Caturday Art: Paisley's Valentine

For Today's Caturday Art, Real Cat Paisley wanted to send you a slightly early valentine. She got some help from old SoLT to make this picture, which we are entering in Athena's Caturday Art blog hop:

Old SoLT made this in PicMonkey. Well, first she imported the original photo into Lightroom to crop it, adjust the exposure and lighten the shadows. Then it was over to PicMonkey, where she applied a Soften effect, followed by the Ombre Amour and Bokeh Hearts effects, a Frost effect, and more Bokeh Hearts. Then she added the text and a drop shadow border.

Here's the original:


  1. That's really nice, Paisley. You are surrounded by love :) Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

  2. Love the heart bokeh you added, Paisley! That's a really nice card. It's much better than the V-Day cards they sell in the stores.

  3. Beautiful. I have been copping what others are doing and creating a file that I can reference to learn how to make art
