Copics Class




Well yesterday Jen & I went to a Copics Class at a scrapbook store in Rhinelander. It was a fun class where we made a few cards using the Copics and got to take 5 home with us. I will post some pictures of the cards I made tho truthfully I'm not sure it is up my alley. I didn't feel that the point was fine enough to get into small spaces and felt like I was coloring out of the lines. I guess it will be something that I will have to play with more to see if it is worth the investment. I do like that they blend nicely and you don't see your lines and also that they are refillable. So what do you think?

I am starting to feel better so this morning I did a HUGE project. During the winter a fellow Fiskateer Betsy gave me a paper rack. So yesterday I washed it and spray painted it and today I loaded up all the Fiskar lines of paper & embellishments into it. I put them in some neat Heidi Grace file folders so that everything I had in that line would be together. Imagine my shock when I realized that I had 43 different lines! and that does not include the Christmas stuff which I put into a file box since I wouldn't be using it on a daily basis. Here's a picture of the finished project. I don't think I ever have to worry about a paper shortage at my house.

Looks like you can work for a while. I loved the cards, but really appreciated your point of view of the copics before I purchase them. Hope you are feeling better!

Great cards. I have a few Copics I bought on ebay but havent figured out how to use them too well. I should take a class. That is an awesome paper rack for storage. I wish I had room for something like that.

Hey Weze' What a lovely bunch of papers you have!
I love copics. But I only have 3. You might want to try Copics Sketch markers. There are 3 or 4 different kinds, with different tips. I'm sure you'll find the one that's right for you. They're so expensive, you need to get it right the first time! lol

Lucky you! I love Copics but unfortunately I have to teach myself as we have no local LSS doing classes. I have found that the main thing is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. I have noticed an improvement in my coloring skills & love the Copics.
