Hot Water!

The challenge at Meljen's Designs is Funny Bone:  use a funny verse or poem on your project.  I knew I wanted to use this image from the new release, but I just didn't know what to pair it with.  Then I found this quote online and thought it was perfect!

I colored Witchy Brew using my Copic markers.  Yes...I am back to trying to get along with my Copics.  In fact, I have fallen in love with them all over again!  I took an online class on the Created From Color website.  Loved it!!  I can't wait for the advanced class to start.

Back to School at Meljen's Designs

Wow...September already!  Where does the time go?!  The theme of the challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is Back to School.  Our area went back to school two weeks ago already!

I just loved this Little Wizard Mouse image from the September release.  I thought he was perfect for a back to school challenge.  I colored him using Copic markers.  Yes...I am back to trying to use Copics.  I have been taking an online class from Created by Color and have found the courage to break them out again.  It turns out...paper is super important!  Most of my frustration using Copic markers stemmed from the paper I was using.  Thanks Kristy and Melissa for a great class.

You should check out the rest of the new release images in the shop.  You won't be disappointed!
