Grown up Colouring

As a child nothing gave me more pleasure than a colouring book and some coloured pencils. I would spend hours with my tongue wedged firmly in the corner of my mouth, trying to keep the colour in those thick bold black lines. I've rediscovered that Joy with Copics and Promarkers. Originally it was Copics all the way, I love the soft brush tip and found the Promarkers a little hard. Last weekend I went to The Craft Box for a Molly Blooms workshop, I hadn't taken my pens so had to use the Promarkers put out for the class, a bit of practice and hey presto! The other thing that helped, Copics are now £2+ a pen, Promarkers if you shop around £1.50, my purse is doing the talking now!
Here are some of the great projects we made:

 and here are some of my practice pieces, all ready for adding to cards. These were coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers.

The next workshop is scheduled for the 3rd July, so if you fancy learning how to get the same effect and make some lovely projects go and book yourself a seat.
