Riikka and I "met" online when I was invited to an event in Finland a couple of years ago and she was my contact person. Since then we met several times in real at events in Helsinki, Utrecht, Paris... and she is the sweetest person!
Riikka's layouts are always full of techniques and details. Her colors go from grays and purple to bright yellows and turquoise. She adds lots of embellishments and fun little things to her work.
I love the layers in this layout (actually you will find awesome layers in all her work) and the placement of the elements leaving "white" space in the middle. I think the "I Heart Washi Tape" stamps, embossed with glitter, add beautiful texture!
On the next layout Riikka used the "French Lily Background" stamp next to the "I Heart Washi Tape" set. Love the vibrant orange and yellow and those fun wire circles!
See how beautiful the stamps look with multi colored embossing on them!
And how about this beautiful mixed media canvas?! Don't you just love the colors and the texture?
Riikka explains the technique of stamping in modeling paste on the Scrap 365 blog in a shared blog post with Marsha where you will also find a little "how to" video from her hand.
Talking about video's... Riikka has her own You Tube Channel: Paperiliitin. Check it out, you'll find 30 something inspirational video's there!!
In this last layout Riikka created her own background paper by simply stamping the "Layered Strips" over and over in different colors. I love how she stamped the "I Heart Washi Tape" on colored paper and then cut them out to incorporate them in her paper layers underneath the photo! Note the fun "water drops" she created with crackle medium!
You can also find her on Facebook and on Instagram: Paperiliitin
