House of Iron Men - Prima Marketing


Can you believe it's July already? The turn of the month also means new challenges and the reveal of the July BAP and PPP challenges in Prima blog (link). This month the sketch is by Jennifer Snyder and it's great for summer pages! This page is my very first as the team member, so exciting!


I was inspired by the watercolor style paint touches in the sketch and used watercolor pencils in my page. I used just one photo in my own page, but cut it in three parts to mimic the three photos of the sketch. There's also touches of scrip as in the sketch and some hand drawn lines as well.

The page, or the topic, itself was inspired by my father and grandfather who I both consider to be iron men of some sort. My grandfather was over 90 when he still was cutting down trees and loading them to tractor by hand. It was pure strength combined to a life time of experience at work and when I tried to help it felt that I was more in the way than helping. My father on the other hand has had health issues but he's tough, persistent and has a great view for life so I admire him very much.

So the title refers to me being of the same blood, of the same house and contains a wish that I would have the same stamina and spirit when I’m older.


I've had a few questions about how to follow my blog lately so I thought to explain it a little. There's an icon on the left sidebar that's shaped like arches, the common RSS feed kind of thing. If you click that a Feeds Burner site opens and from there you can choose the way you want to follow my blog. You can add it to your Feedly for example. From the same site you can also subscribe my blog straight to your email if you prefer to read it like that.

On the other hand if you have a Blogger account and want to read my blog through that, you can add it to your list in the Blogger's control panel by clicking the link "Add" underneath your blog feed. Just copy and paste my blog's address (paperiliitin.blogspot.com) to the correct field and you'll have it added to your list!

Please don't ever hesitate to mail me or message me on the Facebook if you have any questions!

It's a pleasure and honor that my blog gets visited! Thank you so much!
