Color and cut it! – Riikka Kovasin

Hello there! Today it’s Riikka here sharing a couple of projects with you. This time I created two cards and a layout using the same idea – making the poppy pattern from the “Homegrown” paper into an embellishment. The cards hold the flowers cut from the 6×6 sheet and the layout has the 12×12 version.

The layout is about my younger daughter and my father’s dog. Both of my girls love animals, but whereas my older one is a bit drawn back and cautious, my younger one is more open with her love and affection. In the picture she’s hugging the young dog. Even though the picture doesn’t show the dog so well, I thought her expression was so sweet and wanted to scrapbook the shot anyway.

In both projects, the layout and the cards, I colored the flower motif with watercolors. After the first layer of the paint had dried I then added some details using watercolor pencils and then cut the pattern loose. In both projects the flowers are adhered using foam dots here and there to create an idea of depth.

The cards have the focal point cut from the “Fortune-teller” collection’s “Soul” sheet. I used the other cards from the same sheet to add layers behind the images. The base of both cards is made from a sheet of white cardstock decorating it with a stencil and a stamp to match the color palette.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you all the best,

Xoxo Riikka
