I have a super colourful Zine Squad zine to share today! This is the modern poet zine, created for Rebecca
Rebecca is a true modern poet as well as being a fantastic art journaller, so this was a perfect theme for her and such a fun topic for the squad to work on!

Original Zine Squad: Katie, Vanessa & Myself
Guest Ziner: Tori

- collage, felt tip, ink

- sharpie, watercolour

I wanted to compliment Katie's page on the right. 
This abstract pattern mix of sharpie and watercolour ties the pages together without distracting from the galaxy girl.

Intake of breath
- felt tips, sharpie, water, collage

I used this poem in Oh Comely as my text and created my favourite inky background (in my favourite colour - rainbow) using felt tips and water. The sharpie stripes stay opaque even when drenched with water which I love! 

This technique is explored more in detail in my course for Get Messy; Pen + Ink

- collage, washi tape, stamps, pen

My page on the right is a real mix and match of colour and texture!

- collage, pen

What would a modern poet zine be without a little Rupi Kaur?!
