Crafting with cats.

Not WITH THEM with them, just their pictures. See, I got some of my instagram pics printed out, and I was planning to transfer them to canvas for some DIY art pieces.

Only it turns out that you’re supposed to use pictures printed on regular paper from a laser printer. Not photo paper. Good going, me.

So I’m going to attempt to modpodge them to the canvases and get it done that way. I’m so stubborn. We’ll see how this turns out. Especially with my “helpers” – i.e. the furry ones who get really curious particularly about anything I don’t want them around.

I have big plans. We’ll see how this goes.

As you can see, Taco is already being very helpful by playing with the bags of supplies I picked up this morning.

Little helper, my ass.

Little helper, my ass.

I think I would have been better off going to the beach.

Update: all of the square canvases I bought are 1/4th of an inch bigger than the damn pictures. “Measure twice, cut once” is awfully good advice, but I suck horribly at following it. In fact, I’m more like “Vaguely measure, make it fit.” This is probably why I’m not rich and famous for my handmade goods.

    Hopefully tomorrow’s post will be about crafting WITH cats. My cat (who bears a remarkable resemblance both in look and name to your Taco) needs to be taught a lesson.

    Hey, I’ve seen those projects around webland and always wanted to try, will be fun to see what transpires. I especially like the ones with Instagrams. I also have a roll of freezer paper that I bought for something similar but it was so long ago I now have to try and find that post…something about printing on freezer paper in reverse and using modpodge…..mmmmm, I’ll have to get on that 😉

      Haven’t gotten very far yet. Only painted the sides of the canvas and put a rolled up pic between two yearbooks to flatten it out. So far, Taco’s eaten the corners of it. Sigh.
