Bloom & Grow - Paperilla

From autumn to bright summer! Yesterday I shared a canvas I created for 7 Dots Studio in a fall mood and today I share this layout I made for summer issue of Paperilla magazine. Last week I already shared the cards I made for the same issue using the same tutorial.

The Paperilla magazine is a Finnish paper crafts publication and can be found both in print and online (link). The summer number had a garden theme. I did two cards and a layout for the issue together with a tutorial. I can't share the tutorial, naturally, but can show you the pieces made with it.

This page is made about my first born, like a little wish for her. To bloom and grow and follow her heart. She's such a gentle soul and so kind! The journaling reads: "Grow and bloom, find your own path and follow it. Listen to your heart and look the world through it. Love you!"

The flower stamps are by Stampendous. I stamped some of the blooms to the background but used them as embellishments, too. I stamped then onto white cardstock, added touches of color using Gelatos and then cut the flowers off the paper. I used 3 D foam squares to adhere the flowers to the page. 

Thank you for your visit today! Have a great day everyone!

  3. Beautiful Riikka...luv the colours. How did you create the leaf background?

    1. It was a tutorial for a publication but as it's been years now, I think I can share :D I inked leaves from nature with Distress Inks, misted some water on top and then pressed the leaves to the background, like stamps. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
