Dark Love...

This is the first spread in my Octagonal Journal.
I decided to paint the inside covers with Rose Madder acrylic...
and rather than draw straight onto the book, I gathered some torn out desk diary pages to work on.
Drawn in pen, then seriously distressed with pencils and TH distress ink pads.
He is leaning on a tree, so that lead me to think he may have been carving a heart, which in turn lead me to "tangle" a heart...
Tangled emotions...
swirls representing Cupids Bow...
Close up of obsessed lover...
close up of tangled heart.
This page isn't finished yet, but I wanted to share the build up :D
I am linking him to Ayala Art's June Guys challenge


  1. Wonderful ...! I like the design of this beautiful heart.

  2. Fabulous! The tangled heart is beautiful and I love the "mean and moody" look of your man.
    Hugs xx

  3. What a fabulous start, love it.
    hugs {brenda} xox

  4. This looks awesome! So moody and dark!

  5. Gina, I know I always say this, but I love your art! I love your mind! I love your imagination!

  6. I think he is great, very manly and rugged looking. Can hardly wait to see the finished page. Love the tangled heart too. I always run out of patience.

  7. Oh Gina I love the size of your new octagonal journal ;) so cool! And your first spread: totally awsome! Love the heart and the hand ♥
