Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop! I’m excited to be part of the new Copic Coloring Guide, Level 2: Nature!
Authors Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker have partnered up again with the team at Annie’s Attic and some very talented artists and designers to bring you a quality publication packed full of techniques, theory, tutorials and inspiration. The 64-page book is the next step in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters of all skill levels.
From the introductory suggestions for creating a Copic journal and tips for working with digital images, to explanations of advanced blending techniques and detailed tutorials for coloring specific objects, the book presents useful information in an easy-to-follow format.
A bonus CD comes with the book that contains all of the hand-drawn images used in the tutorial section of the book, along with the assembly instructions for all of the projects.
Each participating designer is hopping today to give you a peak at their favorite project from the book – and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy!
The techniques I’ve used here include shading with gray and leaving white as highlights, which you can find out more about in the book. (As a side note, I also dyed the ribbon using an R59 Copic.)
To help kick off the celebration of the new book, each designer on the hop is giving away an autographed copy, signed not only by Colleen and Marianne, but by the individual designer too! Please comment on this post for your chance to win your copy of mine! Commenting will be closed at 10 a.m. EST, Sunday, March 11th. Winner will be chosen and info posted here on my blog on Sunday afternoon.
