What a month!

Well today makes it one month since I started my blog...shewww! I have learned a lot in in a month...and I still have a long way to go. I wanna take a computer class to learn about links, and a few other things I can't figure out how to work (like my counter) !

I took a class on Copic markers at our local stamp store "StampAntonio" yesterday. It was taught by Geeta Suggs who is a certified copic instructor for A Muse. Copic's are alcohol based ink markers & I had never worked with Copic markers. Years ago in college art classes I used similar Prismacolor markers which are similar. I have mixed feelings about these markers I found them hard to work with. It may be because I really like the watercolor technique I achieve from water based markers. So for now I am gonna stick with what I know & love, but I don't want to limit myself. I love to learn new things & don't want to limit myself! I know all things take practice to get good at. Here is one of the projects from the class. The markers bleed, so on the top part of the icing it got out of the lines.

  1. The card is really cute. I know the feeling you have about the markers. I am concerned that after spending a good sum of money on them, I may not like working with them as much as what I use now. I'd love to take a class also to try them out. I'll have to do a local search.
