Copic Colouring Guide 2: Nature (and a big secret I've been holding on to!!)

Good afternoon folks! Did you hear the buzz about the newest Copic Coloring Guide to hit the shelves by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker?? This book is Level 2 and it's all about Nature. Marianne and Colleen have included a CD with all of the images that were used in the tutorial section so that readers can print out their own images and practice along! There is more focus on specific "how to colour" techniques in this book. Included topics are colouring things from black and white objects, to flowers and foliage, to ground and sky along with many others. This book is FULL of fantastic tips to help you progress along your colouring journey. :)  The projects are shown larger with more detailed colouring instructions so readers can easily recreate the look.  The card assembly instructions have been removed from the book to give more space for colouring instructions. No worries though! The full coloring and assembly instructions for each project on the CD. The book is now available for ordering at Annie's Attic!!

Ok, now for my big SECRET...I have a project in the new Copic Coloring Guide!! That's right...one of my cards is being published! Oh my goodness, I have been sitting on this secret for soooo long and have been dying to share it! I am so honoured to be included among the other fantastically talented designers who also have projects in this book. That's all I can give away for now though...you'll have to stay tuned for further information on the specific projects each designer has in the book. ;) 

I was absolutely thrilled to be a part of this project, and want to thank both Colleen and Marianne for the opportunity. :)  I know that both these ladies have poured so much into the creation of this book, and I want to congratulate them on its launch. I know it is going to be a HUGE success, just like the first guide. :)

Ok, and now for a peek at the gorgeous cover of the Copic Colouring Guide 2!! 




Make sure to order your's soon!

Blessings!

Melanie
