The world is going faster and faster... iphones, ipads, ipods, tablets, mobiles...
How many of you still take time to read an actual paper book with your kids?
Were you intrigued by the title of today's post? :)
This word means "Bookworms" in Finnish and that's all because Riikka decided to show us her beautiful and truly touching layout celebrating a very special ritual passed on from generation to generation... :)
I attended a workshop earlier this year and we were asked to go through some old photos before that. As I was flipping through the albums, I chose some photos to be scanned and made duplicates from them.
This particular picture is me in my mom's lap, listening to a story. The journaling of the page is how we, me and my husband, try to keep the tradition alive by reading daily to our daughters.
As you may have noticed, I used a lot of different mediums in my layouts - different stencils, acrylic paints, gesso, mists, stamps, stamping inks and Gelatos.
As most of the supplies are added on top of each other and there may only be a touch here and there I made a picture showing were some of the supplies are. Like for example the Gelatos to give a touch of color to the circles drawn through a stencil with a pencil.
What also makes this page special is that this is the first one I used the awesome stencils Kasia has designed! I love how fresh, modern and contemporary their designs are!
