Artwork, Paper Cutting

Dictionary Page Art – Cats & Quilts

I’ve got a friend who absolutely LOVES kitties and making quilts. Actually, she LOVES making quilt tops – I’m not sure she’s actually made a full size quilt yet.

I wanted to give her something special for her birthday this past January so I created art work on a dictionary page that contained the definition of quilt.

The picture and mat were fine but I wanted it to have something more so I began experimenting with paper cutting and designed a custom border for the picture mat.

I designed a vine, then added sewing, quilting and kitty elements intertwined among the flowers and leaves.

This is how it turned out.

Were you able to find the scissors, thread and needle, pin cushion, spool of thread, thimble, and three kitties?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
