Caturday Art: Paisley Plays with the Dog's Stuff

Sometimes Real Cat Paisley watches Resident Dog Layla playing and tries to figure out what the heck she's doing. One day recently, Paisley saw Layla and old SoLT using the BUSTER ActivityMat, starter set w/3 activities (affiliate link) and noticed that the dog was having trouble understanding the peg that closes the envelope thingie. As soon as the dog went outside, Paisley jumped in and figured the peg out right away. We imagine she was thinking, "You just push it out of the way, dummy." To which Layla might have replied, "Hurrh?" (Layla is really very smart, but she just can't figure out that peg!)

To make this art, old SoLT started in LunaPic by bumping the saturation way up and applying the Brave art effect at 56%. Then in Photoshop, she messed around with some lighting effects and applied the Oil Paint filter.

And here's the original:
