Copic Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!!  Today the Copic Instructors in the US and Australia are doing a Blog Hop!!!  We are excited to announce that Marianne Walker's new book called Shadows and Shading is now available.  Designed for beginners, either papercrafters or artists - this is the reference book you have been looking for to help you add shadows to give your projects more dimension!  The book does not teach you to draw, rather to help you add shadow and shading.  This is a wire-bound book that comes with 4 clear printed guides to help you add shadows properly on your own work.


A Blog Hop wouldn't be as much fun without BLOG CANDY!!!  Today each and every blog will be giving away a copy to a lucky commenter!!  That's right, leave a comment and you'll be in with a chance to win this fabulous book!!  If you are an Aussie or Kiwi - you can win on either the CopicOz Blog, Mandi's blog or right here on mine!!  You have until Sunday 6pm AEST to comment on my blog.  My winner will be announced Monday morning Australian time.  If you are in North America, comment on the Copicmarker site or one of the following instructor's blogs!

Please note, some of the girls are hopping on Wednesday (Thursday Aussie time) and some on Thursday (Friday Aussie time).  Many thanks to X-press Graph-x for providing this fabulous prize!

Here's the list of blogs you can comment on for your chance to win.....


Thanks so much for visiting, good luck and happy colouring!!!!  :)
