Mixed Media Layout by Heike`s AugenBlick

November 4, 2018

Hello everyone,

and welcome on the blog from APG!!

Our November mood board with the colors pink, bordeaux and green


and the gorgeous theme "finishing touch" or " never ending story"


inspired me to create a layout in mixed media style.


But first my description over finishing touch.


Did you know...


that at the  official exhibitions in the nineteenth century the artists would give a finishing touch to their  art works by varnishing them in the company from invited guest, buyers and sponsors.


This was always a day before the official vernissage opens.


But also in the current time you can see that the finishing touch is applied...


I,  for example, have my own way to give my artwork  my so-called final touch.


And that is: I put my artwork on an easel. Then I step back and sit on my favorite armchair,


with a view at the easel. In this way I try to find out where I still have something to add.


For example: splatters, glitter, color or stamp-images...



I used for this layout:

white and black Cardstock,

Finnabair black gesso, art stones, glitter, glas-glitter, glas-beads,

Lindy`s spray,

wire, laces, sisal,

Prima mold embellishments, pearls,

A Cabella stamps,

De stempelwinkel NL,

7 Dots Studio stickers,

Ecoline Nr.100

Coosa crafts gilding wax,

Posca pen black and white,

Photo Nature Magazine.


Maybe I could inspire you with my technique or with my layout.


I would be very happy.


I see you on the blog from Art Playground.


Until then.
