Photog Makes Whimsical Art With Carpet, Construction Paper and Cat

California photographer Theresa Knudson had an epiphany when her cat Fluffy was sleeping on a blue carpet during a hot day.

“I cut out some construction paper balloons, fish, clouds, etc. and laid them down around him,” Knudson tells The Fluffington Post. “I stood on my sofa and shot from above.”

The rest is Internet history, as the photos have popped up on blogs all over the web. Knudson credits the technique to Jan von Holleben, whom she claims is the master.
