DT Varalusikka: Art Journaling by Riikka

Concerning beauty  Heippa! It’s Riikka here today to share an art journal spread with you. I recorded a video while I was working with the page. Usually my videos are about 5 minutes long but this time the video ended up being over 9 minutes! I guess it’s due to all the layers I built to the background.   I started the page by taping together two sheets cut to correct size. This is how I was able to make the design continue seamlessly from one sheet to the next. In a later state I then cut the sheets apart and adhered them to opposite pages of my journal, but it was easier to work first...

The book was telling about a nurse, head nurse I...

Enjoy the tiny wonders Hello there! It’s Riikka here today sharing a mixed media tag with you. While I was making it, I recorded a little video. I carried with this project like so many of mine – having an original idea what I wanted to do (a mixed media tag) and then letting the project lead me.    As you can see from the video, I start by adhering some papers to my tag base. The greyish looking paper is from the Texture Inspiration Bundle and the old book page is from an old Bible. They make up a base layer for my tag. On top I then collaged some postal stamps and tickets using clear...
