Kickin' Off Christmas Bog Hop--Day Two!!

WOW! Wasn't yesterday AMAZING! What a talented group of girls to HOP with :-)
If you have arrived here from iCopic you are in the right place. If not, go back to Amy's Blog and start from the beginning to see all the incredible projects for today.
For today's project I have used two products--Chomas Creations Mini Gel Pen Holder and Copic Markers. These two products are at the very tip top of my crafting supplies. If you read here often you know that I love to play with Amy's Gel Pen Holder and to add Copic's with it is just icing on the cake! I am Copic certified and have recently started teaching classes. I love to color--it brings me back to my childhood and puts me in a very relaxed mood--which is VERY hard to do for me, LOL!



Using my Gypsy, I first cut my shape. Then without unloading my mat, I returned to my design, changed to the Mini Gel Pen Holder from the Blade and began drawing a file I made on the Gypsy. I basically put different elements of my design on different pages in the file and kept drawing over them. I then colored with my Copics, added some Flower Soft in white and was done! I really like how it turned out.
Now it is time for you to Hop on over to Stephanie's Blog. Thanks again to Amy and Samantha and all the participant's for having me join in. And....a big thank you for all the incredible comments visitors left yesterday. On Friday I will be posting another Gel Pen Copic Project that I did for Amy.
See you then!


Here is a list of all the Blogs in case you got lost:
