 Caturday Art Blog Hop


Red Christmas


neonSisters Giulietta and Fiona are joining Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today with a pencil sketch in red. They are in one of their usual nighttime sleeping spots on the bench in the upstair’s bathroom.

The photo was edited using only Picasa. After being cropped, I used the “I’m feeling lucky,” tool to remove an artificial gold color from the photo. Next I used the pencil sketch filter followed by adding the red color. I then applied the glow filter followed by the soften filter to blur the edges. The final step was adding the frame.

My favorite part of the photo is Fiona’s whiskers.

What beautiful ladies we have in this picture. Your red addition to the photo shows us the energy coming from these two gals.

You two are so beautiful! Love the red – very festive. The falling snowflakes are great too! You girls stay warm cuddled up together like that – we know it must be cold up in VA. Sampy sends warm hugs and soft kitty kisses to Astrid, and we all send love and hugs!

That almost looks like a Photoshop action. BTW, a funny pop-up just came on my screen in the middle of my comment. it was weird. I have read that sometimes the snow contains malware and puts it on the blogs.
