While researching Denmark I found out a few interesting facts about the country. First of all, did you know Denmark is "The HAPPINESS Country in the WORLD"? Secondly it was once known as a "Land of Many colors" - Thirdly Denmark is home to Legoland, Tivoli park ( reminds me of the modern day amusement park with lots of famous artwork mixed in )-Denmark has the world's biggest population of cyclist and of course they eat many strange foods such as smoked Eels (yuck!) I mostly thought of Denmark being cold , land of vikings , dragons, mermaids and the place where Hans Christian Anderson wrote about. Boy was I wrong -it really is a beautiful and colorful country. So with that in mind I wanted to make a colorful card and page.
FRONT OF CARD
This card is based on a travel ad from the 1930's -
How much more colorful could a sunset be than this?
Done in copic markers
BACK OF CARD
My Dear Alexander,
So I hope while you were on your "Mission"you received my cards?
Am I correct in who Ruben was?
Because I'm still having visions of dark rooms and I'm not sure if this is my answer.
Anyways I stopped in Denmark (Copenhagen is so colorful and friendly!),
to check on purchasing sheep for my farm (no luck)-
Are you heading close to my home soon?
I miss you and long to have a deep conversation with you !
Until we meet soon,
PAGE IN BOOK
Lots of color here - First of all the sky, pier,
water and ships were done in water colors.
It is Nyhavn Pier in the Copenhagen region.
(very unique and colorful entry to a town).
Many of these buildings are restaurants & cafes.
Most photos I found of this area was crowded
with lots of people strolling Hand-in-hand
(remember Happiest country). The buildings were
done in Prismacolor colored pencils. The title
of the page is in tribute to Legoland- I found a
Lego font and spelled out Denmark.
For good luck I added the flag of Denmark too.
WELL SORRY For the technical issues this week -
Also Thanks to everyone for all the positive
support these last 32 weeks-
Can't wait to view all the cards
from this week!
Happy Creating !
