Musical Cats

Well, I finally did a layout with Fantabulous Cricut as my inspiration! The challenge this week was to do something musical. Boy, do I have a lot of that to do for my older daughter's book. Before I know it, there will be another performance and more to do:) These pictures were taken this summer so I'm not too far behind. We made her cat costume. I have to say the tail, for me, was the most fun. I used 5 different colors of tulle and the base was a nylon hose stuffed with polyester fiberfil.  They were cut in strips, 2 pieces sewn together and when pulled on the ends created a puff ball that was then sewn to the base. Her tail inspired a lot of the other girls too so they also created tails to match their costumes. It was too hot this day, but other peformances she wore one of her legwarmers on one leg. I sewed yarn to just to give some dimension to it.
This particular layout was for the "Cats" Musical song Jellicle Cats

The wheel paper was inspired because the cats live in a junkyard. I drew with the cri-kit pens in
black before cutting out.

This cat is also singing and the black cri-kit glitter pen was used on this one too.

This particular number was the opening act for "Music Man" so the backdrop had some
fun colors that we decided to pull onto the layout.

Great layout. How cute are the cats. I love the use of gel pens, cause otherwise you lose the texture cuts. Thanks for crafting with us today at FCCB. We hope to see you again.
