Hello again,  This post is equally exciting.
  On Tuesday, March 1st from 3 to 6PM, the store will host fun stuff incuding a book signing by Barbara herself.  In case you don't know the story of the "Queen of Glitter"  you are in for a treat! 
 I have been asked by Barbara to do a demo on the Cricut Machine, please come and watch.  I anticipate teaching both Cricut and Copic Marker Classes at the store in the near future!!  I have a link to The Art Glitter Webpage on this site, so be sure and click on it!!!!  See you Tuesday!!


Hi again, Sorry I have not been blogging lately, lots going on!  First, I am so excited to report that I will launch my maiden Copic Class at the Prescott, Arizona, Hobby Lobby on March 12th from 10AM to 1PM.
This will be a beginner class and the cost will be 25 dollars, I can only except cash at this time.
You will need to bring your own markers.  A total of 6 would be enough to get started.  You should include a colorless blender and  3 shade of yellow and 3 shades of green.  If you are unsure about the colors, Hobby Lobby does have some in the stock. I will have some paper to share and will furnish a few images to practice on.  Here is  schedule for the first 3 classes.

CLASS #101
Classes will be taught in a series, starting with the basics of using Copic Markers, choosing the paper that works best for you, blending techniques, including feather blending and a little on light source and highlights and shadows. We will also cover the color wheel and how the marker families work together.  You will be given a couple of images to practice on.

Class#102  April 2nd 10AM to 1PM

More on light source and blending colors, ideas on special techniques using the colorless blender. Using the markers to create clouds, color faces and hair. A fun class with a make and take project.

Class #103 May 21st 10AM to 1PM

Monchromic coloring, coloring water, shadows and highlights and fun projects!

Stamping with Markers Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

I started this card with a digi stamp from the Uk. Her name is Joy and the link to purchase her is here   I colored her with my Copic markers.  I like to think she is holding an Easter egg in her hand.  The paper is colored cardstock and the middle layer was run thru my Sizzix Big Shot using the Sizzix large A2 Flower folder.  I distressed the edges using SU ink.  The sentiment lower layer is made from SU paper cut into four circles using a 1 inch round paper punch. I printed the sentiment on my computer and distressed the edges with the same ink I used on the yellow layer.  The embellisment is a roset I had in my stash.  I folder the edges of of the circles  up after glueing them and attached the assembled sentiment with a raised double sided dimension.
Here is the link to the challenge:
