Rosemaling - love it !!!
This is one instance where the pleasure I get while reading a book just doubled...!!!!...(imagine that...)
I was reading a book about a Norwegian girl lost at sea and her life afterwards...she thanks the people who rescue her and give her refuge by decorating a wooden box, decorating music sheets and painting decorative hair combs in the Rosemaling style..
So I searched the internet and found a great site with all things imaginable,decorated in this style...
And given here is my attempt at Rosemailing...I have not decided whether I should make it a wall hanging or make a pillow cushion out of it.....I just know that it is a highly addictive way to paint.
I would really love to get some comments/suggestions on this one....In case anyone is wondering, I used acrylic paint...
