New/Old Class and More

Well, I said that I was reworking my Crazy for Copics class, and it is finally done! I had to redesign the class for a couple of reasons. First, several of the stamps I used in the original class have become discontinued, so I don't want to use them anymore. Nothing frustrates people more than using supplies that are no longer available! Second, I didn't really plan ahead when designing the first class in that I used stamps from 6 or 7 companies. That meant that Angela would have to place 6 or 7 separate orders just to get the stamps. Yikes!

I want to be clear to people who took the first class that the new class is exactly the same in terms of what markers are used, what information is covered, and what techniques we will practice. The only difference is that we will make new cards primarily using Hero Arts stamps with an Impression Obsession stamp thrown into the mix. Basically, the class is meant for new Copic students or people in need of a Copic refresher course.

On an unrelated note, mom and I went to Williamsburg for the day to see the Christmas decorations. They decorate using natural materials such as leaves, twigs, dried flowers, fruit, grasses, and shells. Aren't they beautiful?!

Really love the magnolia leaves!

Okay, MOSTLY natural elements with the occasional musical instrument added:

Love the non-traditional wreath base!

Here is a close up:
