An ode to triangle by Riikka Kovasin
Hello there 7 Dots Studio fans! It’s Riikka here today with two projects. I again drew the inspiration for these pieces not only from the wonderful 7 Dots Studio products but the theme of the latest challenge theme “Historical figure”.
There’s plenty of historical figures I could have used. When thinking about the theme, a problem developed – I had too many figures to choose from! My love for the Finnish band Turisas led me to Vikings, my adoration to 18th century fashion to Madame Pompadour and so forth. So I took the easy way out and asked my husband to name a historical figure. The first one he suggested was Pythagoras. Pythagoras = a^2+b^2=c^2 = triangles! And as the chipboard sheet of “Dreamscapes” is full of triangles, I had my theme. I made two projects celebrating this lovely shape and the mathematical formula of right triangle, the Pythagorean Theorem.
The first project is an art journal page celebrating the triangle. The earthy tones of the Dreamscapes turned into rusty ones in my mind and I used tea coloured watercolour, earthy inks and rust paste in my make. The background is done using several pieces of patterned papers I had in my stash. I love how the collections are so easy to mix and I love to mix different patterns in my projects.
My other project is a set of ATCs. There’s three cards, like the sides or points in a triangle. And there’s letters a, b and c, representing the letters in the theorem. The cards have a lot of the same elements as the journal page, like the rust paste.
Thank you for stopping by today! And don’t forget to participate to the challenge! Ta ta for now!
