Caturday Art

Today I m going to start with the original photo. This is Calista Jo hanging out in the cat tree cubby on the catio. Though she barely fits, this is her favorite spot when the weather is warm. We almost reached 70 degrees F today.

Many Caturday artists have been using LunaPic lately, so I decided to start there. This is what I created.


Caturday Art with C.J.


To create this art, I first added Lego Style from Effects. Then I added the Water Filter and finally the Watercolor Art at about 70 percent. I particularly like all the various textures.

I needed a frame and added this one using piZap. As it covered up a good deal of the original art, I wanted to share the interim piece with you.

Bacon Harvest

It’s finally time to harvest all that nommy bacon that Angel Sammy and Teddy have been growing in their greenhouse over at Two Spoiled Cats. Don’t forget to drop in there today if you’d like to help out and harvest a bacon stash for yourself. Mau, Cooper Murphy and Mau’s lovely wife, Allie, will be there.

You picked a great photo for that filter! While it doesn’t look like Lego, it actually looks like the needlepoint TW used to do. Cool!

We enjoyed your artwork very much, both the colors and the texturized look. And the frames are great. You also made a super choice to start with. We liked them both but our favorite was the 2nd one.

We have a question maybe you can answer. Our replies to you used to end with the “recently posted” post. Now we see that your other repliers still end this way but ours no longer gives that info. Must be something with our settlings. Any idea how we can correct this?

Annabelle March 25, 2017 at 6:40 pm

Calista Jo you sure do look beautiful in your Caturday art!
