Valentine's clipart and graphics - make it in Pages



You can read the detailed how-to post here and read a 2011 article with another heart here

This is a small bit of Valentine's clipart hand-made by me in Pages with just the tools available in the programme.

Total time: 20 minutes. Result: lots of love to - and from - my loved ones.

There are four shapes. Two hearts are drawn with the free drawing tool under Shapes menu (last option in the drop-down menu). The arrow is from the Character palette>Arrows.

There are several hearts in the Character Palette you can use to create your own clip art and there are jem hearts in iChat icons folder - use them as well.

I will post a more detailed description of how to make this graphic design in a few days, but if you stopped by to have a look at this post why not listen to Georgi Sviridov's Romance, possibly the greatest piece of love music ever created.
