This graphic production was a bit of a disappointment. The plates are nice but not authentic Scandinavian designs. The floral motifs are similar in nature to those used in painting, however there are none of the historical classic details seen in Scandinavian folkart.

I ordered this book after seeing it on "Quilt Out Loud" it was just what I've been searching for. This book is delivers in size and price, simple designs of Scandinavian folk art that are easy to use in so many applications.

This book gives ideas for creating very attractive Scandinavian folk drawing. I am a frustrated rosemaler and before I trashed my pallet, I tried this book. Scandinavian folk art uses many floral designs, and the book has pictures that are easy to draw, and it gives ideas to create your own. Many of the designs are similar to rosemaling, so you can enter the wonderful world of rosemaling through the back door! (You can down two birds with one stone!) It is particular fun to use this book with a book on fraktur and Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs. The possibilities are endless!

Author Lis Bartholm updated traditional Scandinavian designs to create motifs you can use to paint with. You will find a good selection of motifs ranging from flowers to folk art designs. Some of my favorite designs are:

Sunflowers found on page 14
Floral designs found on page 23
Roses on page 4

Recommend.
