Yup, more jiggly eyes. Can't seem to get my fill.





One night while sitting around feeling guilty about watching tv and not doing something constructive I made a couple dozen construction paper, jiggly eyed cats. Yeah, real constructive. Tongue

Anyho, I tried incorporating them in resin but I couldn't seem to seal the paper enough to where the color looked consistant sooooo... I moved on to the shrink paper.

The fishy was outlined in Prismacolor pencils and then painted with watercolors. I added felt to the back to make the waterscolors more rich and a little more opaque.

As always comments welcome.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

You have no idea how much giggling your idea of being constructive caused.

At least it did end up being constructive after all.

You have no idea how many times I read your reply and kept reading the word giggling as jiggly. Cheesy My SO had to clear it up for me.

Heck.  Yes.
I would wear that thing all the time...and I will.  I'll have to make one that looks slightly different so it's not really copying, because copying is bad, right?

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
