Obviously there are lots of directions you could go with this challenge. You could create a page about a pet cat. But I did that for my last CPC reveal, and I wanted to do something different. You could make a page about a Cat in the Hat themed attraction, which I have done that before too. What I finally decided to do for this DT sample was limit myself to the same red, blue, black, and white palette of Dr. Seuss's famous book.
As far as subject matter goes, I chose a photo from a local nature center--nothing related to cats at all. Good thing we're all about creative interpretation at Child's Play! Speaking of creative, I did a bit of mixed media work on this layout. I stamped a pattern of circles with black ink and jumbo bubble wrap, I used an old plastic lid to stamp with pearlescent paint, and I scattered an array of sparkly bits and bobs across a black gesso background.
Little did I know, when my husband took this photo of me a couple years ago, that it would one day remind me of a silly pop song. You just gotta love "What Does the Fox Say," right?
I want to remind you that this Cat in the Hat challenge runs concurrently with our sequins challenge. Head on over to Child's Play Challenges to enter one or both of these challenges. Happy scrapping!
