Copic Comeback!!!

After about 6 weeks of doing practically nothing in terms of scrapping or cardmaking... oh and practically nothing in terms of blogging too in case you didn't notice (LOL!)... I am back!

Too much has happened in the last 6 weeks for me to recap here, so I just won't bother. Instead, I'll share with you what I got up to yesterday...

Yesterday I took a class at Starfish Lane, which is a cute stationary shop in North Perth. I have long known about this store but never actually visited until recently when I set about prchasing the bits and pieces for my wedding stationary (only 12 weeks til our big day!). While I was there I got their timetable and was excited to see that they were running a basic Copic class called A Very Copic Christmas. I had wanted to jump on the Copic bandwagon for a while but had no idea how to use them. In just a few hours, with the help of my very helpful teacher, I managed to learn the art of colouring with Copics and created this adorable Christmas card;

And this was my first attempt using Copics;

This afternoon I raided Just Scrapbooking and picked up 17 markers and a Memento pad. I cannot wait to crack them open and get colouring!!! I am totally hooked!

If anyone knows of any good Copic sited, please share them with me. I have a lot to learn!!!

Well, that's it for me for now. Thanks for stopping by!

YAY welcome back Chloe, I've been wondering how you were.

mmmm I am avoiding Copic's. I don't want a new obsession LOL. Doesn't help when I see one of my friends using them every fortnight at our crop nights.

Love your super cute Christmas card!!

I have just started my copic obsession...I am in the Copic Club over at Lime Tart. I love the resource folder for colouring hints and tips!

Your copic colouring is fanastic, Chloe! Much better than my first attempt. I have to warn you - these are extremely addictive. I have not been able to stop!!

Thanks for the blog love!
