Art, CHA and Copic Classes

Pin It

 I am back from CHA! What an awesome time, filled with inspiration and fabulous classes!

I have updated my Copic Certification Page...you can find all the new classes listed there. I am going to Phoenix in February....hope to see you there! 

Here is a look at what we were demoing at the Copic booth.....The background is done with our Various Ink (the reinkers for the copic markers). This was essentially dropping ink on the non-porous surface and turn your paper and let the ink drip and fan out on its' own accord.

Psssst.....Copic is looking at maybe getting this non-porous paper in....so fun to do techniques like this. Keep an eye out for it! 

I particularly liked this flower field so now I came home and dressed it up with a sentiment from MFT's "Clearly Sentimental about Art" set.

I added a sweet little corner trim from the "Photo Corners" Die-namics.

It was so freeing to just let the ink do its' thing and release my control over it. You really must try this....and with the refills you have 358 colors to choose from!

Stunning!!! I have to ask, was this photo taken with your new lens? I read the post showing the "Christmas Vacation" ornament and looking at this incredible photo made me wonder!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Love this new technique, Sherrie. Marianne gave us a quick tutorial on how to play and some goodies to take away. I'm sorry I missed you at the show! Glad you arrived safely home.

Sherri, this is beautiful, love the brightness! What kind of paper is it? Will solar white paper work?

Sherrie said...

This is a non porous translucent paper....similar to vellum. Solar white paper wouldn't work for this technique because it is porous and the ink would just soak in instead of floating on top.

Very cool technique, Sherrie -- and gorgeous project! Must try!

Do you think coated or glossy papers would also work?
