and welcome to my design team work.
I am Heike from Heike`s AugenBlick and I am your host for today.
I hope you had a beautiful Christmas time with lots of lovely memories.
Our Christmas time was quiet, Jörgen my handsome hubby had to work in the hospital.
So we only had the Christmas Eve lunch with three of our four kids.
I enjoyed the time we had together. It is so sad that the time for Christmas music is also over.
I love Christmas music and one of my favorite songs is:
"Walking in the air"
"Walking in the air" is a song from Howard Blake created for the 1982 animated UK Christmas special "The Snowman" based on the book by Raymond Briggs. The song was sung by choirboy Peter Auty.
The song has become a kind of Christmas standard in the United Kingdom,
as the animated special has become prominent in British culture airing annually similar to
"A Charlie Brown Christmas" in the US.
Here is a short lyric from the song.
Walking in the air
We `re walking in the air.
We`re flooting in the moonlit sky.
The pepole far below
Are sleeping as we fly
I`m holding very tight
I`m finding I can fly
So high above with you....
Here is a link to the song:
But any way:
I created for you an altered mixed media project, more precisely
a wooden painter`s palette.
A closer look:
My focal point photo is with clear embossing powder covered. I also used the little palette opening as frame for another photo which I covered with clear embossing powder also.
A short description about my background steps:
I started on my wooden painter`s palette with a layer of black gesso. After my black gesso was dry
I cut a paper-sheet from the sunrise paper collection and I glued this
to my wooden palette with gel medium.
I protected my paper with a layer of clear gesso.
After that I cut a piece of the travel the world transparency folie and I glued this with gel medium on my wooden palette.
After that I have added lots of texture with multipurpose medium, crackle glaze,
modeling paste and a stencil, powertex balls and 3D powders. I let the hole thing dry overnight.
My photo image shows the wet texture on my wooden palette.
My color choice for this project was quite dark and vintage looking.
That means Color Glow powders in dark blue and brown with gold and bras should
be the main colors on my wooden painter`s paltette.
I used from 13@rts:
Paper sheet -In-the-wind-SUNRISE
ALLOY-silver alcohol ink
I hope I was able enough to inspire you to create with the beautiful products of 13@rts.
There is a Facebook pagina for 13@rts friends to showcase there projects.

Have a beautiful day.
