Monthly projects by Rikka Kovasin

Hello, it’s Riikka here today to share a couple of new projects with you! I hope your holidays were great and that the year changed smoothly!
For my first project I created a layout using the Yuletide collection but went with non-Christmas topic. As it happens, the white and red go well to a drink also, the Coca-Cola.

I can still remember when my girls got to taste the drink for the first time – the other one liked it and other hated. She thought the soda was too sour and she didn’t like the bubbles either. So when we were on a holiday in the summer and they wanted to have a glass of the stuff, I happened to have my camera ready and took this picture. It perfectly captures her attitude towards the drink!

I started by adding pieces of patterned paper to the 12×12 sheet. As you may see I used the same design in two sizes, in 12×12 and 6×6. On top I then layered media with two different stencils and then added the photo and the layers on top. For embellishments I used some stickers and diecuts.
