Win a SOLO live video colouring session with Me!

Zoe July 8, 2011 33

Hi Everyone,

I am constantly being asked when I will have another live colouring video session and just the other day whilst I was thinking about what I could give away this monthΒ  that you might want… (because nothing is ever pre-planned in my world) The idea of offering a one on one colouring session came across my mind. After pondering on it for a while, I thought ‘Why not??” πŸ™‚

I know there will be some people who may not be able to do live video, so please accept my apologies, however with many of you living on the other side of the world somewhere it is a little difficult to turn up on your doorstep. hahaha

The live video session would take place via SKYPE, so you would need to have a computer and at lease a microphone and speakers/headset. Ideally you would have a webcam so that I can see your colouring and help with any pointers if necessary.

Being a one on one session, you’ll be able to ask me ANYTHING to do with colouring that you like and I will try my best to show you how I would do it. Don’t freak me out with really hard questions though!! hahaha

I will arrange a time with the winner that will hopefully suit both of us and wont have me crawling out of bed at 5am. πŸ™‚

This is open to anyone! However, obviously I am English speaking so if English is not your spoken language BUT you can understand English you are still welcome to enter! We will find a way around it if you have questions. πŸ™‚


It’s easy to enter!

Leave me a comment below and tell me why you would like win!!


I haven’t decided how I will choose a winner yet, but you have until July 22nd to leave your comment!!


I am a little bit excited! It will be fun to chat and colour with you one on one. πŸ™‚


Big Aussie Squeezes!!

Would luv to have a solo session with you. I do have skype, a webcam and mic so that’s not a problem at all. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! Will be keeping my fingers and toes crossed. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

    I would love to have the video as I dont know how to use my 260 copics in nice colorings… So frustrating that I cant find any classes in Singapore.
    Anyway I am always on your blogs looking at the tutorials, but a video is fantastic!

    OH!! You totally HAVE TO pick me!!! OK, well you don’t have to, but you should, lol!! I love, love, love my Copics and I’ve practiced tons but I’m still not blending as well as I’ve seen others do. I also would love to be able to make more realistic hair as well. Plus I’m in Italy (American military family) so we’re in the same time zone.

    Pretty please with sprinkles on top, pick me!!!!!

    Wow what amazing opportunity you’re offering Zoe. To be able to colour to your standard would be fabulous and the best way to learn is from the master herself!!!

    I have SKYPE plus all the other bits and bobs needed – including Copics of course LOL!!!

    Thanks for the chance.

    Ohhhh ! Pick me Pick me Pick me !!

    I need an input of Zoetoonesselfness to encourage me to love my markers again, we keep falling out over bleeding issues and I have now *hangs in head shame* moved over to the dark side almost totally and can be found leaving the markers to socialise with the dust bunnies while I be at one with a multitude of pencils, stumps and blending fluid.. such is the breakdown in our relationship that its been weeks since I last bought any new colours….. I am such a bad bad girl…

    What a fantastic idea Zoe! I’d love to win the session because I LOVE your accent! I could listen to Aussies all day! And of course I could use some pointers from you … you are an amazing artist! I’ve watched, and learned, from all your videos and visit your blog every day. I have Skype and all the bits so no problem there. I’m in Munich Germany (American expat).

    I’m always checking blogs where crafters are using copic markers because I think this is a beautiful technique, however I’ve never had the courage to give it a try. I always it’s such an investment to make and I’m not sure I’d be any good at it. Maybe if I were to win and got some pointers from you I’d be on my way to a whole new way of crafting. Thanks for the chance to win.

    OMG!!! I would LOVE to win a coloring session with you. I love my copic markers, and would love to learn how you do your pleating. I think your coloring is amazing, and I would love to learn some techniques from you. Your style is unique to you, and is totally amazing everytime. It would be a thrill to take a special class from you, and I would be so excited to win such an amazing opportunity. Thanks so much for your generosity and the chance to win.

    It would be so awesome to win a colouring session! I can blend colours pretty good but highlighting just eludes me! If I SEE something coloured I can copy it but I can’t do it by myself I would LOVE instructions on how to highlight! What an incredible gift, good luck to everyone!

    wow what a great opportunity! I would love to win because I think your colouring is some of the best I have seen. I am amzed at the depth you achieve and it would be wonderful to get the chance to discuss this and get hints and tips on how to improve

    WOW to have a one on one session… if I was lucky enough to win I think a trip to Oz would be in order, what better excuse to pop across the ditch… just the thought of being there in person blows my mind. Copics, pencils ,papers ooooh tuition…so many questions. At the end of the day I am just so thankful that I found your blog/store in the first place, you have already inspired me to try allsorts with both copics and pencils and every new creation you make lights yet another spark of enthusiasm. Thanks so much for everything you do

    What a great prize. You are super talented and color so beautifully. I have skype and would be able to participate. I would love to be able to color one tenth of how beautifully you do. I own all copic colors and have no clue how to use them. This would be such a wonderful opportunity. Again, awesome prize.

    This is a cool contest! I don’t have any Copics yet, but I do have colored pencils and blender pens. Sounds like fun!

    You are so generous, I know the winner will be over the moon. I will pass on the one-on-one, but if I can give my entry to a blogland friend, put in another entry for Penni from England.

    WOW!! This would be so helpful for me. I have a few copics but would love to learn how to. I have only colored a few digis. So Hoping to win. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway. Kim xx

    This prize would be absolutley invaluable! A on-on-one clas with an expert! In classes you have to share the instructer and online videos are one way only. You invariably end up with more questions and end up feeling frustrated. A personal class would resolve all those issues. Thanks for offering this wonderful opportunity. What a unique opportunity for the lucky winner.

    Wow Zoe, what a really really cool giveaway. I think this is the best and kindess one I have ever seen. I would love to win so I can get help with my copic coloring, and also get some pointers of the best colors to get as I continue to add to my collection:) . I also think it would be super cool to be able to have a one on one tutoring session with YOU. I have always admired your work, always flawless and so inspiring. I am totally keeping my fingers crossed on this one:) Thank you for the chance to win such a thoughtful giveaway.

    Hi Zoe .. unfortunately I don’t have Skype … but I’m so in love with your blog! Just wanted to let you know that I’m now a follower and will be certainly looking forward to further posts. Also about to check out what you have for sale. I’m in Australia so it works out perfect πŸ™‚
    I don’t even know what Skype is … he he he … will have to google that one.

    Zoe, your coloring is SO much better than I am, and fear you would be to busy laughing at me,but thought I would put in for it anyway. I think your creations are just amazing, and love looking around you blog. Whoever does win this prize is going to be one very lucky crafter.

    I would LOVE to learn from you via video. My husband and I went to an Anime convention on our honeymoon (yeah, we’re geeks), and I LOVE the effect of these markers, but I don’t know where to go to learn to use them. My dream is to be able to draw us as Anime characters someday and then color it in and give it to my hubby for our anniversary!
