Caturday Art: Headshot

Today’s Caturday Art project was created in Photoshop Elements. When mom applied the poster edges filter to this photo, I told her she had used this effect before, but she likes it so much I couldn’t get her to change it. Here’s the original photo. I’m sitting in my favorite window where I have the best view of BirdTV. (Tabbies, just read that SquirrelTV.)

This is the older project she did (one of our first projects for Caturday Art) using this filter. She liked that one so much she even used it for my Christmas card last year.

Caturday Art version one Now, if you’ve been following my blog at all, you probably know that mom just can’t leave well enough alone. She decided that this was a little dark so she lightened it a bit then added a an orange layer at 15% opacity to give it a warmer feel.

Caturday Art version 2I made her stop here. I have to do that frequently because she really can get carried away. Who knows how many variations she’d show you if I let her!

Have a great Caturday.

    You know that our mom can never let well enough alone when she is doing our Saturday Art. Like our Calista Jo, you furs are made to be manipulated as they can look so many different ways. Mom likes the darker next to last photo best. Please join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
