Dark Love...part 5

Spread #5 of my Octagonal Journal

I draw my images in permanent ink fine liner, then add colour quite roughly with water soluble pencils
The red eyes are permanent ink too....

Then I blend using Tim Holtz distress inks(applied with shaving brushes and sponges). TH inks are water based so activate the pencils :D

...and now the verse...

"His dark desire he's holding back.
His pain beyond compare,
As his muscles start to twitch.
Yet must he stand and stare."

Enjoy :D XXX


  1. Am loving your dark desire book ;)
