Sleeping Cat Caturday Art

Today’s Caturday Art features a snoozing Mauricio. He was lying on the kitchen counter atop my placemat and napkin. Before you say, “ew,” we weren’t eating at the time. Some of you will still cringe at the thought of him being there. Sorry, but we lost control years ago! To be honest, we were just happy he was sleeping and not running his mouth.

To create today’s art, I used PicMonkey. I started with the photo of Mauricio (below) and added three textures. The first texture was the photo of ice (on the right) taken by Dad Tom. After that, I added PicMonkey’s burst and clouds textures. Finally I added the frame in Picasa.
