The Cat's Meow! NOT

Bill at Art Contemplations said "isn't digital collage the dog's meow" and I so agree. It inspired the idea for the above digital collage.

Cat-ch Phrases and their origins

which reminds me of a phrase I use to describe my studio, not enough room to swing a cat
which doesn't mean a real cat but a cat-o-nine-tails used to punish naughty sailors. I am not a naughty sailor, but I can be a naughty artist (wink! wink! nudge! nudge! if you know wot I mean!)

Jafagirls: No Ordinary Dolls

We got the show up and well, it is rather wonderfully odd. I don't know how we're supposed to make money if we buy or trade with each other. Nancy traded with Talitha, and I saw one of Talitha's peices and HAD to HAVE it LOL! Unfortunately the lighting is horrid and it was hard to take pics of the work, but at least you get the idea :). She has a light box with an image of a chest x -ray and her hair is strips of paper with words.

Well got to go, knitting, painting and artistic festering is waiting to pounce in the background.
Toodle pip ya'll

Lol, that writing was getting bigger and bigger! I'm glad you stopped when you did! I was wondering what on earth was going on!

I like the digital collage, and thanks for the explanation about swinging a cat - very interesting.
