Today the Copic Instructors in the US and Australia are doing a Blog Hop!!!

We are excited to announce that Marianne Walker's new book called Shadows and Shading is now available.

This Shadows and Shading Book is designed for people who want to understand the basic rules of light when colouring, whether they draw their own art or not!

This beginner's guide covers many kinds of light, the differences between shading and cast shadows, how to colour a variety of objects, and shadow colour theory.

Designed for beginners, either papercrafters or artists - this is a wire-bound book that comes with 4 clear printed guides to help you add shadows properly on your own work.

DDH Blog hop

Today, we are hopping with Digi Design House, and our theme is Follow Your Dreams. I am so honored to be part of the team as the Guest Designer.

Today is our DEBUT BLOG HOP for the shiny brand new Digi Design House Dream Team. Since this is our debut hop, we want to take a minute to tell a little about ourselves, so you get to know us, and we get to know each other, a little better.

So, my name is Mandi-Lee. I am the creative designer for an Australian & NZ web based business, freelance graphic designer and qualified art teacher. I am a Copic Certified Designer and the only Copic Regional Instructor in Australia able to teach both standard and intermediate Copic Certification Courses. I am an avid scrapbooker, stamper and lover of Copic Markers. I am a stamp designer for Kaiser Craft, and am a published designer, having had work published in Australian Simply Cards Magazine and Scrapbook Creations magazine.

If you came here from Hannah Clarke's blog, you're right on track. If not, you'll want to start at the DDH Blog. Be sure to leave some love on each blog, because there is FREE STUFF up for grabs! Three mystery Design Team members will be giving away the Cool Chicks set from Digi Design House to a random commenter on their blog post. You have until 6:00PM CST on Thursday, March 3 to comment. At 6:01PM, the number of comments will be tallied, and the random number generator will do its magic to pick the winner.

You don't know which team members have the candy, so make sure you comment on EACH stop in the hop. Additionally, all of the names of our faithful (those of you who comment on EVERY stop on the hop) will be put in a hat to draw an additional set! Oh yes, we are giving away FOUR FREE STAMP SETS!

So now for my card.....

Align Center
My style is very much "less is more", and I really like to focus on the colouring if my image. So this beautiful creature who is following his dream down stream is coloured with Copics and glittered with Spica!

Thank you for stopping by! Your next stop is over to see what Michelle's dreams are ... Enjoy!

Happy Colouring.....Mandi-Lee
