Varalusikka's Favourite Printables

2019-04-12
Love
Greetings from the Paper Garden!So many of our dear customers have asked during the years, if we could sell the beautiful prints we use in our junk journals, monthly boxes, everywhere. We have often thought about it, collecting pdf printables or prints, but somehow it has never felt quite right. You see, lots of the images we use are from Pinterest. Naturally, most are from our own private collections, but there are more documents and like, not that many botanical prints etc. But the ones most beautiful are usually from Pinterest, free to use, when just dig deep enough to find them. So, we...

DT Varalusikka 2 / 2019

A short summary of Jehkotar's blogpost in English. Taru created her first altered book and used Varalusikka Paper Garden materials for it. She made also a short video about it.  Taru covered the spread with clear gesso, let it dry properly, and sprayed the pages with Tattered Angels brown Glimmer Mist spray. Then she took a baby wipe and wiped the page through a Tim Holtz stencil to get a tattered, worn out, soft pattern.The next step was layering the pages with washi tapes and papers. Taru distressed the paper edges with brown Distress Inks, and stamped some papers with stamps from...

GUEST PROJECT BY PAPERILIITIN: Dusting off time from butterfly wings

2018-11-11
Love
Bittersweet hello! It’s Riikka here again – this time with my last guest project with this batch of goodies. Like I wrote in the last post, this project and one I shared last one have similarities. Some of the mediums are the same but projects differ in others. What I also tried to show with these two last ones, was the effect of color. A composition looks totally different in black than in white. In this project I used Texture Fantasy paste set called “Old Wall”. The pastes are matt and grainy and give an impression of an old wall or concrete. The set holds three jars, which can be used...

Guest Project by Paperiliitin: Paint the Sky with Stars

2018-11-11
Love
Moikka! It’s Riikka here with second last guest project! These last two projects make a pair of some sort. They are similar in ways but yet so different in others. Both of the projects have similar mediums in use but differ in color – the other one is pale and subtle, the other one, as you can see, dark with deep colors. This project is constructed on top of an old book cover. A cover is perfect for this kind of assemblage as it’s sturdy enough to hold the weight of the embellishments and moisture of the mediums. I love to do assemblages as I can then play with different embellishments and...

Guest Project by Paperiliitin: Fairy Card

2018-10-13
Love
Syysterveiset – that means autumn greetings! How’s the weather and season in your neck of woods? It’s Riikka here with fifth guest project! This time it’s a really quick and easy one, a fairy card. The inspiration to this came from the beautiful old post card I got inside my box of goodies. I loved the card as it was, but as a crafter I naturally needed to alter it, to make something out of it. So I cut the little fairy out and gave her something else to sit on and changed the look otherwise, too.  Where as I used text from an old book in my previous project, the layout, I now used...
