A whole weekend of COPICS!!!

***If you missed Starla's blog hop yesterday, scroll down or click here.  I'll keep the giveaway open one more day for late hoppers and will pick the winner tomorrow!  Don't forget to enter her fairy challenge here to get entered into her awesome giveaways!***

So this weekend I had 20 full hours of Copics class!!! :) I got my standard and intermediate certification.  And my instructor was the uber talented MARIANNE WALKER!  This was the first time that Hawaii had a certifications class, and I was on the fence about signing up because I'm brand new to Copics.  My husband pushed me to sign up for the first one and by the end of it I was begging him to go to the second! LOL!  I learned TONS.  I was sure to bring my camera so I could document some of the projects with you guys!

Pretty pineapples! How appropriate!

Woohoo! Markers!

Fun with airbrushing: Marianne airbrushing a student's cast.

Woohoo! Copic airbrushed flames!

Marianne drawing a santa on a peice of scratch paper in 30 seconds.  Amazing.

Who woulda thunk there were so many skin combinations?  Some look better than others...We were allowed to freely test colors.

Me and my final project.

I tried all kinds of hair combinations... I think the pink and blue were my faves. :D

My classmate Analyn, Marianne, me, and the flaming cast.

Me and Marianne!

My self portrait camera shots are terrible.  I think it's because I'm Asian and have short arms...

I think this was the best crafting investment I have ever made.  I was so glad that my husband was so supportive in me getting my certification and attending this class to learn more (and thanks KELLY for telling me about it).  Plus Marianne is a complete sweetheart.  She's so funny, she had me laugh-snorting the whole day! If you're on the fence about signing up for a Copics class, DON'T HESITATE!  You learn so much more than just using the markers.  The intermediate class is catered to cardmakers and papercrafters and gives us the ideas we need to use the markers in our craft at it's fullest potential.  Awesome stuff!

Hope you enjoyed the pics and see you tomorrow the winner of my blog candy!
