Well time has got away from me a little in the last week or so but I had a great time teaching at Stef’s Papercrafts Weekend Workshop. Loads of washing and tidying to do this week. Now onto more fun topics – being creative! If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I love my copic markers. My layout shows some examples of using Copic Markers on Scrapbook pages and was created for the Get It Scrapped article on the blog today. There are some great ideas for scrapbooking layouts using copic markers in different ways on your pages.
I love the Gorjuss stamp of the girl with the paper dolls and it just reminds me of my daughter and her love of creating things out of paper so I created this layout and coloured the stamp to match my other supplies plus made it look a little like her. It was the perfect embellishment for my page. I also used my copic markers to colour some Heidi Swapp Banners in colours that coordinated with the Simple Stories Papers and added a little colour to my wood veneer camera.
The elements are arranged like they are hanging because it reminds me of displaying kids artwork. I chose the chalkboard background as it fitted really well with my subject and also allowed the colours, photo and embellishments to stand out. The stitching just framed it all and adds just a little more texture to the page.
If you have any questions just leave me a comment. If you want more information about how I colour with copic markers you could check out the Copic Marker Cards Category on the sidebar. I have a posts on Getting Started with Copic Markers and the First 10 markers I would buy, as well as some favourite colour combinations and lots of cards using Copic markers. Michelle Houghton who is a certified copic instructor has lots of great tips on using copic markers on her blog.
