It is the final week in the Icelandic Idol contest, the theme is patriotic. In light of the financial crises we are up against I choose a bitter sweet concept to work with. Considering that I only used basic supplies, no patterened paper, no embellies. Only plain cardstock, glue, cutting knife, ruler and mat, white and black pen and printer. The pattern on top is a traditional wool knitting pattern, and the "Home sweet home" is a traditional cross stitch pattern. The Picture is taken at our summer cabin, right across the town we live in (Our building is visible). I love the atmosphere in this photo.
The journaling is the lyrics of an Icelandic song, quite a few Icelanders would like to replace for our national anthem. You can listen to it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6kWrBJT4J0&feature=related with engilsh subtitles. (Also shows a lot of pictures from Iceland if you are interested)
