Copic Coloring Guide:Level 2, Bloghop


Good Morning!

I am so excited to participate this morning in the blog hop for my new book, Copic Coloring Guide, Level 2: Nature! Colleen Schaan and I worked so hard on this book. We wanted each of you to be able to learn as clearly and easily as possible, and we both feel that the step outs, blank images, and gorgeous finished projects will help you see each technique and be able to re-create it for yourself.

Annie’s Attic did an amazing job pulling this book together for us. We love how it came out, and we think each of you will love it too. Colleen coordinated a fabulous team of designers to contribute to this project.

I made one card project in the book...for those of you who have your copies, see if you can find it (Stamp: Our Craft Lounge)! However, I had the pleasure of drawing ALL the images that we step-by-step color in the book. You'll love how comprehensive and simple we make the coloring.

So, would you like to win your very own autographed copy of the book??

Please visit each of the blogs listed below and leave a little love. Each designer will be drawing from the comments on their own blog for the winner of an autographed copy. (Signed by Colleen, myself and that particular designer!) Commenting is open until Friday, March 9th. Winners will be announced on individual blogs.

Michele Boyer

Lori Craig

Jennifer Dove-Bonner

Sharon Harnist

Tammy Hershberger

Melanie Holtz

Michelle Houghton

Debbie Olson

Claudia Rosa

Collen Schaan

Marianne Walker ( don't forget to comment here for a chance to win my copy!)

Thank you, and Good Luck!!

Hello Marianne, I am so happy to have blog hopped over to you today. I have been colouring now for a little over one year and still haven’t tackled landscapes due to a lack in confidence where they are concerned.

Having found you I think will be an excellent opportunity to help me continue in my development. Melanie has been a huge inspiratation as well.
