Zine Ziney Zine Zine

School starts on Wednesday, it is now Sunday night. But guys I have really been cramming things into this last week of summer, since my last blog post really. After 3 weeks of basically sleeping, eating and intermittently being creative when it hits 10.30pm, I have actually been sociable and have left the house before 10.30 on four consecutive days. 10 points to me.

I also started and finished a zine. The 'and finished' part of that being the most emphasised. I must have started a gazillion of them and not ever finished. But I have. So here is the cover.


It's called 'Teenagerms' and is about youth, growing up, age and stuff like that. I'm not cool enough for ask for people to contribute because no one would, so it's just stuff by me in it. I am unsure as to whether I'll make a second issue or not. I'll photocopy it part colour part black and white. It's 18 pages long, 20 with the covers included, and consists of collages, art (if it can be called that), ramblings and a playlist, too.
Here are some scans to give a sort of preview. 



I don't want to give too much away so these are only four pages. 

Comment here if you want one, and I'll send like, up to 10 copies for free anywhere in the world. I will put it on Etsy too once I've used up my stamp budget on those 10 so if you want one you can buy it for like the smallest price ever which will basically cover postage and that's it. You can send me your address to my email or message it on Tumblr, which are both linked at the side. 

Here are some youth themed pictures and some of my back to school stuff, because an amalgamation of thinking about school and the thought that I won't be young forever inspired this zine, so it makes sense to share it, too.

Oh, and this song is the Rookie theme song for August and it's called Teenage Girl (it's even cohesive with the idea of this zine how fantabulous) and you should listen to it. Go.

The playlist I made for this zine is on my 8tracks here http://8tracks.com/hollielillian/teenagerms

Commence pictures

Top:From Tumblr. I like the sort of 'young lady' make up desk aesthetic, and there's a barbie in there for childhood toy good measure. Bottom: A picture I bought at a car boot called 'Jen's 10th birthday party'.

 I made this crown at 1am the night before sports day, to wear on sports day. It has pipecleaners, flowers and tacky plasticky beads on, so it's more of a junk crown, and something a toddler would find very attractive. 


 From LIFE magazine. 50s/60s high school students. Others from Tumblr.

60s students. 


My sister was bought a candy necklace making kit by our grandma. On what planet does candy jewellery not equate to childhood.




I liked this for the lipstick drawing and young love sort of idea. I don't know. I wish I knew what it's from though.



Another cheesy picture of my face.

I bought the My little Pony annual in the first picture at a car boot sale for £2 a few weeks ago.  


My skirt with candy on it.

I also have posts planned n stuffs, which is exciting. I will show you my room and have a collective mopey end of summer holidays post on Tuesday with  at least some aesthetic value as I have a lot of film from the past two weeks to get developed. I also bought some beyond wonderful clothes. Basically life is pretty good right now.

Can I also tell you how painful it has been to use candy throughout this for consistency. Candy is a cooler word though, it just feels weird being British to call it that.

Tally ho!

EDIT: The 10 free copies of my zine have gone but I will soon be putting it on Etsy asap!
