    Fabulous first issue Carisa, I personally loved seeing images that I love to colour featured, and also card makers who’s blogs I already love to look at.
    Keep up the great work.

    Gorgeous magazine, Carisa! Love It! I REALLY loved the specific colors used for the images! And I loved the demo of the different gray families.

    I love it, very nice, and will love to have the magaszine

  • 16. Diane Dong  |  February 2, 2012 at 11:01 am

    I love EVERYTHING about this magazine – I love all the ideas and creativity – they show in each and every page! Thank you for sharing what colors you used. The markers are very expensive and while I try to buy what I can with coupons at Michaels, there are more they don’t have. This will help me narrow down what I buy elsewhere.

  • 17. Jessica Fitzgerald  |  February 2, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    I loved the first issue and I really like how you showed the Copic numbers. The tutorial about the different grays was great too. HUGS.

    already following on FB and the blog ….. but I don’t twitter .. (not even really sure what that is LOL). and just learnt what the ISSU thingy is … so have subscribed there.

    Loving this first issue! So glad I have a coloured printer so I can print it out … but would totally adore a real life hard copy!!!!!! WOW!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

    You should be very proud of yourselves, the issue was chuck full of great inspiration and my favorite parts were the promarker sample of Vanessa by Coops and the little ditty by Krista on the back cover with the over hanging postage. I love the idea of handmade flowers for the next issue along with coloring tutorials. I’ve just begun trying out the colored pencil and water color mediums so if you can get them in as well as Copic and promarker it would be fabulous! Thanks again and I’m excited to see the next issue and would love to get a copy of the first signed by Krista, what a treasure that would be!

    I love the concept of this magazine; thanks for putting it together. I look forward to the tutorials and just all about it. Loving that the colors are shared and also that it is a coloring magazine not specific to medium. I would love to see a high contrast DI coloring tutorial:0)
