It has been a while since I did a video, and I was feeling the itch! This week it’s a short and sweet instructional on how to draw bubbles in water using Copic markers.

Last weekend we (Hubby and I) took an amazing trip to celebrate our anniversary early.

As I have recently delved into this world, I completely understand the draw (see my first two posts about my Copic… Continue reading First Impressions: Winsor & Newton Markers
