Air Mail tags by Riikka Kovasin


Hello! It’s Riikka here today to share a couple of tags I made. For these two I drew inspiration from the Airmail collection, but as usual, mixed in several others.

Picture this in the limelight by Riikka Kovasin


Hello again! It’s Riikka Kovasin here today sharing a layout this time. I was inspired by stripes for this layout and decided to use watercolor and a big flat brush to create some to my page.

Sparkling layout by Riikka Kovasin

Or rather, I wanted to document the moment and chose to do it with a bit similar layers and embellishments as I used in the palette.
