Copic Markers - And a Goodbye Song to my Friend Marilouise


I have never been a fan of Markers. Just did not like them.  But I took Jane Davenports Class. Supplies Me.  I loved it. I learned so much about pencils, markers and acrylics that I didn't even know as far as brands. Copic Markers.  Ahhhhhhh I am soooooo in love with my new Copic Markers!!!! I could sing!!!!
Especially if you Journal you need to get these pens.  
Really if you are looking for a class that will teach you about supplies and what they do you have to take this class. I would recommend it to anyone. 
Fantastic! 

These are just a couple of samples of journal pages using Copic pens



It is a very sad day for me I have lost a friend of mine this weekend. Very unexpectantly. I was just talking to her on Tuesday at lunch.  We were talking about how only certain people can get away with short hair like hers. She had spiky red hair. And she looked fantastic. She had a smile that could light up a room. And she just had a special energy about her.  She loved her daughter Sarah and her Royal Hockey Team. I just can't quite get a grasp on it yet.    
She has touched so many lives, She will be missed.
I know she is surrounded by love.....
We both had a special love for Brandi Carlile
Here's to you Marilouise with love....

oh Heather i'm so very sorry to hear about your friend, it must've been such a shock that it happened so suddenly. She looked like a lovely person.

I want to ask more about the copic markers but it seems kind of inappropriate in light of your sad news. your work with them is wonderful.

Heather, I'm so sorry for you. It's so hard to lose someone, but even harder when it's so unexpected--my thouhts will be with you and hope that her family can be comforted with friends like you.

I also want to say that you have me sold on the Copics---I took Jane's class also, but she really hadn't sold me on them, but you did with your beautiful faces--Thanks!

Personally I cannot get on with Copics but you have achieved terrific results. Happy PPF and enjoy the weekend, Annette x

I'm so sad for you, Heather, to have lost someone so close to you. Your class must have been very good because your art is just fantastic. I just wish those Coptics weren't so expensive. I'd love to have the varied flesh colors. Maybe someday.
