Weekend in Review

Our weekend of fun has concluded at the Shoppe, but just want to report little snipits of what went on (in case you missed it!). At Sherry's 2nd Copic Club of the year in the technique class they learned how to color with interest. As Sherry reported, while you can plain 'ole color with Copics, the part that makes it interesting is when you combine blending, color layering and lighting. The focus was on lighting from the front, side, top and bottom. All the class participants were "totally" getting it by the time the hour had passed!

Next, Sherry's Colorbox technique class was to learn about Koh I Noor pencils and how they react with Colorbox ink. Coloring techniques with Prismacolor and Gamsol, as well as three special card folds were taught. Everyone's favorite was the Sympathy card.

Onto Sunday with Lyn's newly revised "Tin" Luggage Ensemble and mini Bind-It-All book class. We covered a lot in 2-1/2 hours! Literally, we covered the hinged tin inside and out, we covered our mini book pages and then decorated the pages once they were bound with the O-wires. Everyone had good laughs over me struggling to remember how to operate my Bind-It-All. Thankfully, I practiced on scrap papers before I ruined anyone's book...well, there was that one page of Barb's I wrecked, but that was quickly fixed with new.
