Astrid has been getting a lot of face time (or in this case, belly time) on the blog lately. It is probably not a surprise as she is my little shadow and constant companion. Though she actually spent some time on the Catio yesterday morning, she mostly slept on the counter snuggled up to the computer.

When I pestered her, she rolled on her back to expose her belly. She gave me that give-me-scritches look. Well, who could resist that? Not me.

To create today’s “art” I used one of the premium features in Ribbet! It is from the Sandbox Effects and entitled, Slicer. Unfortuntaely, I cannot remember what I did after that and was unable to recreate it when I tried. Finally I added a Confetti frame from the same program. This reminds me a little of creating a picture using a Lite Brite.

Astrid BellyAstrid asked me not to show the original photo as she finds it a bit immodest, but I told her we are among friends and it would be okay. Plus I convinced her that Sampy would like it.

Me and my mom have to admit that without the original photo we couldn’t tell what it was 🙂
But it looks very arty and that´s the whole point with Caturady ARt , right 🙂

Astrid, I’m glad you shared the original photo because in your art photo, I imagined you turned around the other way. It’s a very neat effect for an abstract rendering. Your original photo isn’t too racy because my attention was drawn to your gorgeous eyes.

Angel AbbyGrace August 23, 2014 at 12:17 pm

Astrid your furrs hide all modesty, so no need to worry and beside your lovely gorgeous lush furrs are stunning. Great graphic today!
