Caturday Art: Old-Timey Paisley

We kept things very simple for Athena's Caturday Art blog hop this week. Old SoLT took a new photo of Real Cat Paisley that she likes a lot and did some old-timey things to it in PicMonkey. First she did a Daguerreotype effect, followed by a Daguerreotype frame, followed by a Sketchedy frame. That was it! Simple, but we think the effect is to really focus attention on Paisley's face, and especially her eyes.

Here's the original:

  1. Beautiful vintage look!

  2. That vintage look is neat. We may get Mom to try it next. She tried to add a frame to ours today, but it disappeared!

  3. That's fantastic! Torties are classic beauties so vintage works great on them :)

  4. Very pretty effect, of course Paisley is always beautiful.

  5. Great job. I love the vintage look and you captured it very well.

  6. That really does look old-timey! Great pic!
