Hi everyone! Seems like it has been a while since my last post. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a very busy time for Stamp to Cope! Our congratulations to all survivors and supporters...this month is a celebration of Life!!! So far, STC has conducted three workshops, participated in a community service (handed out 400 flyers) and will have a table at Women's Wellness Day on October 27th at EKU. Clearly a special time for outreach.
Speaking of outreach, STC continues to brainstorm fundraising and community awareness options. One approach we are trying is to provide a wider range of workshops for the overall crafting audience that would be fee based (survivors could attend for free). Based on research, we found that two interest areas were growing in this area...Scrapbooking and Copic Marker use. So, this month I participated in a Spotted Canary Instructor Certification through Scrapbook Design University and Copic Designer training at the standard and intermediate level. Word is spreading fast and I have already been approached to put together a workshop for a local crafting group on basic Copic coloring. We are so excited about the additional fundraising and community awareness potential these new certifications may bring.
Wanted to take this blog opportunity to share a few of the Copic projects completed during training...
These pictures focused on faces and radiant light techniques
This image bring in light placement, shading, and depth techniques.
Watch for future projects that incorporate scrapbook design and Copic coloring techniques. Thank you for your continued support of our mission. If you or your organization would be interesting in a workshop, please let us know. Enjoy the Fall weather.
