I'm pretty newbish to vector art, so please bare with me.
I made a heart shape using compound paths. I also have vector image in a flame pattern. I want to wrap/distort/whatever the flame pattern to the heart. The idea is pretty straightforward - a heart wreathed in flames.
Here's a rough idea of what I'm trying to do.
Here's where I am so far. Using flame vector art I found online, I made an art brush and applied it to the compound path of the heart. I like it, but I want the flames to originate on the center bottom of the heart, crawling up the outside edges of the heart. my flaming heart
Thanks for any and all help!
