A Vintage 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.

This time our zine was vintage themed, we are creatively calling it “Zintage”.

We created this zine for the lovely Karen Gaunt, who is a fellow Get Messy Art Journaler. Patricia joined Me, Julia, and Vanessa for this zine and I love her collage like style.

I did warn the others that if we were doing a “vintage” themed zine, that I was going to have to do a Star Trek page. I mean, how can you have a vintage theme and not have some good ole 1960’s scifi?

My geek slipped out a little more and Wolverine (from x-men) ended up on a page as well. I had an old X-Men comic I’d been saving for crafts and I Wolverine was just so perfect for this page.

My page above was inspired by vintage quilts. I watercolored some patterns onto the page.

Do you think this girl looks vintage-y, or a lover of vintage? That’s the look I was going for. I painted gesso over book pages and then painted her and my saying on.

I’ve been saving some vintage clip art from the 70’s, slowly using it in projects. I thought it was the perfect time to use this horse.

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!
