Copic Certification

I’ve been missing in action for a couple of days because I’ve been in Chicago getting Copic Certified!!!  I’m so excited about this.  Like I’ve said before, I’ve been so afraid to use the markers I have because I wasn’t sure how to use them.

The class was hard but so worth it for me.  It was hard because my blending didn’t look as good as the other students sitting at my table.  So, I decided to really work really hard to get my blending down pack.  The more I practice the better I became.  I’m so proud of myself.

From now on, I am going to use my Copic markers for my coloring.  My instructor was amazing.  Big shout outs to Debbie Olson, she really helped me get going.

I’m taking another class in June in Maryland on Whimsical Hair and Faces.  I can’t wait.  Coloring hair was tough, so the more I practice the better for me.

Below are some samples of my practice cards:

I am really glad I traveled so far to learn how to use my Copic markers.  It was worth the trip, time and money.  Plus Chicago was really nice too.  I stayed in Rosemont.  The Doubletree by Hilton was awesome too.  The staff was great.  I was able to do some shopping at the Outlet store which was right across the street from the hotel.

I’ll be posting another card later today.
