Satan on holidays .. or not! (part 3)

Hello eveyone, it’s satan the cat again!
I thought i’d pop on and write another blog before my pre-dinner nap and let you all know that i’ve been told i MUST stay here and guard the house while Pixie and Rich go to Egypt!
I found out that they weren’t going to Turkey so don’t really mind! I’ve heard that the Egyptians are rather fond of cats but it’s going to be way too hot at this time of year and my black fur and I can’t handle too much heat, so while there away scuba diving i’ll be here with the lovely lady who lives next door for company.
She’s such a nice lady and remembers to brush me before i have my breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight feast unlike Pixie who only brushes me before my breakfast!
I’ll kick up a fuss though and ignore Pixie and Rich when they start packing their bags and ignore them both again when they arrive home to make them think i’m not happy staying here with the lady next door, it’d only upset them if they thought i won’t miss them!

 

Anyway enough of me now and i’ll tell you what Pixie has been up to this week with her Hippy Gift Shop.
So far i’ve been thrown off her lap 4 times in a fit of excitement as she’s gained another 4 Todays Best Awards for these items in her shop

She’s also been updating her ‘about me and my art and photography’ squidoo lens that you can see here Squidoo lens – about me and my art It features a rather attractive picture of myself too so i’m quite happy about that.

I’m off for my nap now and am going to start practicing my sulking impressions in time for when they go away!

Satan on holidays

Hi everyone, its me again, Satan the cat!
I thought i’d pop on again and tell you all about my latest thoughts.

 

Between my after dinner nap and my before going to bed nap, I like to watch TV. It is amazing what you can learn from the TV and the other day I was absolutely astonished. I discovered that there are many dogs who take their humans on holiday. I could see them playing on the beach and running through the woods. Now, I don’t normally think much of dogs because they are so inferior to cats, but this really impressed me. What a great idea! I am going to persuade Pixie and Rich to let me take them on holiday. I will let you know how I get on.

 

In the meantime Pixie has been ignoring me as she’s been far to busy with her work, she’s working on a graphics project for a local client, a filming project for a not so local client, as well as adding lots of new canvas prints and photo prints to her shops, she’s also added some new designs to her hippy gift shop, heres a few of her latest products.

 

 

As well as all of this pixie has created a lens on squidoo.com to showcase the awards she’s won for some of the items in her shops over the last few months as well as some of her favorite todays best awards from other shops.

 

  Time for a nap now….

Hey everyone, I’ve had a busy week this week adding new products to my NEW Hippy Gift Shop I can’t belive it’s actually online now and open to the public after months and months of thought and preparation!

I’ve also just published another lens on Squidoo.com to celibrate my love of purple!
You’ll find a huge range of gifts as well as loads of interesting information and facts about this lovely colour here www.squidoo.com/purple-gifts

Along with all of that i’m STILL decorating my house, I’m getting quite used to sitting in a living room thats full of kitchen!
We finally took the plunge and picked a new kitchen though so just have to wait 7 weeks for it to be delivered and fitted!
I’m sure we’ll be sick of living off take-aways and sandwiches by then and i really can’t wait to get my shiny, sparkly, black worktops that have glitter!! ….. mmm shiny things!!

How to create kaleidoscope fractal art from your photos

People always ask me how I create my kaleidoscope fractal art so thought i’d put this tutorial together on my blog for all to see.

I create my kaleidoscopes in photoshop and start with at least one base picture (it’s good to choose a picture that has lots of colours, patterns or textures to get a really crazy psychedelic looking work of art.)
You then take a triangle shaped section of this picture, copy it, then rotate and flip it so it mirrors the first section, then keep copying and rotating the sections untill it fills up the canvas.
Watch this youtube video to see exactly how!

When you’ve made your first piece of fractal art you can then copy and paste it to repeat the pattern or create another kaleidoscope from another photo and combine these images to make something even more interesting.

You’ll find even more youtube tutorials and examples on my squidoo site here

www.squidoo.com/top-10-fractal-tutorials

Here’s a few examples of my kaleidoscope creations, they’re all available to buy in my shop along with lots of other designs.
I hope you enjoy making your own kaleidoscope art.
