Copic Journal

Make sure you take a minute to check out my BLOG CANDY!  It's available until March 3rd!

Ever since I bought my first Copic Markers, I've wanted to put together a Copic Journal.  A place where I can record colour combinations I like and my thoughts on different papers.  There is just so much to learn about Copics, I want to record what I'm learning!  I also love the idea of decorating a notebook.  I've never done it before!  I found this notebook at Staples, and I liked the thick covers.  Perfect for decorating!  I used my favourite Basic Grey paper, sponging the edges with ink.  For the main decorative element, I used my Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals Die, embellishing with a Stampin' Up button.  For added detail, I used a White Gel Pen on the edges of the flowers and to make a flourish.  The matching pen was made using the SCS Tutorial - Beaded Pens.

Have a wonderful day!

What a fun idea. my problem is that I always forget the good color combos for things like hair. I need to make a journal, too!

Hannah, this is so pretty and what a fun idea! Love the white on the petals and the fun ribbon trim. I'm sure there will be some amazing ideas in that journal, too. You rock with the Copics! :)
