About The Zines Swap...

By now I hope potential participants have 
figured out the construction process.  
Once you make a zine, it gets easier to do again.

At first I couldn't decide on a theme for my zines, 
but as my attention wandered I noticed 
the two kitchen trash bags 
filled with scraps and snippets and 
images from magazines which have been 
sitting on the art room/craft room floor 
for many, many months. 
I'm embarrassed to admit that.

What I eventually chose to do 
was to mostly limit my zine designs 
to using bits and scraps that had 
been accumulating.  To begin with, 
I selected Gelli Plate prints 
from my rather large stack to use 
as backgrounds for these little booklets.  
The zines I've been putting together have 
turned out to be loosely color-themed:   
I have been collaging words or images to match 
or coordinate with my booklet backgrounds.
This is just one of many ways
to create a zine.

I hope everyone in this group swap
 has found inspiration to make something 
interesting, delightful or entertaining 
to share with the rest of us.  
Two participants besides myself 
have already sent in their art.  I can tell 
that this will be another wonderful 
group swap.  :)
