OLD-FASHIONED CALISTA JO

by Janet Blue on June 13, 2015

Calista Jo is the subject of our Caturday Art today. I had planned to feature Lisbeth in the zebra-striped Catty Stack, but I was not satisfied with anything I created. Sorry Lisbeth!

After a search, I found a blurry photo of C.J. I thought would be fun for some experimentation. Here’s the finished product. I think it has an old-fashioned look that you might find in a scrapbook from by-gone days.

 

old-fashioned

 

I created this week’s art using AdornPic and finished it off with the scrolled flower overlay and black edging from piZap. I probably went overboard again, but I like the final look.

 

old-fashionedThis is the original photo. Not only is it blurry, but I didn’t like the reflection off the fridge or the prominence of the brown cabinet in the background. And my eye was totally drawn to her shiny, bright name tag. All of those things are now camouflaged.

The funny thing is the final art doesn’t look blurry which is why we use blurry pics for our art. o, you didn’t go overboard.

I just love the way this turned out. I think it looks like a crackly, old oil painting.
