OCC My Copic Marker Storage


Just a quick post to share how I store my Copics. I loved the storage solutions Jennifer McGuire shared on her blog and the clear Linus bins she uses are happily available locally here in Australia at Howards Storage World and I’ve even found some at Big W. So I have a few of those containers, including an 8″ x 8″ one that I love for my Copics as it has handles and is easy to pick up and take with me. It’s not full so the markers do move around – I’ll probably add some dividers to keep the colour families together, but having learned how to mix colour families in this class I’m less hung up on having them all grouped together anyway!

Thanks for looking!


OCC Copics Cards, custom ribbon & fixing mistakes


So I had another go at colouring this little halloween robot and bat and cut them out to use on a card for the OCC Day 8 homework. The background paper is from the Studio Calico Wanderlust 6×6 paper pad and I thought it looked a little like a birch forest background. My new Wink of Stella pens arrived last week, including a black one, so I decided to colour the bat wings. After I’d stuck it on the card of course. And without testing the pen on scrap paper first. Can you guess what happened? Yes it ‘blooped’ all over the card – a big splotch in fact and some little splatters. Well I just added some more splatters and cut out a bigger circle for the moon to cover the biggest splotch. So I’m also putting this card in the Mistakes gallery :).

Oh, and I also used my Copics to colour some plain white taffeta ribbon which I used on the card – it  didn’t need a heavy application and I think I can stop buying ribbon in every colour now!

Thanks for looking.


OCC Copics Day 6 Colouring Animals




I have quite a few of Lawn Fawn’s critter sets (they’re so adorable and perfect for kids’ birthdays!) and so I was really excited about this lesson in the Online Card Classes Copics course. I did the homework over a week ago but just haven’t had a chance to post it until now. I coloured the dogs and foxes using techniques that both Kelly and Sandy demonstrated – I want to keep working on the long fur/short fur flicking technique!
