I’ve never claimed to be normal. And I’m not going to start now. If you’re new around here you may or may not have figured it out but I sometimes do some pretty strange things. Exhibit A, B and C. And those are just a few of the things that I DO show on this blog! There are plenty of others that will never be seen by anyone but my nearest and dearest. Because they already know how weird I am so there’s no reason to hide it :)
To be honest, I can’t even begin to tell you why I made some cat face art. It was probably something along the lines of “hey self, I wonder what my cat would look like with a bowtie and glasses”. And self said back “good luck trying that one out without getting scratched all sorts of up”. And then this whole thing happened.
I hadn’t really had any plans to share this. I was just going to print them and put them on my walls. But one day I decided to share on Instagram. And there Onel (remember her from the crafting abroad series? the super talented crafty chick from Japan?) who just so happens to blog over at Onelmon was really digging it. So much that she wanted to use the image for a crafty project.
I was totally down but it took ages for me to figure out how to scan these babies. But now I have and Miss Onel and YOU can use these images for your crafts or to print for decor in your home. But please be cool… don’t repost these, try to pass them off as your own or try to profit from them.
We’ve got Marla dressed with a French beret, fashionable scarf and mustache…
…showing off how much she loves Kanye glasses (almost as much as Kanye loves Kanye)…
…pretending to be a catfish in super cute scuba gear…
…and of course the geek chic babe that started this whole thing.
Click the pic to download the printable PDF for that image. These suckers are high quality sized to 8×10 inches so you should get a pretty nice print out of them.
AAAAND if you’re so inclined I made a blank Marla for you to play dress up yourself!
So what do you think? Awesome, weird or a little bit of both?
Want to make your own? Cut out and copy a pic of your pet’s head. I used Photoshop but you can always old-school it with a pair of scissors. Print that pic out (or just use this one of my lovely Miss Marla), situate the pieces where you want them and use repositionable glue like Aleene’s Repositionable Tacky Spray to adhere.
Using repositionable means you can move things around without damaging anything if you don’t get it exactly right the first time.
This was my first attempt. That bow-tie is rocking but way, way too big. Since the adhesive wasn’t permanent I peeled it up and tried again! And got it right the next time!
Whether you print the ones I made or make your own, this is some super fun art that will definitely stand out from your usual landscape paintings and family portraits! :)
