double page, Oslo


Today I made a double page for European capital cities book. Background Norwegian book pages, glazed with two layers acrylic paint and a thin layer gesso. I also stamped some leaves. There is the Royal palace, Edvard Munch paintings, two of the 192 sculptures from Gustav Vigeland in the Frogner park. The picture on the right bottom is a fragment of the gate of that park, also from Vigeland.

It was hard to make a choice, there is so much to see in Oslo. I would have a old viking ship there or the town hall but the shape didn't fit with the other items.
I don't know why it looks so yellow on the screen, but the pages are more green in reality.

This double page spread is absolutely brilliant - I love it!

You are so good at journalling - it's addictive isn't it.
