Sometimes I just start out with a design and it just grows from there. I had no idea I’d end up in Santa Fe when I started this. Nor did I know that Santa Fe means “holy faith”. My Second Life partner built a very southwestern styled house in Second Life this week, so that’s probably a large part of the influence here. The heart reminds me of an amulet.
I started out with some free vector shapes I downloaded. My intent was to make a design like the graphic t-shirts that are so popular. I love those. My muse went off in it’s usual direction, however. At any rate, entirely done in Photoshop with vector shapes and layer styles.
