Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat

Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat

I created this Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat after a marathon of trying to please a repeat customer. I’m not sure I’ve ever made as many cats in a row just to find one that someone likes. Moral of the story: try, try, again, for they…

Quilled Starburst Heart Cat

Quilled Starburst Heart Cat

I felt compelled to get on the bandwagon of making something just for Valentine’s Day. I have to admit that working full-time makes it hard to keep up with the trends and output a constant feed of new artwork. So, even though it was a…

Quilled Tie-Dye Fat Cat | Pink & Purple

This is the third Fat Cat I made last night: a pink and purple Quilled Tie-Dye Fat Cat. I guess you could also say he resembles a mandala. He wasn’t really planned or based on anything specific, so I guess he can be anything you…

This Quilled Zig-Zag Fat Cat is my favorite of the three new Fat Cats I created last night . I think it’s because he is so simple, yet has a lot of texture and character. I don’t use a lot of bright colors in my…

Gilded Black Quilled Cat | Gilded Scrollwork

Look at this gorgeous Gilded Black Quilled Cat! I have been hoarding a ton of gilded paper from JJ Quilling for the past few years. I guess in my head since it was so expensive and they’re so far away, I need to use it…
