A little zine is finished

We QB5 girls are all busy making zines. And when they're finished we send them on to each other to add a page or two.

The first zine to arrive in my letterbox was Patty's... it's a very textural zine with a cover made from velvet. Patty's theme is medieval. Dear me was New Zealand even here in medieval days?

And here is Patty's first completed page. I have no idea what to do at this stage!

We're just not that old over here in New Zealand! So I thought I better improvise for my page.

A little bit of tissue, some ink and BINGO! Grubby! Were they grubby in medieval times? Now, I need layers....

Mmmm, some layers and a Tragedy! What a combination, that's got to be good for medieval zine!

Layers, a Tragedy, London, 1623.
Made in Palmerston North, 2012.

That's the page done. Hope you like it Patty!
