a life she loved

DM 01 Lori Craig

I’ve been getting ready for a new year of coloring and Copic classes. My friend Kathy Racoosin is hosting a 30-day color challenge, and I felt like there was nothing better to prep for my classes in St. Louis the first weekend in March! If you are in the St. Louis area, come see me!

This is a Taylored Expressions image from the set When Your Heart Speaks. Love.

This is an image that was in a faces and hair class that Copic offered several years ago, and I thought she’d be a great sample in my class portfolio. I colored this for day 2. Braided hair is so fun! Her hair is done with the E30 Copic family. The darker skin complexions are a bit of a challenge for me, and I know practice is the only way I’ll get better – here I used E01 (because I can’t find my E11!!) E13 and E15 for her skin.

This was for day 3. I used a loved stamped set from Taylored Expressions called A Life She Loved. I may end up coloring one more from this set and framing a little tryptic for my crafty office. Coloring glass is something we tackle in our Clothing and Accessories Copic Class.

This little lady from MFT Stamps has been inked on my desk for a few years. I colored her yesterday morning for Day 5. Such a cutie! Her hair is also colored with the E30s family, but her skin is much lighter complexion. I’ve used E51, E21 and E000 (my secret weapon Copic facial concealer!)

My parents are visiting this weekend, but I got up this morning and colored this poppy image from Stampin’ Up! before we get busy with some errands and hanging out… I love a Saturday when I’m busy hanging out! Don’t you!? Coloring Flowers with Copic is a new class that we are offering this year, and I’m looking forward to teaching that in St. Louis, as well!

We’ll see how I hold up on the 30-day challenge. You can find a lot of Copic inspiration using the Instagram #thedailymarker30day! If you aren’t going to be in St. Louis, you can see our full year’s schedule of Copic classes on this page. I hope our paths will cross at some point soon.

I also hope you have a fabulous Saturday…hanging out or otherwise!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Gorgeous coloring. Love the You Color My World, I can think of a few people that applies to in my life. I am so jealous of your coloring skills. Have you set up a proper space for your crafting? Would love to see it. Have an amazing time with your parents there.

  2. Wow! I love your coloring of the SU Bloom with Hope Poppy Stamp, absolutely my favorite!
