How to make a zine, Paper Saturday's link up time

Welcome to another week of Paper Saturdays, our weekly gathering of paper artists. You are all welcome to link your art, there are some instructions at the bottom of this post on how to.

One of my most visited posts at Paper Saturdays is 'How to make a zine' and when I was reminded by someone of my early drawings of one of the main characters on my blog, Lottie popjes, I thought it would be great fun to finally get them all together in a little zine with some inspirational quotes. I have two to give away so leave me a comment bellow if you are interested and I will put you in the draw for next week.

I still love these drawings and I look back at that time with some fond memories but sometimes they make me feel a little sad too as they attracted some negative energy. They became very popular very quickly and they created quite a storm back then. I even did a live class once trying to show how to create them. I still have a link to that class somewhere I may dig it out if it is not too embarrassing or maybe I could make a new drawing tutorial for you, what do you say?

If you are interested in making your own zine click on the above image and it will take you to the template and instructions which is free for you to download.

I really enjoy making zines, I made my first one at the age of 19 and now I'm MRPHPHPH years old and still make them from time to time. I love your little characters.

I make zones, or mini-books as I call them, with my students for different projects. However, I have to say your little characters make them much cuter. Blessings!

I can't imagine your little lovelies attracting negative energy. How sad. I do love them, they always make me smile! I'd love to go in the virtual hat, pretty please :-)
