Blue and pink by Riikka Kovasin

Hi there! Today it’s Riikka here to share two layouts with you! The other is in blue shades and the other pinks.
The first one is an inspiration piece to myself. It’s kind of a reminder to take chances and reach for the top. I found perfect elements for the page in many collections but chose to go with the Verano Azul one with the background. The blue sky and the steadily forward going, soaring plane seemed appropriate for the layout so I also chose to go with my favorite color scheme.

I started the page with some mist and ink and then carried on to stamping and Modeling paste. On top I then layered some papers and stickers and made sure that the piece from the 6×6 Verano Azul pad I had cut was showing. “Sky is the limit”.

The other page is about the moment I met Linda. I was teaching in Egersund and the flights were to Stavanger. She drove to the airport when I was heading home just to see me! She’s an amazing artist and so warm, kind and fun! And such a dear! It was such a pleasure to see her in person! So this page celebrates her.

I started also this page with some mist and then added stamping on top. I also created the deer head pattern to the page first with mist and then traced along the edge to really get the pattern showing. There’s a few pen swirls and also swirls of wire thread.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a pleasant December and heart-warming Christmas time!
