International Scrapbooking Day


It's International Scrapbooking Day! Yay! And what a day it is for me - I still can't believe it totally. Last night was the launch party of Everyday Storyteller 2 and today I'm  one of the guest scrappers at Shimelle's blog! Hello, Shimelle! I'm so so honoured. And on top of things, I'm keeping a workshop in Jyväskylä today, too. 

To you who came to see me via these events - hello! Or hei, if you are Finnish! I thought I'd share a few fun facts today as well as my favourite layouts done recently. Have to admit, that was actually an idea introduced by Shimelle and I really liked it.

So who am I? Not Jean Valjean from the Les Miserables, but Riikka Kovasin from Helsinki, Finland. I'm married and have two daughters who are a constant source of inspiration to me. Most of my pages are done about them or the everyday life, but recently I have started making pages about myself, too. I'm happiest when I can combine my love for the beautiful products with the possiblility to get messy with different paint media. 

It is said that my style is rich in details and textures. I love to use mixed media in my layouts and usually grab gesso jar, mists or at least inks first, when I start working. If you'd like to see how I construct my pages, please check my YouTube channel! I have "from start to finish" videos there, from which you can see how I work. You can also find my works from for example Pinterest, Two Peas and magazines like Scrap365. My blog also has a Facebook page.

Underneath is a few of my favourite recent layouts. The pictures act as links to the blog post about the layout if you wish to know more.

Thank you for looking and have a great Scrapbooking Day!

Kirjoitan useimmat postaukseni sekä englanniksi että suomeksi, mutta välillä käytän vain englantia, kuten tänään. Jos yläkuvan sivu kiinnostaa enemmän, kannattaa klikata Shimellen blogiin, josta löytyy tänään monenmoista haastetta ja ideaa!
