~Life is a Journey~

Are you afraid to use those Copic Markers?



I was at first.



Then, I had fun.


I dabbed.


It's way easier than coloring...it will build your confidence.





Try dabbing in those colors with your copics...the brush stroke end.


You'll get hooked, I'm tellin' ya! ;)







Thanks for stopping in today. ;)

  3. Lovely card Marlena! I was so pleased when I saw the start of your blog post. I was a 'collector' rather than a 'user' for soooo long. Keep playing, it's so much fun!! I LOVE sitting colouring with mine now. In fact you have just inspired me to shut my computer down and go and colour instead lol

  7. I'm afraid to use my Copics, that's for sure. My coloring skills struggle sometimes. But I love how you colored the flowers - the chunky coloring really gives a great dramatic effect! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!!
