Sweet Potato Hearts Design


How I made this Heart Botanical Design

December 3, 2010

Someone from Your Garden Show (a great site for gardeners) asked me how I made this particular design, and I thought others would be interested in it’s construction too.

Sweet Potato Leaf Pattern

This image is made up of 2 actual leaves.

One is the dark purple one, the other is a leaf that is just emerging and is folded in half. The folded leaf reminds me of the hearts I made in elementary school where you drew half the heart on a folded paper and cut it out. I use Photoshop for all this work.

I suppose this would have been good to save for Valentine’s Day, but here you go, it is early!

The purple leaves are mature, the green ones are the leaves while still developing, still folded in half with delicate veins.
