Running With An Idea

By LynneJoyce  
I was scanning some drawings, many of which were patterns inside hearts (see scanned starter image in V1) when I thought of creating heart shaped frame for photographs and I ran with the idea. It is quite a challenge finding the right image and than placing it within the frame because normal composition 'rules' don't apply in a non regular frame like this. It made for an interesting and time consuming challenge, but hey, if we don't challenge ourselves we never learn.

Anyway, here are the results. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

Very lovely, and so very different in your framing, Lynne! SmileSmile Like John, I especially go for V3, with the flower emerging from its frame, but all very excellent Smile

A lovely set Lynne. A great idea and it's worked really well. My favourite is your drawing and then the ones with all the flowers filling the heart. You could use your one with your drawing in it for your UA.

I like V3 with the petal escaping the confines of the frame.

What a good idea, Lynne - it's good to see the world through some different 'windows'
Excellent work and very enjoyable to view.

That's a very different and original form of presentation and from your choice of images, it seems to work rather nicely.
Seems iniquitous to select a favourite as I like them all but if pushed I'd probably select version 2, a floral image, and then the one with the moon.

A great way to spend a sleepless night Lynne - you're an inspiration to us all.
You already know that I love your hand drawn image - V1- the roses work very well too
and a great exercise is seeing what fits those heart shaped frames.

The out-of-bounds cosmos is my favourite, closely followed by V12 of the tree/scene. A very interesting concept that has worked extremely well.

What an inspired idea, Lynne, wonderful set, v's 11 and 12 just favourites, but all top notch - outside the box and very beautiful!
