Jalapeno – a layout with a video by Riikka Kovasin


Hello there! It’s Riikka here today to share a process video with you! It shows me creating this layout I titled “Jalapeno”.

The story behind the page is our younger daughter, who is eager to try new things. Well, occasionally anyway. But this time she really wanted to taste a jalapeno. We told her that it’s going to be hot and has a really strong taste, but if you want, then just go ahead! And she bit a piece of the chili and first seconds were ok and then the burn started. You know how it is! Luckily we had milk already poured for her! Because of the burning chili, I added the sticker “she lived” to the layout. As all ended well!

I started the layout by sewing four tags to the background. Then I started adding different mediums on top and lastly added the embellishments in. Find out which mediums I used by watching the video!

Thank you for your time! I hope I have inspired you!
