I also attended the Copic Standard Certification class, so I can officially TEACH coloring (I learned so much)!!! How fun is that!? Fun AND therapeutic!!! So here are some of the projects we did during the workshop:
This was just a "doodle" I did. The workshop helps the "artist" to come out of their shell... When I heard we were going to "doodle" - yikes, I can't "doodle"... Altho I do remember doodling on my Pee-Chee Folder in high school. Our Pee-Chees at the time had no color!! But it was fun to add it....
The "doodle" in the photo above was my effort, I had some caffeine earlier so my circles and lines are a little wiggly, but I was ok with the way it came out. Something new, a bit out of my comfort zone!!
We also learned to use the Copic Airbrush System. I wasn't sure about this either but ended up loving it!! Here are a few of my projects and yes, some of them look like they were done by kindergartners!!
The photo above, I LOVE, this was using a stencil!! How pretty is that?
So this was more stenciling, the city skyline is so cool, and it's all airbrushed.
This one with the sun is on a different type of paper, we just put drops of the copic ink and let it run around.
And this was coloring on fabric, I love this little impression from My Favorite Things Rubber Stamps. This little cutie is Doodle Garden Sweet Friend. Isn't she adorable?? This is a little fabric bag, we learned to color on it, how cute would it be with a Happy Valentine's Day stamped on there and filled with someone's favorite chocolate!
This little guy was colored by one of the other ladies taking the workshop, I didn't get her name but she was there to support Operation Write Home at CHA. She did a beautiful job on this little Valentine Doodle Garden I'm Raptor Around Your Finger!!!
This was colored by another attendee, and I didn't get her name either, but love the color combo she used!! Kind of Americana!!
The workshop was AWESOME! I learned so many new techniques, and the whole time it felt like I was "playing". I want a job where I get to do this ALL the time, stamping, coloring, pinning, - that would be the PERFECT job!!
Thank you for stopping by today, have a FUN-FILLED day!!
