2012/044: Light My Heart…
… on fire!
* A big thank you to Brian and his editing skills, for perfecting the edges of the heart. It was a bit sloppy, with matches gone wild in the original!
He wasn’t skilled enough to light my heart, though, the flames were added by me 😉
*edited to add the “before” version:
*Not skilled enough* eh !!.. Lol.. Maybe I’ll remember that next time… 😉 Was quite amusing though, a Canon user having to tidy up a picture taken on a Nikon… And YES, it was definitely the camera that made them look sloppy.. 😉
Do love it though Michaela, and it would look so cool ACTUALLY oon fire too..

Shut up, it was NOT the camera! 😛 And that’s right, NO skills! Didn’t take much to add a few little flames 😉
I think yesterday’s would look better actually lit…. I don’t think you would still be able to make out the heart shape of this one. (Might need a firetruck on standby, too! LOL)

I’m confused….what was edited besides the fire? I would love to see it on fire too…maybe start w/ just lit one here or there and wait for it to grow.
very concept, love it!

Thanks, Doreen 🙂
I added the sloppy “before” version for you.

Once again, I am telling you how clever you are – kind of sounding like a broken record, aren’t I? The color of the match heads is so striking (pun intended) against the white!

Thanks, Cyndi 🙂

The before version was pretty darn good considering how hard that must have been to stand them up in that shape! But the edit definitely tightened them up! I think I may even like the pre-flame version the best!

Thanks, Amy. I like the pre-flame version the best, too. Wasn’t that difficult to stand them up, once I figured out how to KEEP them that way without falling over 😉

The flames are very nice. I still wonder what they would have looked like with real flames. I love the heart anyway.

Thanks, laveta 🙂

Today and yesterdays pics are both awesome! I think it was much safer to skip the real flames, unless you could set them up in a metal cooking sheet or something.

This was all done inside, and there was no way I was going to light this many matches 😉
I do plan on trying this outside sometime, though. Most likely with yesterday’s heart, because this one was too much work to get set up.

I love your creative match-hearts – and the fire – it HAD TO come too 😉

So cool! Your creativity is on fire!!!!! 🙂

Way cool seems like the wrong comment for something on fire, but it is right at the same time! 😉
