A Brave Zine

Today I'm sharing something new- I created a zine! I'm part of an art journaling community  called Get Messy Art Journal challenge (learn more here) and this was inspired by one of the prompts earlier this year.

The challenge was to create a zine, inspired by bravery. A zine is basically a mini magazine or story. I did mine with sort of a comic book style. I spent a while browsing zines and ideas on pinterest and then I used some quotes (and some of my own words) and got started.


These pages are all just doodles and then watercolors. I kept it nice and simple, but it was really fun to make. I drew out the whole thing and then went back in with my paint.


Do you read magazines or zines? I've never really read any zines, but this one was fun to make!

Make Things! Week 8 Challenge- Restyle

Guys! This is the LAST week of the Make Things! Craft Challenge. Have you been playing along? I hope so! :)


This weeks challenge is to do a restyling or recycling project!
I love restyling furniture and home decor! I want to see how you restyle something (this is a perfect excuse to visit a thrift store!). If you don't have time for a big project, maybe try recycling some old object and using it on a scrapbook layout. Be creative!


Galaxy Frame, Wooden Door Mat, Restyled Chairs, Spring Flower Pot.

PRIZE- Product from Hazel and Ruby 


I may be a bit biased, as I am on the Hazel and Ruby design team, but their products are AMAZING! I love their paper rolls and DIY Decor Tape, not to mention their Stencil-Masks! Seriously, if you haven't yet, stop by their blog!

This is the last week and I cannot wait to see what everyone makes for this challenge. Please link up your projects using the inlinkz tool below. You have until Friday, 07-24-15, at midnight to link up.
