Creative Scoop Princess Coloring Class

I am taking an awesome class from My Creative Scoop - Princess Coloring Class.  Mindy's classes are fantastic at explaining and showing you how to use Copics.




I started with the Belle image and used the same colors as listed on the Supply List.

BEFORE




 AFTER


I still have so much to learn. It is great being able to watch and rewatch the video. I also like the classes because I can figure out what I need to improve with my coloring. 

For Example
   - I need to do better at holding my markers up straight
   - I am not good at leaving white areas
   - When making strands of hair, I make the lines too thick.

Those are just a few of my take aways. 

I highly recommend you check Mindy's Classes out!!

New Creative Team!!

I am really excited to share that I am member of My Creative Scoops first creative team. Mindy focuses on coloring with Copics.  I had found that I was doing all these different crafts and not really being good at any so I decided I need to focus on one area. Since I enjoy coloring so much, I decided to choose learning how to use my Copic markers for blending, shading, etc.. Being on Mindy's team is the perfect match!!

I have already been working on Mindy's Mega Marker class and it is fantastic!! She does so well explaining what she'd doing while showing me how to do it. Mindy also includes the exact images she is using so you can follow along!!  I also LOVE the fact that I can watch the videos over and over as well as stop and pause while watching. If you are interested in taking a class you can click on my affiliate link to head over there.

The other exciting piece of news is that Mindy will be opening an Etsy store for her digital stamps May 1st. Stop back that day to see some of her first images!!
