Vanessa creates and sells handmade journals and notebooks in her shop, so she made the base of this zine. She created her pages, passed it along to Julia to add her touch and then I got the last few pages to have fun with!
Isn’t the cover so lovely?
I’ve actually been traveling all Summer, so I didn’t even have many art supplies with me when making this, but I just couldn’t say no.
So what I used on all of these pages are some Micron pens (my fave!), some cheap watercolors, and a little black and white acrylic paint.
Here’s my pages, I’m so happy with how they turned out.
For the page above, I painted the galaxy scene with watercolors and then added the song lyrics (by Owl City) on top.
For the next double spread page (above) I wanted a way to feature all of the quotes about space that I just love and find so inspiring, and with all of the news about the New Horizons probe and new images of Pluto, I decided to paint some planets. That middle planet is my best pluto.
Now if you have 2 seconds, please hop over to both Vanessa and Julia’s blogs to see their pages in this zine. Once completed we sent the zine to Caylee as a surprise. Caylee is one of the founders of Get Messy Art Journal, and we felt she should have this.
I loved doing this! We’re actually planning something else for the future as well! 🙂
What theme would you like to make a zine about?
