Fun recycling creating real or imaginged cat faces from recycled newspaper

Playing with colored pencils I looked down and loved the way they looked lying next to each other and pointing up at me. I started working with recycled papers of all kinds. First I made hearts and stars and people loved them. Since I love cats I started making real-looking cat faces and then some crazy imagined ones. I've done some with eyelashes, pirate cats, rainbow cats, butterfly cats, green funnies cats. Recycled newspaper works the best as it is easy to roll. I cut out colored sections of ads or photos and save them in shoeboxes for each color. Old brooms provide whiskers. Each takes me about 10 hours to create. Each face is backed with recycled newspaper rolls going the opposite direction for stability. I sign every one.
All cat faces are dipped in glue/water solution to preserve the color. This is truly a labor of love.
I have also done geckos, fish, blue crab, four-leaf clover, sugar skulls and several dog faces as well.
