Raining Cats & Dogs
The phrase raining cats and dogs, or dogs and polecats (weasels), originated hundreds of years ago as an exaggerated means to describe the occurrence of very heavy rainstorms.
The first known uses of the phrase occurred in a 1651 collection of poems, Olor Iscanus "The Swan of Usk" by British poet Henry Vaughan, and Richard Brome, an English playwright.
When the local library representative told me the next upcoming art project theme is to be Raining Cats and Dogs, the idea of little raindrops carrying cats and dogs popped into mind as a cute idea for a hanging mobile.
Initially I wanted to create 3-D paper mache' droplets to paint and hang on the mobile frame, but as these illustrations progressed, I realized they would look equally cute simply printed out on glossy photo paper which I could cut out and hang on the mobile frame. So much less fuss and muss.
Then I realized all these funny falling cats and dogs in bubbles and water drops could benefit Scissorcraft members who might also wish to welcome the upcoming rainy season with hanging decorations, mobiles, window decals or sun catchers.
Condensed, printable collage of raining cats & dogs for making a hanging mobile or window decorations. Easy to make.
