Meet Little Giz, a silly cat with a a charming personality. Giz is one of the designs in a new collection based on my daughter's big orange cat who is the worlds silliest felines.
This ATC uses Giz, Hearts and Whirly Hat. Giz was colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine using paper stumps.
The cording around the top and bottom corners is a hand made version of fancy butchers twine. I couldn't find any in our local stores so made my own with two balls of crochet cotten, one red and the other white. I cut two long strands of each and tied on of end of both to one of the cabinet knobs in my art room. I then twisted the cords together to make the twirled cording and wrapped the finished string on an old wooden spool for safe keeping. Because it has nothing to really keep it both together, it will unravel if left lose. Since it is secure on the spool, I can cut small pieces of the cording and tape it to any kind of art project.
