How to create a Zine

 How to Make a Zine
Zines (pronounced 'zeens', shortened from the word 'magazines') are small independent publications. Fun and easy to make, they are a great way to get your points across and make sure the voice of the people is heard.
~Make a 12-page (10 pages plus a front and back cover), 8.5' x 5.5' zine. Start out by taking three pieces of regular sized computer paper, fold them in half horizontally, and hold them sideways like a book.
~Next you need to pick your subject(s). It doesn't need to be all on one topic. You can have a different topic on every page if you want. Some popular topics are: stories, polls, video game tips, talking about a band you like, comics, artwork, recipes, fashion tips, local news, and politics.
~Pick a title. A good title is short, to the point, and easy to remember.
~Start looking at the layout. You can do the write-ups by hand or on the computer, as long as it all fits on your page size.
Make your master copy. This will be what you use to make copies from. Everything should be firmly fastened down and the way you want it to look like.
Start making copies. The easiest and cheapest way to print up a zine is usually a making 'two-sided copies;' i.e., you're copying both sides of a master sheet onto both sides of a blank sheet.
Start handing your wonderful creation out!

wish upon a star

The wishing on a shooting star is believed to have originated around AD 127 – 151 by Greek astronomer Ptolemy when he wrote that the Gods will, out of both curiosity and boredom, occasionally peer down at the earth from between the spheres where stars could sometimes slip out of this gap, becoming visible as shooting or falling stars. The Gods, it’s believed, tend to be more receptive to wishes made during these times. But many other cultures also revered the shooting star, such as the Jews and Christians believing them to be fallen angels or demons and the Greeks thinking them the rising or falling of human souls. In other instances, like when a shooting star is seen in Chile, it’s believed one must pick up a stone when someone sees the star or in the Philippines where one must tie a knot in a handkerchief before the star’s light is extinguished. There is also the legend of wishing on the first star you see at night, which we all know, if from nothing else, this little rhyme: “Star light, Star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.”

Creative Souls Featured Artist Richie Montgomery - Electrickoolaidart

With a grateful heart, a loving soul, and an open mind, I present to you ElectricKoolAid Art... Please check out the short videos!!

My philosophical surrealistic drawings are known for their unique twist on life and our perspective of it. The "hidden in plain sight" details of my work are ruminants of the great masters like M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali. My work takes an extraordinary amount of time to complete, sometimes up to 3 months or more as the very fine details take quite a while and are sure to keep you asking questions forever. The more you look into the art the more you will see, the details are quite mind blowing and zooming in close is highly recommended. Along with many other things, there is a duck and a penny hidden in almost all of my works. I include them for the love of my girlfriend because on our first date we fed the ducks and to this day when me or her find a penny on the ground we give them to each other as an 'I Love You" penny. I enjoy drawing my hyper-detailed art very much and hope that you will as well.
I have been drawing my entire life and have had no formal training other than just my own desire to create from the time I could hold a crayon or pencil. I enjoy many different types of art yet surrealism holds my passion the most.
I get my inspiration from my many travels throughout the country while living life as homeless alcoholic train-hopping and hitchhiking to get around, my strange view of the world and the strange quirky nature that I have on life. I gained sobriety and with that change in my life, I gained a whole new perspective. While begging for money in Harvard Square, I met a woman who finally gave me a reason to actually live, instead of spending my life chasing the next beer, God sent her to me and now I am living my dream. I have settled down and finally had and took a chance to actually do something with my life besides drink, I decided to pursue my art. I spend an enormous amount of time drawing each and every fantastic detail and enjoy every line and dot that fills the paper.

