First Ever Copic Club With Cheri

Im so excited to tell you about a new adventure I'm going to start on with my favorite LSS Creative Accents. Once a month, starting on July 6th (that's NEXT TUESDAY) we're going to start a series of Copic nights, where we get together and learn and share colouring techniques with our Copic Markers. We'll learn about shading and blending and light to dark. We'll learn all the ins and outs of the markers. Make sence of that numbering system. All while hanging out with like minded Copic crazy friends! I just cant wait to start. This first week we're going to start off by focusing on of my favorite things.......wait for it.....
We will learn how to follow the rules of light and dark...closest and farthest and make that soft and cuddly fur of theirs look soft enough to curl up on as the sweet boy in this Mo Manning image has.
We'll learn how to make shiny wet noses (A trick that works with water and windows too!)

Add Depth to the fur and shape to the animal. Add highlights with a Gel pen.... prolly tell some stories of our fur kids while doing it all.

Oh....and.... how did this get in here?!? LOL Monster Kitten you can't come too. :o)

OK, so my Copic friends, Mark your calendars and CALL CREATIVE ACCENTS to book your spot. Class will start at 6:30 for beginners (we'll do a quick intro to Copics before the regular class starts for newbies) and 7:00 for anyone who's been to my Beginner Copic Class.
Cant wait and hope to see you there!!!

PS!!! I almost forgot to mention!! This is also the day of our very first BLOG HOP at Creative Accents!!! How cool is that! We will be announcing a very JAMMIN Challenge for the month of July ;o) with some very cool inspiration from some very HIP chicks. ;o) heheheeeeee
Hop you can join us!

OMG I wish....oh forget it. You know what I'm going to say SO maybe for those of us who are logistically challenged, can you edit in some color numbers onto your photos? Would love to learn something from you. Your coloring is fan-FREAKIN-tastik!! I r jealous.
