Leaves of Gold – Layout and Card by Riikka

August 6, 2017

 

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!

This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!

Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!

Dreamers and dreams with Riikka

 

Hello there! How are you today? Doing fine, I hope! Today it’s Riikka here with a couple of guest projects. For these two I took inspiration from the Arrows and Dreamcatcher dies for a Native American feel. My first project is a layout, the second is a card.

The photo was taken a couple of years ago when I was on a local train, heading off to demo at a craft fair. If I recall correctly, it was my first time to demo at this event. Nowadays, I’m fortunate enough to demo there on regular basis. The warm tones of the photo and the gaze to the future fitted my page perfectly, so I did a layout that is about dreams and how to keep dreaming and reaching for one’s goals.
