Astrid's romantic March Pastel Caturday Art


If not for my tongue, the photo used today for my Caturday Art would have been deleted. Mom doesn’t remember if I moved or she did, but the original photo is totally out of focus. That actually worked to my advantage when it came to this creation as it made the photo more romantic.

Astrid's romantic march pastel Caturday Art HDRMom added two effects and the frame using That’s it. Amazing, huh? No kitchen sink this week! But you know she wasn’t satisfied with that. She had to add the HDR filter from Picasa to come up with the variation on the right. We think this is nice, but both like the original better.

This is our submission for Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s fun Caturday Art blog hop. If you haven’t started exploring your artistic side, what’s stopping you? With all the free, on-line, photo-editing apps, anyone can do it. And it is a super way to salvage cute but bad photos.

Cat4-001Goody, goody, tomorrow is Sunday, which means our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. Not sure who’ll be hosting tomorrow. We kitties will have to have a confab to decide if it’ll be one of us or a guest. Entries last week were pretty light, only 50 including Lisbeth in her tiara. If you normally pawticipate but are starting to tire of the hop, let us know. If you’re still with us, we look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

As you all know, our friend, Sammy, is King of the Teasers, but I’d like to leave you with a teaser today. In less than two weeks I have a really big announcement to make. Something super exciting happened a couple of weeks ago, which will lead to an even more exciting event in June. If you have a guess as to what’s up, let me know in the comments.

Ciao for now.

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid with elebenty bazillion kisses for Sampy
