Human heart Part 1

Welcome friends!

today  a new art journal spread. I had planned for a long time
to make a site for my personal and original art book.
 It's  one of my favourite songs - Human heart - Menschenherz - from Unheilig.

Anything but cute - #10 grungy love

Emerald creek - Valentine is not in the air
my inspiration: Valentine without romantic style

I love the grungy, industrial style in T!m's projects and the creative techniques with
his wonderful distress inks
nothing goes without   :-)
