Jeg liker ikke å snakke - This is my Norwegian kind of art :-)

Hi, it's me again :-)
I promise you yesterday that the next thing i will show you is My newest art on canvas. And here it is :)
Jeg liker ikke å snakke;
da tror jeg ikke meg selv.
Men blomstene her vil takke
Suddenly I realized that I could also take this  peace of art to the Challenge at What a brilliant idè ; ) So her I go again. I think I'm addicted....
This applies to participate in the contest:
For May, the colours are bright summery shades of purple, hot pink and sunshine yellow

In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEMEFLOWERS

Here is the link to the May-Colour-Challenge:

I hope I will win and that I can recive some of the amazing rubber stamps from Rubber Dance Art as prize. They are all gorgeous, but I did find some favorites. That I can talk about another time. Now lets concentrate on my art on canvas.

I did my art on canvas 20 * 20 cm. this time. For the backround i used tissuepaper from Tim Holtz: Idea-ology - melange. I glue this on with mixed media matt. Let it all dry over night, and then I paint over with gesso mixed with water. Let it dry.

Then I came in with acrylic paint with the fab. coulor Pastel Pink, Pastel blue and Pastel Violet. I painted with babywipes so the colour just melted beautiful together. Then i colored the Big Butterfly with Faber Castell Gelatos in tree different pink coulor.

Then I stamped the background with the background collection from Dylusions called Basic Backgrounds.

I Stamped the flowers who is from Tim Holtz collections called Flowegarden and cut them out. I colored the flowers with Distress Ink in shades of purple, hot pink and sunshine yellow ;) Then I stamped the leaves direct on the canvas (this is from Dylusions collection called Around the Edge), and colored the leaves with Gelatos in two different green colour.

The Verse I have taken from a famous Norwegian writer and Lyricer called Arnulf Øverland. He was born in Kristiandsund in 1889, and died in Oslo in 1968.

I written the Verse into a bit of a design sheet, cut it out and glue it onto the canvas and then doodle a "sew edge" around it. I thougt the Verse is beautiful. In english it goes something like this: "I don't like to talk. When I do I do not believe myself, but the flowers here will thank anyway!"
I think the Verse sounds better in Norwegian....  :)

I do hope that I remember it all, but if I don't please do not hesitate to ask if you have any question, okidoki?

In closing I will just show you my mixed medium art collage in my Art Journal that  I received tremendous positive response on Facebook and Instagram. I am very proud of this one : ) What do you think? Did you like it?

I'l be back! In the meantime please write me a comment, just so I know you are out there and watching my art, and hopefully get inspired to do art yourself.

Hugs from Niti : )
