Handmade Copic Cubbie!

Hello Crafty friends!
Lately I was really getting annoyed with my current Copic holder aka ( The wicker basket I kept them in) so I decided to make a better solution for myself that would be inexpensive. I kept a large shoe box I had recently acquired and made that the base of my Copic cubbie.
                            I love having my Copic Sketch markers organized by color family.     

I used quite a bit of Washi tape to reinforce the sides and inside shelves. The Shelves themselves are about 4x4 and where cut from heavy weight cardstock. I covered the outside of the box with cardstock designed by Donna Salazar.
 Some of my shelves were sprayed with Glimmer mist on the inside to add some quick color! I actually really love how it turned out so far and I hope you feel inspired to make your own version ? Please feel free to let me know if you need any tips or if you decide to make one ( I'd love to see it) .

                                     Crafty Hugs!

Mixed Media Art Journal "Embrace" Pages

These Mixed Media pages are called "Embrace". I have my art doodles throughout the pages and some stamping.I really enjoyed layering vintage book pages to my background with (Soft Gel Medium) to add texture.
I used a black sharpie and Copic Multi- liner  to draw my art doodles and add small details.
I created that tab with some vintage rubber stamps which I stamped in Memento (Rose bud and Bahama Blue). The twenty-six I created with some saved chain in my stash which was inspired by my recent birthday.( Below is Pt.2 of the video showing me creating these pages to see Pt.1 Click Here.)
