Start of Summer Copic Blog Hop & Give Away!

Welcome to the Start of Summer Copic Blog Hop!

As summer gets into full swing, our Copic teaching team will take a short break from teaching to focus on refueling their creative juices and preparing classes for the Fall season and brand new classes for 2017.

Although we've hit pause on teaching, we are ramping up for the fall season of Copic Workshops:  More Whimsical Faces and Hair, Vintage Values and Mono Tones, and Dress For Success: Clothing and Accessories! All three of the workshops will be taught at all 9 of the following locations this fall.

Registration is NOW open for these three locations:

Chicago, IL August 19th-20th

Dallas, TX August 26th-27th

Edmonton, AB August 26th-27th

The rest of the fall classes will be opening soon; so make sure to register to get e-mail notifications so you will be the first to know when classes are open in your area.

Click the link above, and scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up.

Upcoming Copic Workshops will be held in:

Las Vegas, NV September 23rd-24th

Sacramento, CA September 23-24th

Boston, MA October 14th-15th

To celebrate all this Copic coloring goodness, we are sending you on a journey, hopping through our Copic instructors' and friends' blogs.  Not just for the sake of hopping, NO…but rather for one FABULOUS prize!


One lucky winner will win a pass to attend a single Copic Coloring Workshop class in the US or Canada in the 2017 season. ***(We will not be offering an alternative prize for those living outside the US or Canada. You are welcome to participate, but be aware that the prize will be for a class in the US or Canada in the 2017 year)***

So how do you win?

You will need to answer the 6 questions listed at the bottom of the latest post on Michelle Houghton’s blog. There is one question related to each of our bloggers today; so you will have to check them all out! Then send a quick e-mail to Michelle with your answers. (instructions on her blog) Those who have all 6 questions answered correctly will be entered into the drawing to win the Copic Coloring Workshop.

***E-mails must be received no later then Midnight Eastern time, Saturday, June 25.

While I have your attention, I'd like to share a card I created using one of my very favorite techniques for creating backgrounds.

Now, this card clearly has a lot more going on that just that background; but can you guess what I used to create the background?  Did you say air-brushing?!  Well, gosh you're exactly right!  Nothing, and I do mean, nothing creates a background more quickly and beautifully than the Copic Airbrush System.  By far, it's one of my best investments!

You can find full details on the background as well as the entire card, which was created with Taylored Expressions stamps & dies, right HERE.

Before you go, be sure to swing by the rest of the team blogs to see what they've cooked up for you!
