DT Varalusikka: Stardust Envelopes Me by Riikka

2021-06-15
Love
Hello there! It is Riikka here with a journal project. I used several Paper Garden goodies in the making of this page. Like usually, I also recorded a video while working on the project. I started this page by collaging some pieces of paper to my journal. When I journal, I hardly ever have an idea where I am going with the project or what I want to achieve. I let the project guide me. I might have the focal point chosen when I start or then I find out even that later. It is all a really free flow process for me. This page already had some markings on it when I was cleaning my stencil from...

DT Varalusikka: Embrace Your Journey by Taru

Love
This is a journal page that was the last Jehkotar, Taru Jehkonen, made for Paper Garden before her sudden death in May. We have no words, the news were unbearably, breathtakingly hard. There are still not enough words in the world to write, but to just say that we hope and know that wherever you are, you are the one with the laudest laugh, the brightest hair, and the biggest heart. Here is the video tutorial Taru made: https://youtu.be/rnlStu9CKwg On behalf of Taru Jehkonen, Jehkotar.We will miss you forevemore.

DT Varalusikka: Spring Fairies ATCs by Riikka

2021-05-20
Love
Hi there! It’s Riikka here again with a little project and a video for you! This time I made some ATCs for spring. While writing this, the scenery outside is still somewhat snowy, but the early spring flowers like snowdrops and crocuses are starting to emerge from beneath the snow. So, I thought some spring fairies with light colors might be just the thing!  The papers I’m using in these cards are from past Paper Garden kits. But like I typed in the video, you can find similar papers from the printables. Like this “Journaling Kit” has some of the fairies I used...

DT Varalusikka: Lily of the Valley Tag by Riikka

2021-05-20
Love
Hi there! It’s Riikka here today with a quick and easy tag project. I used Paper Garden printables in this project. I started the tag by adhering some a bigger printable on top of a piece of cardboard to make a background. I then adhered the picture of the lady to a cardstock to make it sturdier. I used printables I have received from Paper Garden, which are from previous monthly kits. But as there’s now a wide selection of different printables available in the shop, you can get something similar. Besides the printables there’s not that many different elements in there. Just some postage...

DT Varalusikka: Christmas Greeting Cards by Riikka

2021-05-20
Love
Holiday greetings Hyvää joulun odotusta!It’s Riikka here today with four cards and a process video showing how I created them.  Each year I create several different Holiday cards. There’s different teams and assignments that require cards or then I just feel that they would be a good fit. I may send some of these out, but most likely is that I donate them to a charity of sorts and then we as a family make a bunch of cards with the same template to be sent out to friends and family.This year we were early and had made the whole lot before December! I’m so happy that the whole family helps,...

DT Varalusikka: Art Journaling by Riikka

2020-10-08
Love
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...
