The layout is about one of my favourite summer dishes, “kesäkeitto”, which is a milk based vegetable soup. In my family's version there's potatoes, cauliflower, peas and carrots in it. My husband and the girls aren't too keen on the soup, but every summer I make the soup once as it's my delicacy.
To create that background, I first spread a thin coat of gesso all over the paper. Then I took and stamped a few flowers to the background and used PanPastels to color them.
