I am so excited to tell you about the wonderful time I had at my Copic Certification this weekend in Coos Bay, OR. I was so excited to have the Marianne Walker as our teacher. She is not only an amazing artist, but she was an amazing teacher as well. Marianne has some fabulous tutorials on her blog, I like markers. But was even better in person!!! I can not wait for the intermediate class. I had better start saving my money now!!! I had to get a picture with her of course!!
journal. And now I get to share that with you.
I am so glad that I had stamped some pages before I went. I had this image from Some Odd Girl stamped in my journal and she colored the face for me. Then I wrote the colors that she used on the page. It was fun to watch her grabbing colors and adding. When she grabbed the BV's I was concerned! And an E-51 for a white girl? Really!! LOL, I would have never gone there myself!!!
Now on Facebook I "like" the Some Odd Girl page and when I first found Some Odd Girl I remember seeing a post about a husband that had bought up half the store to give to his wife who loves the images. Well, I met that wife at the certification class. Too funny!! Her name is Melissa and her blog is MelissaMade. She is also a very talented crafter!! And a member of the Tiddly Ink design team. I chatted with her a bit and got a picture with her as well!!
After the class my hubby took me to a fabulous LSS that gave all of us at the cert class 20% off our purchases. It was a fabulous store. It carries so much awesome stuff that I only find on line. I wish I had more time to just drool over everything. I did get a couple stamps and a die cut and some of that mounting stuff for my unmounted stamps. That store is Memories of Time. All in all it was a fabulous weekend. Oh yes, on my way home I also stopped at M's in Eugene as I am hearing that M's is starting to sell Copics. Well, that M's had a total of 23 colors to choose from. Yup, not going to be making any special trips for that!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I can't wait to get back in coloring and seeing how much more depth I can get to my images. Are any of you brave enough to add some BV to your faces?
