Caturday Art

Misty May Mirrored Tapestry Cat


Can you guess who this is? I am amazed that today’s Caturday Art actually began as a photograph. I will slowly work backwards to the original photo so you can see who posed for my art.

The above was created using PicMonkey’s Mirror Image and Pixelation. Here’s how the graphic looked prior to those additions.


Misty May Tapestry Cat


This rendition was created using the Starburst overlay in Dreamscope. I really like how it looks like a tapestry.

Finally, here is the original photo. It’s Misty May. I had to lighten it up a lot before I could use it. Even then it was super blurry.

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Cat4-001After last week’s groundhog selfies, two of the Kitties Blue have volunteered to be your hosts tomorrow. They do not like being upstaged by those garden scourges. When I discovered that we had two groundhogs, I told the kitties’ dad that I suspected we might actually have a third “little” groundhog. And indeed we do. I saw it yesterday afternoon accosting the sweet potato plant leaves. So, we do have an entire family of critters snacking about in the yard. MOUSES! Oops…I mean GROUNDHOGS!

Anyhoo, hope you’ll join us tomorrow. We had a great turnout last week. Kitties Blue and I are quite thankful for each of you who entered and/or commented last week.

Great and fun artwork, pals!

Love the Dreamscope one. Misty May, tell your Mom not to get insulted but the mosaic looks kinda schizophrenic.

I’m always so amazed at how creative you are with photo editing. I don’t even know how to properly brighten a photo on the computer, and here you are creating a beautiful digital tapestry out of one. Needless to say, we love your Caturday Art!

We’ll certainly be seeing you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies! Purrs!

Misty Mae, holy cow! Love seeing you so colorful. Thanx for sharing the art software. We use pic monkey but have never seen the pixilation area. We gotta get our human to check this out! Have a great weekend.
