards of this design as well.
Let this window be a lesson for me. As an artist, sometimes you have to take chances; for the chances are usually the most successful creations.
Speaking of cats, Paper Issues has a fun challenge going on right now, "It's Raining Cats & Dogs." What a fun theme to play along with! If you have any layouts, cards, etc that involve cats and dogs and include paper, why not share?!?
Have a great one!
