Caturday Art Blog Hop

TORTIE & TORBIE ART

Caturday Art

Audrey and Calista Jo are the subjects of today’s Caturday Art. Surprisingly, they were both awake when I took their photo. I actually took about ten photos trying to get them to look at me. However, wherever I moved, Audrey looked away. So, only Calista Jo is looking forward.

To create today’s art, I went back to Painnt. I used the Hialeah effect. After applying the effect, I sharpened the image by 20 percent. The frame  is from the favpng app.

I made a puzzle, but removed the ornate part of the frame to eliminate what would have been a small white border.

Dr. Seuss Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow our selfies hop will celebrate Dr. Seuss, whose birthday is today. I thought you might like to celebrate by using a special frame for your selfie. I have made a few from which you can select. Of course, you are not required to use a frame, and if you choose to, it does not need to be one of these.

NAPPING ANGEL ART

Caturday Art 

I do not have any new photos of the Kitties Blue, so I dug back through my photo archives. I found a sweet photo of a napping Misty May. It is from October 3, 2020.

 

Tuxedo cat, who is now an angel, napping in an art creation.

 

To create the art I used the Finger Paint Doodle effect from Painnt. I changed the hue of the original art, bumped the saturation slightly and added Vintage coloring. With piZap I added the Abstract filter.

Here’s a puzzle for you. Hope you enjoy it and that you liked seeing Misty May today. She is missed here by all but Astrid.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is that day when you share your adorableness with all your friends and Kitties Blue by joining our blog hop. Though most of the Kitties Blue do not enjoy taking selfies, they always love seeing yours as do I.

As usual, I have no idea which of the gang will be here as your host tomorrow.  I suspect I’ll be doing some cat stalking later today. 

Tomorrow I will be including some photo frames you can pick up and use for our special Dr. Seuss Sunday Selfies  hop on Sunday, March 3.

Thanks for joining us today. Kitties Blue and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

 

A KITTY BLUE TURNS BLUE

Caturday Art

Calista Jo took two selfies for last Sunday. I used the one she didn’t share then for today’s Caturday Art project.

 

Calista Jo, one of the Kitties Blue, is blue in an ornate frame.

 

This is the Serpentine Heart effect from Painnt with a frame from the favpng app.

I did create a puzzle as well but trimmed the frame down some to remove the white borders on the left and top. Hope you have fun completing it.

Amazingly, your host for tomorrow has already taken her selfie. That is as much of a hint as I am going to give you. Your host will be one of the five girls. I really hope you show up to see who is here as well as to share your selfie with us.

Until then we wish you a happy Caturday filled with treats, purrs and cuddles.

 

 

ART TURNS AUDREY INTO A GINGER KITTY

Caturday Art

I certainly hope everyone is not tired of seeing the Kitties Blue snoozing, as that is what I have for you again today. My art is of a napping Audrey.

 

Napping torbie kitty has been turned ginger with an art effect from Painnt.

 

Audrey turned into a ginger kitty with the Color Seahorses effect from Painnt. I have used this effect previously in 2019. I try not repeat effects, but sometimes it happens. Of course, the frame is from the favpng app.

I do have a puzzle of napping Audrey as well as a bonus puzzle from an A.I. image I created using piZap.

As per usual, I have no clue who will be here as your host tomorrow.  I am expecting everyone will be playing hide ‘n seek with me today in an attempt to keep from being selected for the selfie. I really hope you show up to see which of the kitties is here and to share your selfie with us.

Until then we wish you a happy Caturday filled with treats and cuddles.

 

 

AUDREY’S PRETTY IN PURPLE

Caturday Art

Audrey is here today in an artified version of her photo from our January 25 Thankful Thursday post, “Thankfuls & Bummer of a Summer.”

To create today’s art, I used the Rainbow Spires effect from Painnt. I tinkered with several of the settings and so am unable to explain how I achieved the final look. The frame is, as usual, from the favpng app.

Here is the link to Audrey’s jigsaw puzzle.

All eight of the Kitties Blue are jumping with joy. They just found out we will have a guest host for Sunday Selfies tomorrow. I am not going to give any hits as to who this will be, so I am expecting everyone to show up to find out. Of course, the kitties and I hope you will share a selfie and link up to the blog hop as well.

Until then we wish you a happy Caturday filled with treats and cuddles.

 

RALEIGH RAINBOW CAT ART

Caturday Art

Raleigh is the subject of today’s rainbow Caturday Art and jigsaw puzzle. To create the art, I used the Couch effect from Painnt with the 60s coloring filter. To that I added a Bubble overlay from the favpng app at about 80 percent. The border is from piZap.

We will be right back here tomorrow to host our Sunday Selfies blog hop. And one of the Kitties Blue will even be here to meet you. Which one that might be is unknown at this time. But that kitty will definitely be looking for you. So please join us tomorrow, and thank you so much for dropping in today.

Have a furabulous Caturday, dear friends.

 

SUNPUDDLE DUO ART

Caturday Art

Sawyer and his headrest, Audrey, were enjoying a sunpuddle on the bed on a recent cold and snowy day. It has been the favorite napping place for most of the Kitties Blue this past week. With a south-facing, picture window, it is the best place to find sunpuddles if we aren’t buried under clouds.

