"Circle of Hearts"

"Circle of Hearts"---a new project by Mary Stebbins Taitt, in a technique which was suggested to her by Kate Jackson.

I understand from Mary that this project is "still under construction", and we may see updates later.


MARY SAYS: "After seeing Kate's tree circle, and loving it I wanted to learn that technique. I tried several earlier attempts from which I learned this: to get a full circle using Polar Coordinates, you need to use a square and place the items you want to make a circle of about 1/4 of the way up the square, all the way across. Then you simply apply the Polar Coordinates filter in Photoshop and presto, you have a circle. A little tweaking of the elements ahead of time seems to produce the best results. You want them to be even and symmetrical for the best results."

I didn't mention that first I constructed the hearts concentrically.
