Copic Coloring Guide Blog Hop!

March 5, 2012 |  by  |  Announcements, Copics

Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop!  I am excited to announce my participation and publication in 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 of the most talented artists and designers in the industry 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!
I was humbled to be invited and to participate in this edition of the Copic Coloring guides.  I shared this card created with an image from Tiddly Inks.  I focused on creating the textured foliage in the tree top.
To help kick off the celebration of the new book… each designer on the hop is giving away an autographed copy of the book…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 midnight on Friday, March 9th.  Winners will be announced on the individual designer’s blog.
