Copic Certification

This past Wednesday, I was so lucky to spend the day in a Copic Certification class with Marianne Walker!!! If you are not familiar with her, you can find her blog at I Like Markers. She is such a talented lady. I think what the coolest thing was is actually getting to see and touch her portfolio. Many of the drawings on her blog were in her portfolio! It was so cool to see them up close and personal.

We learned tons of info on papers, the purpose for each of the different styles of markers and tips, multiple coloring techniques, how to create unusual textures and patterns....the list goes on. I have already started to use some of the techniques and WOW what a difference! It certainly does help when you learn from the best! LOL!

Thanks Marianne! I learned so much and I'm so happy to be Copic Certified!! I'm off to go color!

Have a wonderful day!

Congratulations Sue. I am drooling for that course, but I am located in a small town in Canada. Hopefully somedays they will offer a class close enough for me to attend. Can't wait for you to share your skill with us!
