Moikka! My name is Riikka Kovasin and I’m 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’ve been doing all sorts of crafts my whole life. I started with cards and general crafts, then got into painting and printmaking, then to sewing and knits. I’m a clothes designer by education but haven’t done exactly that job for a moment in my 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 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.If you’d like to see more of my work, I’d be honored for you to visit my blog or other social media sites. And if you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email! The address is in my blog – I would love to hear from you!
