Ilo - Mixed Media Place

Joyous Tuesday! This month we have a way with words over at Mixed Media Place (link)! The new challenge over there is "One Important Word". So have you got a special or favorite word? Something that empowers you or something that always makes you smile? A word that only you and a loved one knows? You can create any project - a card, a layout, a canvas or something totally different. We hope that you'll play along!

I had an amazing opportunity to take a workshop with two amazing teachers – Nathalie Kalbach and Birgit Koopsen here in Finland. That workshop really made me a color addict! So when I was thinking about the challenge piece, I wanted to create something with the teachings in mind. 

The word got me really thinking. There’s plenty of important words like love, caring, cherish and such. But the first thing I decided that the word needed to be in my mother tongue – Finnish. It was hard to choose but actually the playing with colors helped and I chose to go with “ilo” which means joy. 

To me that refers not just to the joys of my life (like my family) and to the joy of creating but the overall attitude towards life and happenings.

Now it's your time to think about your important word and play along! Thank you for stopping by today! Joyous evening!
