Thinking out loud! + edit.


Yes, I was thinking out loud! And I now deleted the whole post. It was about what I am going to post to this blog. After all  I am going to keep this blog pretty much as it is, except all the "business" stuff  I am going to post to an other "blog" at my website.  So if you are interested about events, sales and promotions of my digital supplies and prints, take a peek to:

News and Memories blog

Ja sitten vielä suomeksi, eli deletoin tästä lähes kaiken ääneen ajattelemani. Eli tämä blogi jatkuu kuten ennenkin, yhtä sekavana. Paitsi, että kaikki bisnes asiat löytyy nyt uudelta blogilta nettisivujeni yhteydestä. Linkki yllä.

"Detour" Digital Collage by Kirsi itKuPiLLi Rouvinen 2018

I was trying to make a sample page using my latest release ~ "Detour". But  I ended up to use only 3 elements from that - 2 group of ladies and sky border. 

The other stuff is from the older kits.  And actually there is only one background and 4 other elements from the other kits. And no effect or any other tricks, except I used PerfectEffects 9 HDR Look filter to add the final touch. 

Simple as that.

Go with the "fLow"

"fLow" Digital Collage by Kirsi itKuPiLLi Rouvinen 2018

Last night I was just going to shut down the computer and go to bed. But I just wanted to try one little thing. And then one thing led to the other. I haven't experienced such a flow to create for long time. Well, I do love to create the kits and collage sheets, but I have felt too busy to create something just for fun. But last night I had so much fun by letting the created juices run wild.

When I woke up in the morning I still liked what I had created (that does not happen always). So I just added some finishing touches and the new collage was finished.

I used several kits from itKuPiLLi Imagenarium @Mischief Circus to create this.


I just wanted to add a photo from my Redbubble store, to show how the collage looks as a pile of pillows.

Monthly Mischief - March 2018 with Pantone Spring

"No regrets" Digital Collage by Kirsi "itKuPiLLi" Rouvinen 2018

In Mischief Circus we love to play. And it's not that much fun to play alone. So that's why we start every month by playing together. 

We pick every month a new exciting color palette to play with. March 2018 color palette is Pantone Spring 2018 palette.

I just adore this vivid palette. My most favorites are Little Boy Blue, Spring Crocus and Lime Punch. This palette was screaming VINTAGE! 40's 50's 60's advertising!

So here are my 3 packs:
itKuPiLLi Imagenarium Monthly Mischief March 2018 Elements

itKuPiLLi Imagenarium Monthly Mischief March 2018 Scraps

itKuPiLLi Imagenarium Monthly Mischief March 2018 Papers

And the funny thing is, that we have the same palette, but each designers see the colors differently. So we get a really intriguing mixture of different styles and color combinations. And then it's so much fun to mash up the packs.

You can find all the Monthly Mischief March 2018 packs from each designers here. Pick you own favorites or get them all!!!

Here is one more collage by me, created together with itKuPiLLi Imagenarium and Holliewood Studios

Oh, and one thing, if you create art with Mischief Circus kits, I would love to invite you to share them in Mischief Circus facebook group. Or if you use itKuPiLLi Imagenarium stuff, please join also the itKuPiLLi Imagenarium group, and post your creations there.

It's more fun to play together!

At least a nice try!

"Sometimes" Digital Collage by Kirsi itKuPiLLi Rouvinen 2018.
I've so neglected this blog. I almost feel sick every time I remember my blog. I so miss the times, when I was eager and excited of it.

I used to have so many blogs, way too many. And I thought if I concentrate on just one blog, that would be easier. I had one blog for my "job", one for inspiration and many others. But actually, when I gave up the other blogs, the absolutely opposite happened. I've been too confused to post almost anything at all.

And I have also an other reason, why I haven't blog that much. That is my bad English. I've lived 10 years no in California, so you could think, that that would be enough time to learn the language, but I just haven't. I still feel it quite difficult to write in English.

But anyways, despite my confusion and the language barrier I am going to give a try to this poor blog, at least a nice try. :)

"Stop" Digital Collage by Kirsi itKuPiLLi Rouvinen 2018.

The collages has been created with the Mischief Circus's Monthly Mischief February 2018. I've used images from Holliewood Studios and itKuPiLLi Imagenarium. All can be found here.

PS. This is for my Finnish readers. Vaikka pidän tätä blogia nyt enimmäkseen englanniksi, niin suomenkieliset, kommentoikaa toki suomeksi, ymmärrän ja osaan vastata paljon helpommin niihin. :)
