The CARTOONATIC app is where it’s at


with my handy dandy favourite app.

I have declared FRIDAY as app loving friday.  There you go, I have a habit of creating national holidays. Everyone, leave work, and go and download this funky app called CARTOONATIC.

 It’s friday, hopefully your absence will go by un~noticed…

if only for a quick moment.

It works on any phone.  It will make your life better and prettier.

 Well, maybe not, but you will have learned something new and tried something funky.

The icing on the cake is that this app makes your photo taking skills look so brilliant.  It will seem as if you painted the picture or edited it on some in-depth photo edit program.  Something that was surely difficult and complicated.  BUT NOOOooooo.  It is EASY !


Cartoonatic – Cute Harley Effect

 It is great to jump at all chances to appear brilliant.  I do it, especially in front of my children.

 I like to exude brilliance.

These moments don’t come by every ~ single ~ day.

  For every one of these pictures~ just know ~ NOTHING IS EDITED.  Ok, I normally don’t have a whole lotta filter.  This time, I am referring to the actual photographs.  Every picture is in the raw.


 Zero edit

 I shot all pics from the tree house.  I am having such a hoot in that tree house.

 I think I should start a club.

A designer club.

With club house passwords and everything.  Wait, wait, I have one.  Hello my twitter friends in the #tweehouse.

Lost Strawberry effect

So miss smarty pants that I am, thought I was some big fat expert in Cartoonatic.  It took my 12-year-old son to help me realize that the app also has a bizmillion effects in it.

 That app already had me excited when I realized it had a sketch effect.

Silver Mitch Effect

 My adorable son helped me learn on a whole new level.  Gotta love a new playing field.   And an adorable son.

 Every picture looks like a drawing.  For a mosaic artist {like moi} that is over the moon exciting.

 Can you dream of all the possibilities ?  And all with your TELEPHONE CAMERA !!! I’m screaming now.

Scarlet Moka Effect

If you are like me, I like an app that is smooth to navigate around.

 I don’t want to take the time to read * read * read.

I just wanna play * play * play and take a ton of pictures.

I like to work hard and play hard, so time is of the essence.

I need the time to read, to chill, to work.  Don’t we all?  Time “to do things” matters.

I just push all the buttons in the app until I find what I really want.

I roll like that.

Dang, I can't figure out this effect, but it is in there. Promise

You do not need a fancy dancy hoopla of a camera to take some funky shots.

P.S.  It also creates video !!  I am going to need waaaaay more coffee to start working my way into video.  That app had me at all the bazillion effects.

 I am not easily excited.  Ok, I am.

Big Baby effect

 While working (aka, reading and taking pictures) in the  tree house …..  Guess what Michael was up to in the tree fort-tress?

Yup, helpful. :-).

Honey Bee effect

It was a bit of a crisp cool day.  I lit the fire in the tree house wood stove.  I didn’t even burn it down.  I should get a prize for that.  Non?

This next one is one of my favourites.  I play favourites.

Now I declare, that is a pretty awesome way to create ART, without a paint brush.

 It took the click of a button.

Robotron Sr Effect

Even as an artist, you can take your shots, and then use them to recreate other art.

Mosaic art.

Or a painting.

 It takes the guess-work out of shading and colour placement.

 Everyone will think you are brilliant.

Except me.  Now, when I make a mosaic from a photo, everyone will know where my brilliance came from.

The cat is out of the bag.

I like to share my secrets


in turn

share my brilliance.

  2. The LAST thing I need is another quality photo app. I’ve been using Paper Camera and am as enthralled with it, as you are with this one. BUT, I’ve just downloaded yours. It’ll have to wait though while I go look at your treehouse photos.

    Waaooo !
    What a nice result …
    But it is easier with Lynne pictures to obtain such a result than with mines

    And I keep in mind the idea of a new International Friday of holliday to test this App !

    Cheers, Nicolas.
