Caturday Art with Athena CatGoddess

Hi Pals,

I talked M into doing an artsy thing tonight because we've missed the last couple of Caturday Art Blog Hops.    She said she was "dog" tired (whatever that means), but would do it for me cuz she loves me!

Here's the original photo @JessieJaney's human (Jane) made for me for the Gilligan's Island pawty for Nipclub a couple of years ago.   Didn't Janey do a fantastic job?
M used her photo in Photoshop Elements 10 (cuz we've had the program for a couple of years and M needs lots of practice).   She clicked on an Effect called "Ink Outline."    Then clicked on "Scalloped Edge to give the extra border.  The she clicked on black paint to paint that border.   Then she had to "Merge" the Layers, then "Flattened" the image and saved to her desk top.  Walla - we have a little different effect from the original picture that Jane made for me.   M likes to play around, but doesn't have much time to play anymore.,

Check Out Athena CatGoddess' Blog to see her neat picture and to find the other involved in the blog hop.  They always have so many cool and interesting pictures that mostly were created with free photo editing programs on the internet.   

Until next time.

Neat effect, Mario. M did a great job! We so understand about being "dog" tired -- somehow it's more tired than "cat" tired.

I like the vibrant colors Mario. And the fancy edges make it very artistic, like a poster.

That came nice. M has a creative side unlike TW. I remember that pawty. She made a cute av for me too.
