Copic Journal

Hello All,

Well as you all know I have been taking the Kit and Clowder classes, I have completed the skin and hair one and I am almost done on the clothing one too ... In the classes Alyce encourages us to keep a copic journal, I so see the value in that, but as yet I have not yet started one, .... so this is me getting started.

The image is Saturated Canary image and surprisingly enough I have coloured her with copic's .. LOL

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - E47, E19, E17, E13, E11
Apron - 100, BG09, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
T-Shirt - 100, B39, B37, B34, B32
Stripy top - B97, B95, B93, B91
Trousers - 100, C10, C7, C5, C3, C1

This journal was a lot simpler, but I had issues with a rub on and damaged the image :-( .... So I had to embellish further to cover it up, I think it was a happy accident, as I prefer it, I dont know I think I quite like journals that look busy :-)

Blank Journal - hobby craft
Red Card - Co-ordinations
Teal paper - DCWV/going green

  14. hi Juls
    Well the classes are certainly paying off as this is FABULOUS... just WOW to that hair... and what a good idea to make a copic colouring journal..... that may save me having to think about the card I need to put around the image... the dreaded difficult bit! I am registered for the skin and hair one... and I think probably got half way through... but haven't looked at them for a while as I had a lot of cards to do. Maybe that should be one of my resolutions!
