Caturday Art: Grazing in the Grass


Today I don’t have to do a lot of blog hopping because I already submitted my entry to 52 Snapshots. I am participating in the Caturday Art Blog Hop hosted by Athena and Marie.

I decided to do something a bit different but nonetheless stunning. You know we believe that indoor cats should stay indoors because of all the dangers that lurk outside in the form of dogs, cars, crazy people who would poison cats, etc.

I’m an indoor cat who stays indoors but this week finds me lurking in the tall grass, waiting to pounce on something or someone. Yep, we’re playing around with Photoshop double exposures. One of the actions TW bought was a double exposure action which came with some cool textures.

We took this blurry image from analog film …


made another layer which we added the double exposure action and than the grass. We played around with the opacity till we got it the way we wanted (below). But it needed something more to make it art so we went with a white vignette border, which you can see above on the final art piece.


We didn’t exactly play along with the rules of the action so we made another one following directions this time. We put the original photo in one layer and the grass on another layer. One click combined them both. Here’s what we got. I know I prefer the image above cos I look more like I’m lurking and less like I’m made of grass. Which one do you like best?


I know you can get a double exposure with Pixaz and other online photo editors but sometimes it’s fun to pick your own scenery and do it from scratch. This kitteh likes to control the shots and this grass is making me itchy. Scratch, scratch.

Even thought I never left the condo, I’ve been grazing in the grass and it’s been a gas. Anybuddy wanna virtually join me for some fun and games?

  3. I think the final photo - the very top one - is great! I don't get to play in the grass either, even though I get to go out in a harness and leash, mainly because most of the grass here is brown!
