Caturday Art: Pastel Puss


pretty in pastel


Creating the art for today’s blog hop required many steps. I began in LunaPic with a variety of edits to the original photograph. Once I had what I liked I added the graphic overlay using piZap. I selected it as I liked how the dots in the graphic mimicked the dots making up the cat’s body. I added the frame using Picasa.

I am usually pleased with what I have created, but I believe this is one of my favorite entries to date. What do you think?

I am not going to share the original photograph, which I usually do. I know I am going to use the unaltered photo again in the future so want to hold it back. As I am doing that, it gives you the opportunity to guess which Kitty Blue this is. This could be a tough one. Dad Tom guessed three times without selecting the correct cat.

This is my entry in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. To enter art of your own and/or view the other submissions, click on Athena’s badge.

Is it Lizbeth or Misty May? I really love what you did with this picture. I like the colors. They’re so cheerful and the design is just so fun.

To answer your question on our fill-ins if mom believes in the supernatural, it’s a little complex. Although I do, it’s in the context of believing that all things are in the hands of God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Within that context, I most definitely do.

I love love love art that uses pastel colors, and this is no exception. So pretty! I am going to take a shot in the dark and guess that this is Calista Jo. Purrs, and we’ll see you for selfies tomorrow (even active Eddy sort of sat still for one!)!

That is probably the best one yet! I love it. I would have thought it took a while to do as it looks complex but lovely.

That did come out great, it took me a minute to find the kitty. I think it is Lily Olivia, not sure though. You should get this printed on a canvas. XO
