Fun Friday - Coloring with Michelle Houghton, Certified Copic Instructor

Youtube has a lot of information available to us as crafters. 

One of the many videos you can find is Copic Coloring.  
Michelle Houghton, a certified Copic Instructor, has been teaching classes for sometime. 
Click here to see Michelle's blog called, Scrapweaver. 

We would like to share a video she shared on Youtube, teaching basic Copic Blending, hoping this would inspire you to color up this image too!

Here is the image called, Comfy Cocoa, that Michelle Houghton will be using in her video.
