Hi Folks. Been busy decorating so access to my craft space and laptop has been restricted. Anyway I'm sharing my art journal page for this month's ART JOURNAL JOURNEY theme of 'Maps'.
I've always enjoyed reading and for my 8th birthday my parents bought me the complete 'Chronicles of Narnia' - all seven books in a lovely, illustrated, hard cardboard case. I've still got them in fact.
When I first saw this theme I was only thinking of maps of the world and countries but then I glanced up at the bookshelf and saw my set of Narnia books and immediately knew what my page would be about.
So here it is - my map of Narnia.
I started by randomly painting the page with teal and cream chalk paint, then attaching the scanned map with Mod Podge. You can tell the book is old because the pages have yellowed so much, the scan picked up the colour
When the Mod Podge was dry I used Gesso to cover a small section ready for the stamp which is from Doo Lally Pip, stamped with StazOn black ink.
I used modelling paste and a Tim Holtz Faded Dots stencil to add some texture and finished off with some doodling, handwriting and a magazine word.
So there you are and now I'm off to tidy the wardrobe!
