Happy Valentine’s Day

In a recent rollicking phone conversation with a fellow Nature Printing Society member, Jeanne (who lives near Chicago) divulged that she’s now pulling out prints from her stash to give as gifts to friends—to the delight of her friends.

I’ve been doing the same thing, as shown by the composition below. I was in a hurry (what else is new?) to make a Valentine for my husband. After assembling some disparate nature prints on my work table, I took a photo of the physical montage. I then scanned a watercolor/pastel heart that originally was the image in an ad for heart scans offered to patients by a radiological-practice client of ours. In Photoshop, I drew the swirly, transparent path through the artwork. The images were assembled from two layers in an InDesign layout and reproduced as a card. What’s in your stash that will delight your Valentine?
