Caturday Art: Belated Box Day

Hey everybody, it's Truffles! Since we had another commitment yesterday, we're celebrating International Box Day a day late. I love boxes SO much. It's the best part of a package delivery...who cares what's actually *inside* the box? (Unless it's something for me, of course.)

Mommy went through her pictures and picked out her favorite "Truffles in a box" picture from the past year. I think I was pretty cute that day too. Don't you love how I tipped the box over and made a bed out of the packing paper inside?


We wanted to use the same picture for our Caturday Art this week too, and started playing around with various effects in Pho.to. We ended up going with the Pencil Painting effect. Mommy says it looks like I've sought shelter in a cardboard box from the pouring rain, and if I were an outdoor kitty that wouldn't be too far from the truth! In May we were practically in drought conditions, but since the first of June we've gotten 6 inches of rain. I know it's nothing compared to what the poor people in Texas and Oklahoma have gone through, but still, enough already!!!


Thanks to Ann at Zoolatry for the adorable Box Day graphic!

That's a great box, Truffles. And your use of the packing paper as a bed and pillow is briliant! :)

Truffle looks really "into the moment" in that box! Enjoy the art effect afterwards. What a sweetie! Thanx for visiting us in our boxes on Box day!
