WOYWW 61

My latest crafty acquisition  is what's on my workspace! I've been lusting after Copic markers for about 2 years now.  These are my pressy from hubby to celebrate being chosen to be part of the Elusive Images Design team!   Not got time yet to play with them as I have some deadlines to meet. The projects are already underway and were  planned without the use of Copics in mind.  As I expect to have to work through a learning curve with the pens I figured it's best to wait till I have time to have a proper play and making mistakes won't matter.   Off to get a refill for my coffee now then have a snoop round some other workspaces! To join the snooping why not visit Julia's Blog - she's the evil genius behind WOYWW!

  2. Lucky you Phree! I have a few Copics, but like you, want to use them properly. I am confident with other mediums, but have yet to use these much. Enjoy them, and what a lovely thoughtful Hubby you have, Judith xx

  13. Ooh, what lovely colours - I think I may NEED some of those, lol. It IS a steep learning curve with the pens, but worthwhile - not that I've mastered it yet. Well done for getting on the Elusive Images DT - look forward to seeing more of your work. I so want to see what's on the outside of that clean craft mat, though - those bits look intriguing!

  25. I have sure been hearing alot about copic markers lately... Still not sure what is so different about them oher than they are refillable, I think! and they are professional. Maybe you could fill me in. So I can know what I am talking about when I go out to play with the other papercrafters.

    Take Care~ Sherry

  32. Oooh have fun with the copics - i went down the promarker route although I think you can mix them (I am too scared to as then I would get addicted to those too and need every colour going!). Thanks for the snoop and great projects there.
