Narnia Art Journal Page

When I was about 10 years old I was completely smitten by the Chronicles of Narnia. In fact we were a whole generation of Norwegians who grew up in the late 80's/early 90's, who watched the wonderful BBC series on TV. Back in the day most of us only had one TV channel so there wasn't too much to choose between. I remember how we got up early during the Christmas and Easter holidays when the Narnia series was on.

I found a lion stamp and a lamppost die last time I was organising my craft supplies, so I had to make something with a Narnia theme. I don't seem to remember there being any foxes in the original story, but I think there was a badger. Anyway, they look cute next to each other.

I glued a sheet of thin watercolour paper into my Moleskine journal and stamped all the images. I did quite a lot of masking as well.

Then the snowflakes were stamped and embossed with white powder. I coloured the sky with Distress Ink and the images with Zig Clean Color markers.

The lamppost was diecut and I wrote the quote on black cardstock with a white ballpen. I used a yellow pigment ink pad to make some light around the lamppost.
