Tuesday and something slightly different from me today

Morning all

I'm a card maker .... OK, so I sometimes make ATC's and scrapbook and do the occasional art journalling but I am, primarily, a card maker. However, every so often I see something that makes me want to venture from my comfort zone ... saw a video on facebook and thought I would give it a go ...

The completed "ZINE"
My folded copier paper
One view of my folded and embellished "ZINE"
And the other way up - so you don't have to stand on your head!

  • Card (to make the covers)
  • Narrow white satin ribbon - to hold the "ZINE" closed
  • Stamps and inks from sets in the photos below
  • Derwent coloursoft pencils

The 'ZINE' looks fantastic Kathy and love all the images you have used, and the pretty flower on the front in those bright and pretty colours, and your monster ATC works well too. I love the white doodling and all the shades of blue look great. x
