This is Happiness – tutorial by Riikka

Hello there! It’s Riikka sharing a video tutorial with you!

The topic of the page is my darling husband. I just love these kinds of photos, him with either or both of our girls, goofing around. As the topic of the page is happy and joyous, I wanted the colors and embellishments to bring out that feeling as well. So I chose to go with yellow, orange and red.

I started the page with monoprinting using a small Gelliplate and then continued building layers with acrylic paints and stamping. I also added both white and golden glitter splashes to the page. When adding the final touches, I also added some rhinestones to add more of that sparkle!

I did a couple of things differently this time. First of all, this video is my very first voice over one. So please tell me what you like! And also I made this video longer than my usual ones. I was asked to show more about the paper layering and embellishing process so instead of editing those out, I left them in. Hope you like it!
