Tree of Life

For my in-laws’ 25th wedding anniversary, my sister-in-law wanted to spend almost $100 on an Etsy “Tree of Life” sign-in book for the attendees. I told her to save her money and I’d make one myself using my new-found talents with Copics! :-p

I originally thought I would color this with the earth-tone colors but after I did my original sketch in pencil and then outlined it via a light-box with various Copic Multiliners, I think I liked it just plain like that.

The idea of a Fingerprint tree is that all attendees add their fingerprint with ink and then sign it. That way, you have a unique sign-in book with every person’s unique mark.

My mother-in-law came over today and picked it up, she’s really excited to get it framed. 🙂


  • Copic 1, 0.5 and 0.3 multilines
