I never expected that I could turn a somewhat blurry photo of a solid grey cat into something as interesting as this week’s Caturday Art Blog Hop submission. With my usual over-kill, I started with my normal photo editing program, Picasa. I used the Lomo-ish, HDR-ish and Orton-ish filters and tinkered with the settings in each one. I believe I used them in the order listed.
On the left below is the original photo after I cropped and lightened it so that Giulietta wasn’t an indistinguishable mass of floofiness. That turned some of her furs reddish. The image on the right is what I had after applying the three filters.
The final creation was made using the Crayon Drawing feature in funny.pho.to.
I am joining Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop again this week. To view the other submissions or add one of your own, click on Athena’s Badge.
Tomorrow will be our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. I truly hope each of you who stop by will decide to enter a selfie.

That is a really fun effect and would make a very nice greeting card printed out. We just discovered photo effects and learning how to apply them but nothing to show for it yet. =^,,^=
