I have a bit of a “thing” for kitsch cat stuff. Yes, I know I’m sort of cementing my crazy cat lady status here, but I do tend to be drawn to it.
When I saw this canvas in Typo, I had to have it and it has hung in my laundry, where my cats eat ever since.
So I decided to photograph them for posterity, then upcycle them with a bit of decoupage. And what better inspiration than kitsch kitty plates?
I knew I had an old kitten calendar that would be perfect, and I raided my stash for all the other bits and pieces I needed – newspaper, mod podge, acrylic paint and some flowery wrapping paper.
A quick spray with acrylic gloss, and they were ready to hang on the wall in the laundry!
I filled in the spaces with cat pictures and washi tape to try and make a more cohesive collection.
