Copic Hair Color 1...

Hey everyone Heather here from Heather's Hobbie Haven.
I'm sure you've seen my color swatches floating around on Pinterest.
Well Christine tracked me down 
and asked if I could do some Copic Marker color swatches for The Paper Nest Blog using her paper dolls. And here I am.

I Updated Both Avery Color Sheets.
She is now Larger and can be cut to fit 3 x 4 Snap Pockets!
Yes I colored up a sheet of the others and cut part of her hair off so had to revamp.

I currently keep my color swatches in a Sn@p Album.
That way I can move them around
and keep all the same hair colors together.
I'm OCD about it.
Or you could also cut the page into 6 and use a ring in the corner to hold it together.
Or keep the pages in a 3 ring binder.
It's totally up to you.

Since I'm blonde I thought our very first hair color could be to.
I color from dark to light, but if you color from light to dark that's great to.
Just reverse the color order.

The order I colored her hair:


I hope you enjoy making your very own swatches with me.
If you have a favorite hair color feel free to share it.
I can always use more colors.

Thanks for joining me today.
I'll see you again next Tuesday.
Have a fabulous day!
