Day 1 - Anaheim

Hi, everyone!

It's Day 1 of our trip to CHA in Anaheim, California.
I spent today in a Copic certification class. What a great opportunity to learn about Copic markers & how to use them with stamping!
I learned the basic techniques for using Copic markers as well as helpful information about papers & inks to use with the markers. Next, I need to practice those skills a bit. Wish I had my markers here! I plan to share what I learned in some classes at Fond Memories.

Our instructor was Marianne. Here she shows some air brush techniques.

These are stamped images that I used to practice some of my newly learned skills. The stamp is new from Cornish Heritage Farms.

A closer view......

The sparkle on the flowers is from a Spica marker also made by Copic. After I used the Spica marker along the flower edges, I used the blender marker to move the glitter all over the of the techniques we learned.

And it's official.....

Tomorrow....opening day of the CHA show. Top on our list is the Spellbinders booth! I can hardly wait to see all the new products & visit my favorite booths. Best of all......I'll see Elizabeth at the Penny Black booth.
