Copic Coloring Guide – Win A Coloring Book

Good morning and welcome to a very special blog hop!  I am excited to announce my participation and publication in the new
Copic Coloring Guide, Level 3: People!
Authors Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker have partnered up again with the team at Annie’s and some of the most talented artists and designers in the industry to bring you a quality publication packed full of techniques, theory, tutorials, and inspiration.  The 64-page book is the next step in the Coloring Guide series, offering information and educational material for crafters of all skill levels.
From the how and why behind picking colors and coloring skin to the tips and techniques for coloring hair to the helpful hints on how to create realistic looking clothing and fabric, this book presents information in an easy-to-follow format.
An included CD contains all of the hand-drawn images used in the tutorial section of the book, along with the assembly instructions for all of the projects, and a number of blank reference charts.

Each participating designer is hopping today to give you a peak at their favorite project from the book - and a chance to WIN your own autographed copy!

"I'm so excited to have this card in the book published. It is called Japanese Thank you. Unfortunately I was not able to submit to the next Coloring book because we have had the water damage in our house just around the time we could submit cards for the magazine.

My card layout is very simple and clean. You can find instructions and of course the numbers of Copics I have used in the new book. The image and Design paper I used is by Magnolia and can be found at Sir Stampalot. Remember Sir Stampalot also has the brand new limited Edition Copics for sale now.

To help kick off the celebration of the new book... each designer on the hop is giving away an autographed copy of the book...signed not only by Colleen and Marianne, but by the individual designer too!  Please comment on this post for your chance to win your copy of mine!  Commenting will be closed until midnight on Friday, October 26th.  Winners will be announced on the individual designer's blog.
