Margaret’s Zine

earlier this year the QB5 swap group I’m part of started a zine round robin…

more info on what we are up to along with photos of the beginning of my Medieval Thymes Zine can be found here

*Patty’s Medieval Thymes pages above*

back in April I worked on Linda’s Grandma’s Photos Zine which was lots of fun…

then it was time to play in Margaret’s cool themed zine…

*cover above made by Margaret*

there was so much I could have said about my Love/hate relationship with bras that I found myself stalled for a good long while…

I gave up on the idea of using fire in my pages and finally got busy 😉

Madonna had come to mind originally so I went with an iconic image of her from 1990…

Margaret included some great magazine snippets and other bits which is where I got the words “It’s more serious than they’ll admit”…

 the card in the glassine envelope was inspired by something I learned to make back in the early 80’s…

you can find out more about that here

hopefully you’ll be amused and not shocked…

I wanted to link a video showing how it was done but could only seem to find a couple with music I really did not care for…

I enjoyed collaging scraps of paper with gesso and paint around the Bingo sheet that Margaret had added to the right page, using bits of yellow lace and a new black bra strap…

two more zines left for me to work on in this Queen Bee swap rotation…

we are moving slowly on this project with no set deadlines…

  14. Sounds like fun!


  15. Love/hate relationship with bras? Mine is pretty much totally hate. Why are there no pretty ones for people of a ‘certain’ size? AND the person who invented those extreme instruments of torture called underwires ought to have been shot at dawn. (Hey – THAT would make an interesting twist for a journal page!)

  19. Several years ago I hosted a “boob” swap. We made tip-ins based on bras and boobs. I wish I’d known about this technique back then. It is a hoot!!

    I think you have hit on something here. Isn’t it nice to express your feelings thru art. That is a lesson too.


  21. Ha, ha – this must have been great fun to do – love that theme!


  22. Oh how funny! Love the bra that rewinds time, although I absolutely hate the damn things! Were they invented as a form of torture?
