Mom had a really blurry photo of me that she decided to use for today’s art project. I asked if she would please do something romantic that my boyfriend, Cat Scout Charles, would like.

She decided to use a photo editing program we hadn’t tried in a while: Ribbet. Here is our creation for this week.




First, Mom selected this textured effect from a whole bunch of available textures. These did not have names. Then she added the polished mirror frame in a pale pink to match my nose color. Last was the Heart’s Desire effect, which added a glow around my face.

I’m pretty excited to be featured on the blog for the second day in row, especially as you don’t get to see that much of me.

DesireThis is the original blurry photo.


We are participating in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. If you desire to view the other submissions or add one of your own, click on their badge at the right.



Finally, we will be hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop tomorrow. We had our best ever turnout last week with a total of 57 submissions (including our own).

We have noticed that some bloggers are doing Sunday Selfies but not entering our blog hop. If you happen upon any of those blogs while visiting, please ask them to join us.

Also, if you’d like to enter but are having problems linking, just leave us a comment, and if possible, we will enter it for you.

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Purrs and paw-pats (with kisses for Charles), Lisbeth

That is a very creative way of saving blurry photos, i love the texture and the end result as well. I wouldn’t have thought of that, i should give it a try.

My beautiful, sweet Ms Lisbeth. My heart goes “pitter-pat” when I look at you. I love how this creation turned out but then anything that has you in it would be beautiful. Thank your mom and your fur sibs for letting you be the the featured kitty today.
Smooches, nose kisses and my love to Ms Lisbeth,
C S Charles

Lisbeth you looked almost quilted in that graphic, but your Mom helped turn a blurry photo into a masterpiece which you are by the way!
See you tomorrow!
BTW we also noticed when we were visiting last week for SS that there were some who did not join the hop. We tried to get around to nearly everyone. We hope everyone feels encouraged to do the same.

Very nice art. Glad you are getting more time on the blog.


mariodacat February 28, 2015 at 12:20 pm

That is a very interesting effect. Good way to use up a photo that might be blurry as you said yours was. Can’t tell that it’s blurry in the finished project.
