Hello my friends – today we have some exciting news: we have a new Creative Squad member! Riikka Kovasin is joining our team of talented artists and we are so happy to welcome her to the group.
You may know Riikka from her lesson on Creative JumpStart this year (and in past years), and also her recent Guest Posts here on the blog like her Henrietta Maria Art Journal Page and her Shrink Film Earrings:
Also her lovely Sunny Home Card post too:
Well now we are honored to call her a member of the Creative Squad and see some more of her creativity in action.
Here is a little bit about Riikka: “Heippa! My name is Riikka Kovasin and I am a mixed media crafter from Finland. I live in Helsinki with my darling husband and our two sweet daughters. Creating is my passion and a way of self-care. Besides family and crafts, my weeks are filled with a full-time job.
I have been doing all sorts of crafts my whole life. I really got into papercrafts after I found scrapbooking when my older daughter was about 6 months old – that’s over 10 years ago. Since then my style has evolved to more and more mixed media direction and nowadays, I tend to go dimensional and do more altered and mixed media pieces than regular layouts.
I absolutely adore getting my hands into paints and mediums! To me the process of creating is equally important than the finished project.”
