Copic Certification

Those of you who follow my blog, or have seen a lot of my artwork, know that one of my favourite weapons of choice are the COPIC markers. Oh, how I love thee, let me count the ways!!!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take a COPIC Certification Class with Sherrie Siemens, a member of the COPIC design team, and a cardmaker extraordinaire. Visit her blog, Card Creme and you will see what I mean! Inspiring in so many ways, Sherrie is truly a kindred spirit. Anyone who names her blog after the frothy top of a latte is a girl after my own heart!

So I spent last Saturday in a creative heaven, learning great tips and tricks to use with my beloved COPIC markers. I also had the opportunity to work with the COPIC Airbrush system....I have to get one of those. As the girls in the class heard me say, I want one so bad it HURTS!!! Copic ink will color on pretty much anything - metal, glass, fabric, so the airbrush is a great way to add these colors evenly to your embellishments...

Being in this class gave me an opportunity to meet some wonderful people from near and far with similar interests, not to mention some wonderful business owners.

Here are my buddies from my table, Peggy and Amanda from Paperworks Co. and Camille from Scrap 'N' Bean.

We all had so much fun, and I am now a Certified Copic Instructor, which means I can teach others all about my favourite tool!
