Copic Coloring Canvo For Bullet Journalers with Technique Tuesday Poinsettia

Hey folks!

In today's video I'm going to talk about Copic Coloring in the Canvo for Bullet Journalers by Catherine Pooler Designs! I'm also going to share the lovely Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society Poinsettia Stamp. You aren't going to wanna miss today's video folks. It has some valuable info on using the proper paper with Copic's!

BULLET JOURNALING was created by Ryder Caroll. He created this system with simply a notebook and a pen. Before long, it became widely popular and folks all over the world took its methodology and made it their own. At the very core of Bullet Journaling it values form over function. It's a great system, but what about stampers? Where do we fit in?

Gotta be honest folks, I'm not an expert in BULLET JOURNALING. I do keep a notebook that has a very stripped down version of it, but it's very utilitarian. I do however, love the idea of keeping a book that allows me to meet form, function, and meets my creative need. Enter the CANVO.

If you would like to learn more about Bullet Journaling be sure to read THE BULLET JOURNAL METHOD by Ryder Carroll and also check out BULLETJOURNAL.COM. They are both valuable resources and TBJM was an excellent read. I learned a ton about bullet journaling.

So what is the CANVO? The Canvo is a spin on The Bullet Journal. However it's a place to stay organized, but it's also for stampers. It's part canvas, part journal. It has heavy weight paper to prevent bleed through from inks and water based markers, but what about Copic's?

At the end of the day, I'm a colorist folks. I use my markers and pencils and I make pretty things. I want to be able to to do the same in the CANVO

So that's what I'm taking a look at in today's VIDEO. I'm also sharing this darling stamp by Technique Tuesday. This is the Greenhouse Society November 2018 Poinsettia Stamp folks. I love it to pieces. I know I shared a poinsettia last week, but I thought this stamp was a perfect addition to my December spread in my CANVO.

I don't walk you through how I color in the POINSETTIA Stamp folks. I shared a VIDEO last week where I color in the Power Poppy POINSETTIA AND POMEGRANATES Digital Stamp. I color this one the same way, but the only difference is, I didn't use BV23 on the poinsettia and I also didn't use B34 on the leaves. Underpainting can make a huge difference in your coloring folks, but I also wanted to see what kind of pigment saturation I was going to get with my colored pencils.

While we're talking about the CANVO today, the information I give you in the VIDEO is important to know, no matter what paper you use with Copic Markers and colored pencils so do be sure to watch it. I give you the cliff notes version, but it's a great start to what you need to keep in mind.

I did notice some subtle things coloring in the CANVO with my markers. Are they a deterrent from coloring in it going forward. Nope. Overall, I really like it, which is awesome sauce cause I really like the CANVO. Again, check out the VIDEO folks because I go over my observations and my thoughts on it.

I also talk about coloring with colored pencils. I use PRISMACOLOR almost exclusively, regardless of paper or project but for this image I did use the Caran d'Ache Pablo WHITE in this paper and I really love it! 

Also! Be sure to check out the other PRODUCTS Catherine has that coordinate with the CANVO folks!
