The Cats rule the Nights:

Every dog may have his day
In the sun always ready to play
Running around and sniffing the flowers
Throughout the day enjoying the hours

As the sky becomes void of the morning light
Cats become the rulers of the night
Under the blossoms two meet in the park
With heads and legs so close they form a heart…

.

When Two becomes One:

Head to head, toe to toe
Always together wherever we go
To share the same joy and the same pain
In the sunshine and under the rain
In two bodies a single heartbeat runs
True love is born when two becomes one

(both poems above written by me)

.

The cats were folded from a single rectangular piece

I divided the rectangle to two 15×15mm squares; cut the rectangle part way only leaving a bit for the heads to join

(Awww…. they are forming a heart ~~)

The swing is the same heart necklace I used in Puppy on a Neckleash. I ran the chain through a straw supported at the ends by laundry clips. The flowers are from a flower pot, and the pine tree in the distance is a pine cone. The grass is a velvet green shirt.

I’m still getting the hang of my brother’s camera (A Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS – which is more or less becoming my camera now; hehehe…) and this is the first time I used it for one of my miniature origami pieces. It was a bit of challenge as the macro feature on that camera is different – I got used to the macro on my Olympus FE-340 – but my brother’s camera offer a higher resolution – in time I shall master it… Although the difficulty in producing this piece was more so because of the complicated set-up (see my reply to the first comment) rather than getting used to a new camera – I’ll elaborate more on that another day. With so many small objects and a small window in my room, focus and lighting was also a challenge. I had to constantly move things around to get things right, and enhanced the lighting (from the window) by using a big mirror – which really helped! (The flowers were sitting on the side closer to the window – composition wise this way it looked better; and also if I had the flower pot on the other side, a rose would have been blocking my “blossoms”)

.

The piece is inspired by the funny and lovable behaviour of all things living around us – and that includes people; cat couples are not the only ones to meet at night

The bridge above, located in Vicenza, Italy is a common meeting spot for young couples to confess their love…

    Very creative :) Like your view about cats and dogs too.

    By the way, is the paper folding a miniature?

  • Thank you Gwoeii – and yes the cats are miniature – I know the scale maybe hard to compare with the flowers as those flowers are pretty small too; although at the least it is not so common to see laundry pins (the support for the swings) so big! There is also the pendant to compare to as well and I have the scale reference in the image.

    I’d have to say, it took very long for me to get the result I liked – mostly due to not being satisfied with the set-up; but it was so tedious to make adjustments as things tended to fall over; had to think about the cats on the swing (sometimes they’ll turn the other way when moved – really annoying, balancing the laundry clips and the pine cone – without destroying the flowers. I’ll share more on that another day.

    I actually took a bunch of pictures last night and when I looked at them this morning I wasn’t happy with any of them, so I went through the painful procedure once again… Again I was having a lot of frustration, and took awhile to get something I liked – BUT I can say now that I am very pleased with this outcome. But that almost gets wasted because sadly the RB preview cuts off the most important element! :-( As a result, maybe, I hadn’t had much views on this yet so I really appreciate you taking a look – as well to read my description and comment, so thank you!
