Totally awesome Copic technique classes offer a wide spread variety of all the basic steps of using Copic markers. Each attendee will receive a special 16 page Copic workbook with directions for each technique and images especially selected for that technique.

October 15 - Class Projects - Redlands CA

Hello Everyone!
Boy oh boy I have been creating like crazy! I have over 10 classes scheduled over the next month or so. I am trying to do different cards for each class!
Yikes! Here are the ones we will be doing at Collective Journey on October 15th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. If you want to come and cant make it, we will probably open a duplicate session! Hope to see you there.
Check out all of the CUTE designer paper that I found at CJ. The colors and images match the images perfect! Most of the new paper is by My Minds Eye... Never heard of it before... but you can bet I will be looking for it in the future... It is wonderful and high quality two sided dec. paper. LOVE IT.
