With Gratitude...

So I am playing with the copics again! They still really freak me out.  I just can't figure them out.  My friend Jen and I took a class too.  Well, we learned more "about" them then we did the coloring aspect so maybe that doesn't count.  So here are two more small attempts!  In real life it doesn't look too bad but now that I have them posted my blending doesn't look the best!  I have a goal to keep trying though!  Not gonna quit!  :)



And another card, same but different colors...



Hope you 4th weekend went great!  It has rained here now for 40 days and 40 nights!  OK, not really but we did get 6+ inches in less that 48 hours!  You really need a boat to get anywhere in Kansas at the moment!  I think I can hear it raining AGAIN now!  Talk about soggy!!

  1. Laurie, I think you did a wonderful job with the Copics. I took a similar "Learn about your Copics" class and was disappointed because I couldn't care less about the history of the pens! I wanted to play! LOL Anyway, these butterflies turned out very nice... soft and delicate. :) Great job!

  16. I think your copic colouring looks beautiful! I adore your style Laurie - you really let colour, shape and texture speak for themselves - your cards are always so well 'centred' - how does one explain that delicate balance - where things just feel exactly right???!!

  21. Hi Laurie! Love your cards and style!

    The BEST Copics tutorial that I found (and I'm gonna use when I'll be able to afford Copics :-) ) is here. Take a look if you want.

    I lived in Lawrence, KS for 9 months or so and, although I really enjoyed my life there, I couldn't understand how people there put up with the weather! Awfully hot in the summer, piercing cold in the winter and very humid! Maybe you are used by now. :)
