This altered art is to accompany my poem Heart of Fire

This time I wanted the heart to have the fluid, ethereal and violent nature of fire.

I’ve used my own textures and stock together with:

Got to Get Out’s Scratch textures

Enframed’s Concrete texture

Wu-KillahD’s Smoke texture

Shin-Rhys’ Fire textures

Neb8stock’s Some Old Rock stockimage

Khaos Dog’s Blood Spatter textures

Buzillo’s Grunge textures

and – as always -

Sirius-SDZ’s fabulous textures

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
