To have a go at this project collect all the necessary things together as in Craft Project No.1. This time don't worry about masking sections off. Just tape down the corners to stop the paper from moving about.
Mix up a suitable cat colour using shades of yellow, orange and a touch of Burnt Sienna.
On one half of your paper dab splodges of paint randomly. To add interest and texture, press wet paint with a piece of scrunched up cling film.
Add some black paint over the top by mixing Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna to get an inky black colour or just use black paint.
On the other half of the paper just apply paint as you would a colour wash - from side to side and from top to bottom.
When the paint is dry draw your cats directly onto the paper with a black pigment ink drawing pen.
Roughly cut around each cat and then take a bit of time and care to cut closely around the cats leaving a tiny space between the drawn line and edge of the paper.
The colour wash backgrounds that were made in Craft Project No.1 can be used as backgrounds to mount the cats on to.
Using the drawing pen sketch a design on the background and attach the cats with foam pads or double sided sticky tape depending on how much dimension you want to create. You now have an interesting litter of kitty's to do what you will with! Try mounting several on a card, or create a picture or scene with them. If you are not too good at drawing then trace a design or use a rubber stamp with a suitable ink pad. Go and experiment! It is fun not knowing the kind of fur markings your cat is going to get!
