Kitty, Kitty

This was my first experience with surface patterns and I really enjoyed it.

Because I'm not a good artist, I went for a theme I can make look decent at least 50 percent of the time - cats. The wallpaper pattern name is "Kitty, Kitty." I used sketches along with the word "cat" in English, Spanish, German, French and Swahili, plus the words for some cat noises.

Here is my sketch pad cat pattern.

I didn't have a wall space on which to attach the tiles, so I spread them on a flat surface.

The lighting in my house is pretty dreadful. I think that is why so many of my photos have a pink cast. They really are not pink.

The biggest challenge in doing this project was my shaky hands. Cutting and taping was not a fun thing and few of the joins are seamless. However, this was a great class. I learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the pattern come together.

Thanks for good instruction, Julia.
