Pinkfresh Studio, on the other hand, will have a $50 gift card as the prize for one lucky one.

Or you can navigate with the list underneath here. Please be sure to check all the blogs for a great array of styles and ideas! Happy hopping!

Riikka Kovasin - you are here!


I'm a mixed media crafter and love to explore with my supplies. What I did for the hop are two bookmarks. And not just any bookmarks, they are done out of tea bags! Did you spot that right away or now needed to check again? 

I used some acrylic paints in the make, but then added stamping using a wonderful stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio called "Tealightful Day". After that I coated the bags with embossing powder and used some to make the white speckles, too. If you are interested in just how the bookmarks were made, I have a tutorial coming up for those in a couple of months at Mixed Up - an online platform for all things mixed media. Here's a link if you want to check them out (link)


As you all can't be winners of the giveaway in the hop (sorry!), I thought to add this info here. If you fall in love with the embossing powders and glitters you see along the hop, you can get them with 10% off by using the code WOWDTRK! That's something to keep in mind! 

But now, without further ado, hop over to your next stop which is Yoonsun Hur! Once again, thank you for stopping by and happy hopping! Have a 'tealightful' day!

  4. I love hot tea and I did have to look again because I missed the fact that they were tea bags. You mixed media artists are clever. I just don't have it.

    Your book marks are fantastic. I'd find it hard to give them away. The colors are lovely. [Bunny]
