Valentines Day –

Students are to use Adobe Photoshop to create 2 Valentines cards – 1 that is made from a blank canvas, and one that is created with a background image.  Your valentines cards should be at least 1000 pixels wide, so that we may print them out.

Using all of your knowledge thus far, including selection tools, gradient tools, blending layers, adding effects to text, writing on a path, and filters, create 2 valentines cards using Adobe Photoshop.

Your cards should be better than the obama example below (although you may steal the joke).  You may use the card popularized by the simpsons for inspiration as well.

When you have completed your cards, you are to save them as .jpg files, and email to

2. Writing along a path – Yesterday, you learned writing along a path to create a circular logo, today try to continue that while using other shapes.  Try to create a triangular logo or an octagonal logo with writing – what looks best?
