WOYWW - Week 152

Hi All

I tried really hard last week to visit and comment on all the entries but unfortunately the call of the Florida craft shops was too great so apologies to anyone I didn't get to. Check out all the other desks at Julia's blog

This week I have moved into the dining room lol, I attended a copic colouring class at MFT Stamps in Eustis and have found myself colouring ever since. I had to buy some colours to attend the class as all my copies are in the UK and I must say I had a blast on the day.

On the table is a set of images from the colouring class that I am finishing, some trials of the stamp set from Taylored Expressions and some baby wipes lol.

Thanks for looking

Hello Amanda!

I am the lucky first post! I am a newbie to Copics too and wish I could take a class. I have looked on line but not the same as in a class with people. You look like you are really good.

Good to meet another copic girl.
If you have time stop by my desk this is my second week on WOYWW.

Hi Amanda,

Don't you just love coloring - it's so relaxing. It takes me back to childhood when I just loved to doodle and color. And look at me now -- over 50 and doodling and coloring! Yep, it is a second childhood!!!!

How lovely to be able to attend a class like that. I love my copics and find I use them a lot. Thanks for the peep at your workspace - thanks for sharing - Hazel, WOYWW #10 x

Hi Amanda, Mrs Pea Green from wet Hampshire calling. Belated happy WOYWW - and your video of the stash haul is great. Lucky you - and where's that sunshine I asked you to send huh, huh?

I think coloring is the best! It reminds me of the "good old days." You know, when you were a little kid and the most pressing thing was if you could get enough playtime in before nap time. I took a Copic coloring class and found it very enlightening and made me love Copics. I had a strong like for them before but now its love. That's funny you had to buy some more just to take the class.

Thanks for visiting my workspace this week. Would love to get Copics - one day when my finances allow! Ali x #170

Sheri said...

I so want to get into Copics, but so far only have the colorless blender and one light gray for shading. I can use those with other techniques. Looks like you're doing great with your coloring. Thanks for popping by my blog.

Loving your images, it seems like you're enjoying your colouring anyway! I'd love to be able to go to a colouring class but there are none near me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog last week - sorry it's taken so long for me to get back, it's been a hectic week and I'm not sure why!!
