Art Journal Zine Giveaway

The past month, I've been busy finishing an art journal zine for a swap with my Guemes Island retreat friends. I made a couple extra copies and want to give one away to my blog readers. Comment on this post and I'll put your name in a hat and draw a winner next a week. The big announcement will be November 12th. Good luck!

I've always wanted to create a zine. When I tell people about it, they ask "What is a zine?"

Wikipedia defines a zine this way- "A zine (an abbreviation of the word fanzine, or magazine; "zeen") is most commonly a small circulation publication of original or appropriated texts and images." I call it a self-published, mini-magazine.

Alma Stoller sponsors an annual zine exchange. iHanna has a great post about zines on her blog. Art zine themes vary from fiber arts to painting to collage. Our group chose art journaling for our zine theme.

This zine includes art journal techniques that I enjoy plus a bag of goodies to use in your journal.
This next week, I'll be working on our upcoming Portland Art Collective Sale and Show. Stay tuned for photos of what I'm creating and selling in December.
