Copic Colouring "Textured" Jeans - A Video Tutorial


When I colour jeans with my Copic Markers, I like to add some texture using Holtz Copic Activator and a scrap of old denim cloth.  I've made a video showing how I do this.

If you don't have any Holtz Copic Activator, you can use Colourless Blender Refill Fluid or Copic Cleaner Fluid in a Mini Mister instead.

I used this image to make a note book using my We R Memory Keepers Cinch.

The image is from Saturated Canary and is called "Love Letters".  Here's a close up of the finished image:

List of Copics Used:

Skin - E21, E0000, E000, E00 R20
Lips - R22
Eyes - B34
Hair - E31, E34, E37
Top - R22, R24, C2, C0 and Colourless Blender
Jeans - B91, B93, B95 and B97
Envelope - W1 and R22

The other items used on this project are:

Cinch Binding Machine
Cinch 0.75 inch O-Wire
Cinch Book Boards
Xyron Creative Station Adhesive
Papers and Card from my stash
Charm, Chain, Mini Bulldog Clip, Bakers Twine and Ribbon from my stash
Tabs and Book Plate cut using my Silhouette

I'm entering this book into the following challenges:

Saturated Canary Challenge - Twine
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge - Let's Get Digital
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Red, White & Blue
2 Sisters Challenge - Spots and Dots

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you found my video helpful.
