Probably not but I'm having fun.  You know how we never seem to find that "perfect container"?!  Well... I'm always on the search to find the perfect colour "assistant" for my Copics.  I've now created 3 and each one is a little different and useful.  Do I use 'em often?  No.  But the process was fun and relaxing (once I'd wrestled a template I liked) and there's nothing like using your own markers and blending them out.  Some of the combinations I've collected don't blend as well on a small "splotch" but to be fair, it's never over 'til it's over and I often blend back and forth between layers and over layers 'til I get a look I want.

The idea/inspiration for this book came from Rhea's blog and online "share" in our Facebook Group, I immediately had a lightbulb moment and knew I needed to take it a step further (okay... you know I love my Bind-it-all lol).   Copic Colourists/Artists are as caring and sharing a community as my Decorative Painting community.  If you'd like to see more colour ideas and get your own template, go to Passionate Paper Creations and scroll down the right hand side to the "Educational Stuff".  You'll be glad you did and you won't feel guilty and I won't apologize for the time you will spend wandering around her site and the massive amount of information freely shared.

The image I used is perfect for this book, Copic Keri from Simply B Stamps
