What a wonderful mommy I am – Riikka Kovasin

I’m pretty sure that in a few years my darling daughters will cherish these layouts so much – not. But as they both depict something that is such an essential part of them I just wanted to document these photos.

The first page is about my older daughter. As the journaling starts – how do you know that she’s completely asleep? The answer is that her head is tilted back and if she happens to have a cap on, it’s over her eyes.

The photo is taken in car but the same position applies also to her own bed. Ever since she was a baby, she’s had this habit to tilt her head back when sleeping.


The second page is about my younger one who’s such a goofball. She’s almost constantly performing and is the family clown in a way. I love her attitude towards life and the joy she has.

I used the “Yuletide” collection in the pages as I fell in love with the bright, happy red it has! In the first one the stripes mimic the shirt my girl has in the photo and in the second the fiery red depicts the personality of my younger one.



I used some Mica in the backgrounds and added gesso on top to make a dimensional pattern.
