As promised a couple of photos from the Copic Class held in Sydney on Thursday.
I've long been a follower of Marianne Walker's blog www.ilikemarkers.blogspot.com and have found it an invaluable source of information about colouring in general and colouring with Copic markers particularly. As soon as I read on her blog that she was coming over to Sydney for a Certification class I got my name down, never really thinking that I would be able to get a seat.
Getting the phone call to say I was in and that both Marianne and Lori Craig from Splitcoast Stampers would be conducting the class was a real thrill. I have to thank X-Press Graph-X Supplies P/L for giving us the opportunity to learn from these two amazing artists. It was such a good day.... learning new techniques and confirming information that I had read on the blogs.
Apart from the papercraft enthusiasts, like me, there were store owners and suppliers in the room so it was interesting getting to chat with some of them and to try out some of their products, card stock in particular. I've always bought my good stamping card from the US but will be happy to buy from local suppliers in future...... having the opportunity to try on the day was great. Meeting up with blogger's I knew but had never met was a fun part of the day too.
If you use Copic markers and get the opportunity to attend a Certification class I would highly recommend that you do, you won't be sorry.
Thanks especially to Marianne and Lori for making the day a fun learning experience. Marianne will have gone back to her room with odd coloured earrings and a green wedding band........After proving that you can colour most things with Copics! I have to tell you that I'm thinking one of the Air Guns would be a great tool to own...haha....but maybe after I complete my Copic Set!!!
I hope the girls enjoy their week in Melbourne and leave Australia knowing they've made a difference to some of us Aussie paper crafters. I believe the plan is to train some Australian crafters to carry out training programs in the future so it will be interesting to see which Copic users these will be.
Just a couple of pictures to share.
Sorry.......I hate having my photo taken but it's not right to put others here and not this horrid shot of me!!!!
Hope you'll call past again!!!!!!!!!
