My First Zine

I'm always starting new projects on a whim ... Lately, I have had a "zine jones", so when I saw a mini zine swap over at Swap-Bot, I decided to plunge in.   I kept my little zine simple.   I used some scans of my series of crazy collaged cat cards (ATCs) as the content, with my collaged cat moleskine page as the cover art.

My brain failed to cooperate when I was staging the page numbers ... so it was basically trial and error, until I got it right.   My mini zine is 8 pages (about 2-1/4" x 4-1/4"), laser printed in black on white paper, with a grey card stock cover and machine stitched binding.   I stamped a couple of paw prints in the back with purple ink ... so I guess you could say it is a 4-color zine (ha-ha).

*If you have a mini zine & want to swap with me, give me a holler. I have two more copies available to trade. (And I guess I could always make more.)
