mini zine - part 1

I'm so excited, I'm almost giddy.
The zines have started to arrive!
I have two so far.
I don't think I'll be able to keep up with scanning all the pages individually, and I also want to leave some mystery and surprise for the recipients, so I've scanned a random two-page spread as a teaser.

Both of these zines are from first-time-at-MMSA swappers.
Welcome to you both- I'm so glad you've jumped in!

First up, Linda's zine, titled "La Vie Boheme"


Next:  Sandra's zine, titled "my favorites of 2013, part 1, Jan-Jun"


The details of the swap, including a folding tutorial for this style of zine, can be found here.
and in case it wasn't clear (a few people have asked)
You can create your "master" zine in any style or medium you like.  It can be painting, drawing, writing, photography, collage, digital, mixed media....

When it's done, make five color photocopies (or computer printouts) of it and keep your original master for yourself.

I hope these two have inspired you and piqued your interest.  You've still got plenty of time to work on one of your own.  They don't need to be in the mail until July 29th.

  4. Please consider another mini-zine swap in January 2014...it'll motivate me to make "part 2 jul-dec". I just know people want to, no need to, know what my favorites are for the rest of the year. :)
