Mixed Media Layout by Heike`s AugenBlick

Hello everyone,

Heike here from Heike`s AugenBlick and I have today the pleasure to inspire you to work with the wonderful products of 13@rts.


The summer has arrived here in The Netherlands with days around 25 degrees Celsius. 
Wonderful to sit in the garden and enjoy the nature. 
I got a beautiful hammock with wooden stand from my handsome hubby. 
Now I have to be careful that I don't just lie in the hammock and read. 
Living is so beautiful if you know how to enjoy it. But anyway..

"FAVORITE"...
is my Steampunk inspired mixed media layout with a photo of my son Joshua.


A closer look.




Background steps on my page:
I started my mixed media layout on two sheets of paper called: Rosefield and the clock.
My first step was adding two layers of clear gesso. After everything was dry very well, I added a layer of a mix from acrylic medium, color glow topaz and rainbow color navy blue to my background.
The left over mix was for the chipboard decoration and for splatters. I decided to play along with the stencil dance of gears and a mix of multipurpose gel and color glow calcite. I dryed my background over night. The next day I started with painting around the gears with orange rainbow color and vivid orange. After the color was dry I added gold glitter to the gears and also to the blue colored chipboards. My last step on my background was adding black gesso with texture powder.
Now it was time for my focal point.
