Caturday Art Blog Hop


astrid in the sky with hearts


Today’s Caturday Art with Astrid dreaming of teleporting was created using multiple overlays in PicMonkey with a final layer added in Picasa. I took my usual more is more approach and kept adding and subtracting to the colorful and sparkling background to give Astrid her out-of-this-world look.

I added two layers of “Bokah” shapes hearts. You can see a couple of them to the left of Astrid. I also added two separate layers of “Bokah” shapes stars, and some of those are visible to Astrid’s right. I included three layers of “Radiance” in different colors. Overkill…yes! But I really like it; even though, all the additions made Astrid look a little angry.
