September = Zines!
Here again for this month is my latest mini-zine! It is themed for a Tudor style and content book of hours. This lovely little treasure has verses and poetry from Queen Elizabeth I, Tudor period nursery rhymes/poetry and even some political poetry/commentary of the day!
I started out like the other zine with staining the paper with Walnut Inks, and using Glimmer Mist in Olive Vine around the edges of the paper. I used stickers, tissue tape, die-cuts, and stamped images in various inks for the background. I then printed out my verse on tea-stained paper and glued them as you see.
This is a 6 page zine made from an 8in x 11.5 in sheet of paper which I then had photo copied onto a nice weight of color printer paper and folded.
I made this mini-zine for the group The Tudor Exchange on Swap-bot. If you are interested there is still time to sign up should you like to join the group and have a love for all thing Tudor just send me a request!
Well, time to go for now there will be many more new posts coming soon as I have lots of crafts to make today and all this week! Until then happy crafting and swapping to you all!