 

A torbie cat and a Manx tabby cat make up the duo enjoying a sunpuddle in this Caturday Art creation.

 

To create the art I used the Porch Light effect from Painnt to which I added the Glitter filter from piZap at 20 percent. The frame is from the favpng app.

Here is this week’s puzzle.

preview110pieceSunpuddle Cats

I also have a bonus puzzle for you his week. I created it using the A.I. feature in piZap. Hope you have fun solving it.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Another week has flown by, which means tomorrow is Sunday Selfies Day. Unless I can coerce one of the other Kitties Blue, Cooper Murphy will be here tomorrow as your host. He grudgingly took a less-than-flattering selfie, and refused my request to “try again.”

I do not know when or how Dad Tom and I lost control of our cats, but I know it happened years ago. And each cat instructs the next on how to do exactly what they please with no consequences! Cats have the best lives.

Tomorrow, Kitties Blue also will remember and honor their friend Lola from the blog, Lola, The Rescued Cat. She received her angel wings this past Tuesday and flew off to the Rainbow Bridge. You can leave condolences for Mom Dawn and fursib Lexy by clicking the link.

Thank you for joining us today. We look forward to seeing all your adorable faces tomorrow.

 

KIZMET & THE CRAZY CAT

Caturday Art

Raleigh and Kizmet are here in a photo from this past August.

Raleigh does enjoy instigating wrasslin’ matches, attack baths and paw races. If you could see Kizmet’s face, you would see an expression that says, “What’s up with you, crazy cat?”

 

 

Two cats in an art rendering, a buff-colored tabby on his back with tongue out and a grey cat looking at him like he's crazy.

 

To create my art, I used the Aubrey effect from Painnt. I added to that the Flux filter from piZap at 45 percent. The frame is from the favpng app.

Here’s your jigsaw puzzle. Have fun!

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is the day when you all put on your best smiles, fluff up your furs, feathers or whatever your bodies are covered with so you can shine and show yourselves off to your friends. Which of the Kitties Blue will be here representing is unknown at this time. I know that each of them are hoping one of the others will put their paw forward and step up to the challenge.

Please stop by tomorrow to find out which of our gang is your host and to participate in the blog hop.

Happy Caturday. Have a great one!

 

TWO TABBIES CATURDAY ART

Caturday Art

I caught Sawyer and Audrey snuggling at bedtime last night. Though, I was able to get some photos of them; I could not coax Sawyer to open his eyes.

I created two versions of the art. If you like one better than the other, let us know in the comments.

 

Two tabbies snuggling (one asleep and one awake) in colors of aqua, blue, purple, magenta and gold and framed for Caturday Art.

 

For this version of the art I used the Carrots effect from Painnt with a change in hue. To that I added Painnt’s Morning Ritual effect as well as a frame from favpng.

 

Two tabbies snuggling (one asleep and one awake) in colors muted colors and framed for Caturday Art.

 

I used the same effects from Painnt as described above for this version. To that I added the Parchment filter at 100 percent from piZap. Again the frame is from favpng.

I made a puzzle from each creation.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Tomorrow is a super special Sunday Selfies post. I could be secretive and make you wait until tomorrow to find out why, but I’m going to tell you. A certain large, ginger tabby cat does not want you to miss the post, as it is his seventh Gotcha Day. That’s right, seven years ago Coop came into our lives when he showed up at a friend’s house in the middle of a snow storm. When she called us, Dad Tom grabbed a PTU and walked the short distance to her house. That day, a cat we called “Not Charlie” was on his way to become a Kitties Blue. Tomorrow I will link to the first post where he was introduced.

And, of course, we’ll be having a party, and everyone is invited. You don’t even need to link up a selfie to come and party with us, but we hope you will. If you would like more information about Cooper Murphy prior to tomorrow, check out our “The Felines” page.

Thanks for joining us today. Have a meowvolous Caturday.

 

CATS, CHEESE & MICE

Caturday Art

Audrey and Kizmet are playing with one of their Christmas gifts. Two yellow mice dart in and out of a container resembling a wedge of cheese. Kizmet is a master at smacking the mouse when it peeks its head out.

To create the art of the playful girls, I used the A Simple Life effect from Painnt, which I tinkered with a bit. The frame is from favpng.

I made a puzzle for you as well.

I also have a bonus puzzle for you, which I made from an A.I. image I created using piZap.

Sunday Selfies Reminder

Sunday is the last day of the year and so the last Sunday Selfie post for 2023. It is difficult for me to believe another year is coming to a close. And, of course, you don’t want to miss out on that. I face my usual problem of finding one of the Kitties Blue amenable to taking and posting a selfie and being your host. I most likely will be sneaking up on some cat tomorrow to try to get a selfie.

Whichever of the Kitties Blue will be here tomorrow, s/he will be looking for you. I, too, will be looking for your adorable face. So, please don’t let us down.

Thanks for joining us today! Have a terrific Caturday!
