Coloring ribbon and Certification updates
I am constantly using Copic markers on just about anything I can find. Many times I simply take for granted that people might want to see what I am working on, since frequently it seems so simple. Today I was coloring some little ribbon flowers and I remembered that I should post something!
Here are the dainty ribbon flowers I was making. I had a pack of white Offray ribbon flowers that I needed to color and make into little centerpieces. I colored the flowers with RV21 and V04 markers. I then colored some bits of white grosgrain ribbon with a YG11 marker.
I cut a little circle of cardstock just big enough to glue three flowers to, and stuck the flowers on using the new Clear Gel Glue by X-press It that we sell. This bottle is awesome, by the way! It has a lot of glue in it and it holds all sorts of things. I let it dry really well, then I added the green "leaves" of folded ribbon to the back of the circle.
Now my little flower centerpieces are ready for my project!
Upcoming NEW Copic Classes!
It's been a while since I updated my blog with all the great classes we have in the next few months. You can register from our website for any of these upcoming classes.
We have a totally NEW workshop, coming up in August. This is part of our new Special Projects Workshop Series. Crafters get a chance to make finished projects using Copic products.
For the first workshop, there are two classes, you can choose to take one or both. Each is a half-day, and super exciting. Talented instructor Michelle Houghton is joining us to share her love of mixing mediums and will be teaching Copic Doodle Bead Jewelry Set and Copic Mixed Media Apron. Both classes are completely hands-on and attendees leave with completed projects!
Special Project classes will range in location, duration and price and will typically be limited-location/time only offerings, so sign up soon!
You can find out full class details and apply HERE on the Copic education page.
Meanwhile, you can register now for summer Certification classes. We have many locations in August, so if you've been waiting to take one of our classes, wait no longer. Popular locations fill quickly, so sign up now on our website!
