CATURDAY ART ~ The Tissue Paper Cat

First, photos of some red tissue paper and green tissue paper.
Then layer the photo of  Zoey over it, and fade Zoey to about 70% and soften some of
her edges until they almost disappear into the tissue paper.
Then using another overlay in "multiply" only in certain areas, add more red color, and do the
same adding more green color to the entire photo.  Then add overall contrast and use the 
unsharpen mask.  Roughen the edges with the jagged brush tool.
Lastly use the crumple tool over the entire, flattened photo.  Result: a tissue paper cat.
And that's our CATURDAY ART.

MUGGING ON MONDAY

If you happened to see our Saturday post, you know there was a birthday in our house.  Well, I guess the First Rule for becoming "age five" is no longer sitting still for a nice birthday photo.  "C 'mon," says Grandma, "let me take a nice birthday picture of you and your Mommy ... is everybody ready ... say cheeseburger!".

CATURDAY ART
Each week, Athena and Marie sponsor Caturday Art.  This week [below] we are
"showing off" more holiday headers designed for blogging friends. It is such a pleasure to work on
all these photo-art designs ~ and one primary reason is because in so doing, we often
get to know the pets and their owners so much better!  To design a header we usually
scroll through a blog back many months, sometimes even a year or more ... it gives us a feel
for their lives, what is important to them and the stories they tell.
It's an absolute joy to work this way as it allows us to share in their lives.
