Glittery Astrid


This week’s Caturday Art features Astrid. I tinkered around with this photo in PicMix, Picasa and PhotoFaceFun but can’t tell you more than that. I feel this is one of my least successful creations. A poet that I was taking a class from years ago told me that most poems are never truly finished but rather abandoned. That’s how I feel about this “art.” I got tired of fiddling with it, put a border around it and called it done.

The portion of this created in PicMix turned the photo into an animated image, but I could not get it to save in the gif format. All the sparkles and glittery stars are now static and less apparent.

We are entering Athena and Marie’s wonderful Caturday Art Blog Hop. To add and/or view the submissions, click on their badge. I mentioned last week that I have compiled a list of free photo editing applications. If anyone would like a copy of the list, let me know in a comment.

You all know by now what follows Caturday Art…Sunday Selfies. At this point I have no idea who will be hosting. No one has stepped forward to volunteer.

Cat4-001We had 61 entries last Sunday, and the kitties did not have an opportunity to visit all your blogs. They are ashamed and pray you will accept their apologies. Fiona’s health issue has made for even more turmoil than we are accustomed. They promise to make every effort to do better this week.

We truly are thankful for your support of our blog and the blog hop. And we especially appreciate all the purrs, prayers and POTP for Fiona. We hope you will consider continuing them for the unforeseeable future.

Hugs, Mom Janet & purrs and paw-pats, Kitties Blue
