Hello there everyone! It’s Riikka here today sharing a process video with you! There’s no special technique involved in this layout although there’s different mediums and materials in use. My goal was to show you a fun composition and using a simple tool to add a lot of detail to a page – a stapler. You also get to see basic process when I create a layout.
The page is about a lovely surprise I got in the mail some time ago. When I was attending a Turisas show a couple of years ago, one of the bands performing before them was Thaurorod. I didn’t know the band before but enjoyed the energy the singer radiated to the crowd and took a couple of pictures. I then tweeted them and long story short, a year after I met the singer and spent a day in Stockholm with him. Now that they are about to release their new album they had a competition connected to one of the songs and as it happens, I won. So I got two of their guitar picks and plan to make a piece of jewelry out of them!
I started the layout with some mixed media, creating a background for the piece. For that I used gesso, watercolors, a pencil and some stamping. Then on top I created the detailed and fun layer using text stickers, die cuts and a stapler. Hope you enjoy!