Creative Souls Featured Artist Cerrie Anne

Life is discovery! I spent my life chasing money and a career in sales, I spent 6 years in Vancouver and 1 year in Ontario, then after a failed relationship I moved back home  and for the past 5 years I have been living in Winnipeg.
I spent the first year after moving back from Ontario asking myself why? “Why did my life suck?” “Why, can’t I meet a normal guy?”, “Why can’t I be happy?”, “I’m a good person, why does this always happen to me?”…. “why…WHY … WHY!!???”
The next 3 years I spent bettering myself as a whole, I started reading and I began to connect to truth and finding real purpose. One day along my journey about 2 years ago I decided to leave my job, give up my apt and spend the summer at the lake. I got a job and I disconnected from what I knew for so long. Something inside was changing and I felt a pull coming from within, I had to follow, it was my beginning. Weeks past and I felt my self-becoming free, I would walk daily and I really started to connect to a deeper place within. I was connecting with nature on an extreme level; I started to see the faces in the moss and beautiful designs on the organic Greenery around me. On one of my first kayaking outings, I found myself feeling safe and headed out further than normal; I ended up Kayaking along the water’s edge, looking ahead I saw this piece of wood, staring at it and thinking ”no way! That says Love”  The roots of a dead tree were sticking out of the water and read “Love” Later that day, I found myself a little ways from that spot. Jumping onto shore I started to look around and discovered some wood, I began to throw it closer to my kayak, what I didn’t know was as I was doing so my Angels were placing them for me safely on the ground, I saw this and went back and built my first Wing, It’s my Largest wing so Far and not for sale, I make make them in all sizes, I’ve made them as small as a magnet .
Fear was the demon I wore on my back most my life, when I replaced it with Faith in life and in myself, the questions I started to ask myself now changed, like I did. The Fear Knot Angel wing is special, it’s for you to stick along your daily path. When you see it let it calm you knowing that no matter what you’re doing, The Angels are there to protect you on your Journey.
Live in Love

THE ECBD Project - Her way of giving back 

They say to dream big... I Dream of a world full of unconditional Love. 
Earth Child by Design; is an Organic, Natural and Gmo free ingredient Company.
The Design of my company is to bring Natural, Organic and Gmo Free ingredient products to people who want them, as well as for the poor who aren’t given a choice to have them.
Poverty is a sad reality that exists and 1 in 10 people are living in poverty.

The thought came to me over 7 years ago, I was in a situation. Being in a new city at the time I had to ask for extended help from some of the local resources available, at this time I would have been considered less fortunate. Being set up with the basic necessities for survival by these fantastic organizations gave me a feeling of renewal and the thought that it's going to be okay.

One of the things that I received was a mixture of random hotel shampoos and at that very min I remembered the day before, I was walking past a well-known bath and beauty store and thought how wonderful it would have been to buy some bubble bath. I just wanted the reality of what I was in to go away.
While taking my bath in my hotel shampoos... I thought there has to be more that I could do.

Years past and it stayed with me as a thought, popping up every time I saw a struggling mother with her children or someone sitting alone looking lost or in need of help.
One day after suffering with a terrible rash all the way up my neck, I sought help from 3 Dr’s and with 3 prescriptions, and 2 months later I finally got sent to a Dermatologist. It was clear to him and he told me "Cerrie, you have Ezema."

With this life affecting info I became aware and went on a mission to give myself the best. I realized a lot of the products can be full of preservatives and full of genetically modified and synthetic ingredients which turned out to irritate my skin and remain toxic in my body.
I was just a little careless at times and didn't really care what I use on my skin.

I've spent time perfecting recipes for my sensitive skin. I haven't had an outbreak since using my products I haven't had the need to use anymore proscribed medicated creams. I can't help but believe that Natural and Organic Gmo free ingredients are the way to go. 

Ecbd project was formed from a situation which gave me the feelings I needed to form the thought, it was all triggered by a skin issue, that I'm now blessed for having.
 By supporting Earth child by design a portion of all proceeds goes in support of  The Ecbd Project ,creating hand crafted Natural, Organic and Gmo Free ingredient products for the poor. No matter the circumstances in one’s life there is always enough to go around.
