A Seaside Art Journal Zine

Today I have another art journal zine to share, I love doing these! It’s fun to have a miniature art journal done in one theme.

You can find the previous zines I’ve participated in here- Space, Sea, Bold, Vintage, Woodland, Spirit, Girl Boss, Goth, Imagination, Infinite Possibilities, Home, Vanessa, Verona, Abstract, Artist, Circus, Secret Garden.

This time, the Zine Squad (Julia, Vanessa and I) collaborated with Cait to make a zine for our artsy friend Gilly. We went with a Seaside theme! It’s a bit different than the Vitamin Sea theme we did last year.

I created the base for this zine! I used a mix of scrapbook paper (for the cover, book pages, gelli prints and watercolor papers.


The cover



I started this page with the map and the giant star fish, and I love how more was added to it.

One of my favorite galaxy pages.

I added the “Enjoy the Sunshine” quote to the left page.


Usually I hate orange, but I actually love the color scheme of this journal. What about you?


I love collaborating on art journals like this! I highly encourage you guys to go visit their blogs and see the rest of the zine, because the rest of the pages are amazing!
