A Warm Copic Welcome, a Fond Farewell, Hop and a prize!

Today the Copic design team is joining together for two reasons. (Three, if you count the hop prize but first a little info regarding why we are hopping.)

Today we wish to extend a very warm welcome to the a-MAZING-ly talented Jennifer Dove who has joined our teaching team. If you are unfamiliar with Jenn’s work, you must click over to her blog. (You will be there a while as it is truly amazing. She is SO talented!) We’re very excited to have her join us.

On a somewhat sad note, we bid a fond farewell to Lori Craig. I say “somewhat” because while Lori is leaving the teaching team, she is moving into a new position, representing Tommy Art for Imagination International, Inc. She won’t be far at all (and I’ll still be bugging her).  We wish her the very best in her new position!

Here’s a peek at something I created using Tommy Chalk-based Mineral Paints and Mixed Media Stencil Paste. (Also available are metallic paints as well as specialty products, additional pastes, coatings, waxes and varnishes.)

I painted Pale Blue and Vintage Green Chalk Color onto white card stock then applied Stencil Paste over top. I wanted the die-cut “Sending” to match perfectly so I painted Vintage Green onto scrap card stock then die-cut the painted strip once dried. (It dries very quickly.)

Tommy Paint provides deep opacity with excellent coverage. Available in 40 colors (!), two sizes and the packaging is recyclable. That’s always a bonus. :)
