Friday Flashback and caturday Art.

This week the Flashback comes from April 2012 and is called:

Wrassling.

Flynn:  Hey Eric, do you fancy a rassle?

Eric:  You know me Flynn, I'm always up for it.




Yes, Flynn is under there somewhere!

Eric:  Ouch! Stop bunny kicking my head!

Eric:  Do you submit Flynn?

Flynn:  Never!

Eric:  Well I'll stop if you do.
Flynn:  Oh okay then.

Phew! Need a good rest after that.

I have used the third from last photo for my Caturday Art.

As usual I used Lunapic and started with Picasso at 50%, followed by Sunshine at 30% then Landscape at 35%. I then added a narrow bevelled edge.
You can see more art by visiting Athena, The Cat Goddess.


Of course there is also a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go do it on Jigsaw Planet.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from April 2012 and is called:

The Scary Intruder.


Eric: We were in the field happily nomming on grass,

When suddenly I spied something that shouldn't be there.

I had to have a second look! An introoder had dared to come into our field!

I will sneak around from the side and catch him unawares. He will be scared when he sees me puffed up.


Huh? Who put that plastic bag in our field?

Of course I knew all along it was just a bag. How dare mum question my mancatliness and call me a scaredy cat. I was only practicing puffing up for when introoders do introod.

For my Caturday Art this week I have made 2 versions of the third photo. I always seem to use the darker more autumnal colours lately so have tried some different layers this week.

#1 still has a lot of the darker greens but not the browns.
I started with Fairy at 35%, then Tattoo also at 35% and finished with Quirky at 25%.

#2 is very different to the colours I usually look for.
I started with Beauty at 50%, then Floating at 20% finishing with Fantasy at 55%. Which is your favourite?

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from March 2012.

Eric: We have had good weather for the last week and it is getting warmer every day. The forecasters have said it will last well into next week, so I am getting my easy on the shelf of our purrison cage.

It's tiring work rolling in the sun.
The cage is only a purrison when it is bolted to the garage wall when the Beans go away. The rest of the time it is left on the edge of the lawn so we can sunbathe on the shelf.

It is a very good place for relaxing.

Might as well have a quick lick while I am here.

And a yawn and stretch.

Flynn: I prefer to lie on dad's concrete blocks.

They get nice and warm in the sun.

And I like to push my feet against the garage wall.

Eric: I am glad Flynn prefers the blocks because that means I get the shelf all to myself!

I have used the last photo for my Caturday Art. I forgot to write down what I did but think I started with Tuscany at 50%,,Sunshine at 30% and finished with Landscape at 20%. I then added a drop shadow border and then gave it a narrow bevelled edge.

I have also made it into a puzzle which you can do by clicking on the small picture.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from March 2012 and is called:

To Pounce or Not?
Flynn: Look at Eric, he doesn't know I am watching him.

Now he's rolling. Shall I pounce on him?

I'm getting ready.

Eeek!!! He's seen me!!!

Eric: What was that all about?

I didn't think any of these photos were suitable for Caturday Art so I found another "Pounce" photo and used that instead.
I used Freda at 40% followed by Tuscany at 40% and finishing with Landscape at 20%.


You can find more Caturday Art with Athena the Cat Goddess.

I have of course also made the art into a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet.

The Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the Flashback comes from March 2012 and is called:
Why?
Eric: Why are you shouting at me to get down? My feet are nowhere near the worktop.

Look carefully. Am I touching the worktop? I thought not, so what's your problem?

Flynn: I'm a good boy. You won't catch me up there.

I have used the second photo for my Caturday Art. As usual I used Lunapic starting with Landscape at 50%, Then Tuscany at 40% finishing with Sunshine at 20%.
