HOW TO DRAW A BROKEN HEART IN MS WORD PART 1
MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 28 PART 1
TITLE: HOW TO DRAW A BROKEN HEART IN MS WORD
TYPE: GRAPHIC DESIGN
The heart shape is the symbol of love. But sometimes, the heart can also be broken. The saying, “You have broken my heart”, is just a figure of speech. In reality, a broken heart doesn’t literally crack or break into two as normally depicted in the media. On Valentine’s Day you’ll see a lot of graphic images with the heart shape as the theme.
Here is an easier way to draw a heart shape in MS Word. All you have to do is to draw a portion of the heart shape with the Curve line tool. It doesn’t really matter whether it is the left side or the right side. After completing the drawing, produce a copy of the shape and then rotate it horizontally to create the other half. Adjust the broken portion with the Edit Points tool. Join these two portions together and you now have a heart that is ‘broken’. Experiment with the graphics effects available in the Format tab in MS Word 2007 to get the desired effects. I find it easier to break the heart this way. Try drawing this on your own first. I’ll show how the drawing is done in the next post. By the way, blog readers are welcome to comment on the graphics posted on my blog so that I can make some improvement on its content.
