Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Bras for A Cause - The Eye of a Tiger


My husband is brave.  Not just because he's a fireman, but because he's a fireman who cares enough about the health of women to wear a bra in public.  Yep, a bra.   A bra and his turnout gear & helmet.  But not just because he wants to......... he's part of the local Bras for A Cause Charity Auction this Thursday, October 20th.   Each participant was asked to bring a "decorated" bra......and choose a song they wanted to walk the runway to.   After much thought, it was decided that Danny would do his strut to the song ROAR by Katie Perry.  This part of the lyrics just seemed appropriate for the fight against breast cancer:

You held me down, but I got up (hey)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am the champion, and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar
And of course, since we decided on that song, his bra had to be the EYES OF THE TIGER.  
So the task of transforming this $3.00 clearance rack bra into a "roaring work of art" began.... 
I used DecoArt® Americana® Multi-Surface Satin™ acrylics to hand paint the decorative eyes & stripes.   A mixture of Muted Gold and Paprika was perfect for creating just the right tone for his bold "orange" coloring.   Black Tie & Cotton Ball were used for the stripes.
