Inspired by: a monthly creative blog series by Riikka Kovasin and Marsha Valk

It’s the 10th of the month! That can only mean one thing: I’ve got a new instalment of Inspired by to share!

Inspired by is a blog series by my friend Riikka and I. We decide on a theme (and that theme can be anything from a film, a book, a painting, to an item, colour scheme or material) and then we create something with that theme or thing in mind.

We keep what we’re making a secret until reveal day on the 10th, when we show you and each other our creations.

Rörd by IKEA

We were in the mood to alter something again. It’s been a while since we transformed the Moppe and so we headed for our local IKEA’s once again. Riikka had noticed these Rörd figurines among the new collection and thought these might be cool to use!

I had pictured them larger than they actually are, so I almost didn’t find them. They are only about 3′ or 4″ high. They’re made of aluminium and surprisingly heavy!

I put them on my desk in the living room and picked them up every once in a while, thinking that a good idea would come eventually.

It didn’t. Not really.

But the black coating did remind me of a blackboard and when I received a white uni Posca marker 0.7 mm in the mail, I put one and one together!


I usually have a whole back-story to my take on the theme, but this time there really is no further rhyme or reason behind the decorations. I just had fun doodling one evening whilst watching a couple of episodes of Gilmore Girls.

The Posca went on like a dream and dried almost immediately. I only smudged it once!

I have tangled every day since Inktober started, so some of the doodles are inspired by the tangles I did in the days before.

That’s it! Nothing more, nothing less!

That means you can now hop over to Paperiliitin and see Riikka’s take! I think it’s going to be good!!!
