I used Ribbit to create Lily Olivia’s deconstructed portrait. I hadn’t used it in quite a while and discovered some new effects I previously had not tried. I selected the Random Pixelation, Slicer and Crystallize effects (in that order). I added the Confetti frame, also from Ribbet. I am very pleased with this as Lily is still totally recognizable.

deconstructedHere’s the original photo for comparison. Lily Olivia was sitting on the kitchen island waiting for her dad to finish his cereal so she could lap up any leftover milk from his bowl. However, it wasn’t really the milk she wanted. She wanted the Cheerios. She is a crazy cereal cat. Our angel Steamer was the same way. I had to stand in the middle of the kitchen to eat my cereal to keep her out of it. That never phased her. She’d leap right onto my back with claws extended! Ouch!
