Caturday Art

This is Athena's mum here wanting to tell you about our Caturday Art Blog Hop.

I've been thinking about doing a blog hop for a while now and since I've never hosted one before I am a little nervous and confused. That's why I ask you to please bear with me if I get it wrong!

If you've been following our Caturday Art posts then you must have noticed that I absolutely love photography and enjoy playing around with all the free online photo editors available to create artistic photos of Athena. I love art too, but I was never any good at drawing or painting. However, I am a creative soul so photography art is a great outlet for me.

I've always been into photography but it's only recently (since I started this blog) that I have discovered a passion for it. And as Athena is my muse and makes a wonderful model, I really love taking photos of her (not all the time, obviously). Our photo sessions are very short and only occur once or twice a week. If she happens to be doing something unbelievably cute and I just have to capture it, well then I quickly take a snap. I also avoid using the flash as much as possible. I have sensitive eyes myself and really hate camera flashes, so I can only imagine what it must feel like for a cat.

So, for Caturday Art Blog Hop I would like all who wish to participate to just go ahead and have fun making your pet photos more artsy. I figured it would be an enjoyable and creative way for all of you to join in and see what we can all come up with.

This sounds like fun! I'll definitely be participating :)

I think this is an awesome idea - we will have to participate! My human uses Photoshop, and she enjoys playing around with it.

If I can ever get my lazy Mom moving, we will participate one of these days! Great idea!

Good idea! The Staff uses photoshop elements and also picmonkey and ribbet sometimes. We'll have a go, but maybe not this week, it depends on time! xx

That's great, everyone. Whenever you can participate, that's fine by me!

I know it's kind of short notice. But keep it in mind for next week :)

Some nice ideas here. Kizzie and I might join in another time - I have drawn her in pastels before. Never tried PicMonkey. Is it easy to use?
