I realised I had to make the heart so I used some twine and made the heart. I then set about photographing it against various backgrounds. I hung it on the fence, put it on a woodpile lying in the yard, on the grass.... Then I came inside and tried it on various surfaces from carpet, to cushions to curtains and the couch.... I had lots of shots.
I then carefully edited down to 9 images. I find editing so hard to do. I flip back and forth between two almost identical shots looking for that little something that makes one look better than the other. And I find hitting the delete button very hard to do!!
When I took them in to be printed I decided to look at what other effects I could use and I loved how they looked in sepia. So I ordered sets in colour and in sepia.
I also put a heart in a frame for each of my little family to keep in their rooms or on their desks to remind them how much I love them.
And as usual I printed too many so am now thinking of other ways to use them up - thank you cards, a framed heart collage???? You can't really go wrong with too many hearts can you?
And while I was writing this blog I used the rest of the cake balls to make some cake pops for our Soup groupers tonight - these ones were white and looked sweet.... I just had a great idea that they could be snowballs for Christmas with a little blue sugar on them......... YES!
