Creating Keepsakes Mixed Media Blog Hop


Tämän päivän postaus vain englanniksi, huomenna jälleen kahdella kielellä. Osallistu silti toki lehden arvontaan kommentoimalla! 

Hello and welcome to my blog! If you arrived from Mou Saha you're on the right track, because it's Creating Keepsakes Mixed Media blog hop! You next stop is Cindy Tobey. If you get lost, you can find the launch post here at Creating Keepsakes blog.

Let me introduce myself - I'm Riikka Kovasin, a Finnish mixed media style scrapbooker with passion to get my hands inked and misted every day. I live in Helsinki, capital of Finland, with my encouraging husband and our two darling girls. I currently design for two magazines and a scrapbooking challenge. You can find more about my assignments here, in my resume.

For some time ago I got a happy mail from Creating Keepsakes asking if I would like to do something for a Mixed Media issue. Of course I was immediately in! My subject for the issue was colors or colorants. I'm a mist lover so I chose to show a fun technique using mists and alcohol inks. There's a tutorial on that marble style background in the magazine.


Guess what? I have one copy of the magazine to give away! Leave me a comment here by September 27th 1 pm GMT and you could be randomly chosen to win a copy of Mixed Media, vol. 2! International winners, you’ll be given a download for a PDF version of the magazine. 

My double page is about my husband. I took the photos while he was hanging the decorations for our girl's birthday party. I love to use mixed media in my layouts and usually go for the background. For this spread I created the other one with a misted background and the other page only has stamping and doodling behind the paper layers. The created marble looking paper is used in those layers behind the photo and small triangles.

If you wish to see more of my work, I'd be delighted if you joined in as a reader. You can copy the rss feed link from the sidebar or just copy+paste the blog address to your reader. You can also follow me via Facebook or Twitter. Or if you are intrigued by color, maybe you could find inspiration from my Pinterest boards?

Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a lovely day and good luck with the raffle! Hop on to Cindy Tobey!

  17. Scrapbooking is the practice of combining photos, memorabilia and stories in a scrapbook style album. Scrapbooking has been around as long as there have been photos, but the scrapbooking that has evolved in the 90's is new and different. As we learn more about color photographs, we are better able to store them in a manner that will preserve them.
