It's time to play! Zine Playground is a creative prompt zine for you to fill as you like! This is all about making time for fun, imagination, and creative play time.

Here's what to do:

Print the Zine Playground in black and white. (If you do not have access to a g-mail account, message or e-mail me and I will e-mail you the file!) I am happy to send these at any time before and after the swap for those interested!

Follow the prompts and fill however you like! (Style, materials, and prompt interpretation are up to you!)

Make 2 copies and send to your swap partners!

sounds like a fun swap but I can't get the link to work for me... the file doesn't seem to load!

@JaguarSnail I updated it, so let me know if that works. It's a pdf file if that makes any difference. I can load a jpeg or doc if that would be better. Also, I would be happy to e-mail it to you directly. ;)

Doesn't work for me either, I'm afraid...

Okay, I have added a link to a jpg copy. These are saved through Google docs, so perhaps that is causing the problem?

I will see if I can find another way to save them online. Either way, I am more than happy to attach these in an e-mail to anyone who would like that. Everyone who signs up will receive an e-mail after partners are assigned with attached copies of the file.

I just tried again & noticed that below the error message, there was a 2nd option saying that the file needed to be opened in a separate window/frame (sorry, can't remember which). When I clicked the 2nd link I was then asked to log into google/gmail, and was able to view the file. Hope that helps! :S

It seems, as @TangleCrafts mentioned, that you need a gmail account for the link to work. For anyone who has another account, you can message or e-mail me and I will be sure to send you the file whenever you like!

As mentioned, there will be an e-mail sent to all participants with the file.

Another option! My Tumblr page is pretty bare bones at the moment, BUT the image for this zine is now available there as well. You should be able to right click and save the image, then print from there.

As always, I am still happy to e-mail the file to anyone who asks.

The description states ... print the zine playground in Black and white ..... the heads are coloured .. are you meaning these to be printed as is or B & W ? also one of the prompts says "colour some of the spaces left over ". Can you please clarify if the completed zine is to be B & W or contain some colour ?

Hello Cafras - If snout doesn't answer I'll give my opinion - the description say "zine for you to fill as you like!" so I am interpreting this to mean color or maybe even some colour. ;-)

Thanks Angie

I made an edited pdf that prints full size. PM me if you'd like me to email you a copy!

snout 01/13/2014 #

@cafras the original should be printed in black and white. From that point you can fill two separately and send as is or make copies however you like (black & white or color).

Thanks @Angie and @PolkaDotty

cafras 01/13/2014 #

Thanks snout, PolkaDotty. I have printed out B & W copy I will work on "fill as you like " and "imagination" 8)
