Hi everyone, I'm back again for the second post of the day. Today is going to be a busy today here at the blog as I'm not done yet. After you read this post be sure to come back later this morning for a post using and I Brake For Stamps image! But, for now, onto my MarkerPop post for today.
Today I have a tip for you on how to color folds. I love coloring folds. I think they are so satisfying as you immediately see the results of shading and coloring those darks and lights so close to one another. I know folds can be hard for us sometimes, so I have a few pictures to show you how I do it. I always start with the dark part of the fold and work my way out from there. I lay down a light layer of color first and then I go back over a second time to blend those colors they way I like. Sometimes my markers are stubborn and I may have to use a few of my colors a third time, but that's when you have to be careful that you work lightly so your marker doesn't bleed to other parts of your image. I always color a small part of my image at a time as I find it easier to blend the colors this way. Today I am using the Saturated Canary Rubber Stamp Nevaeh as I think her skirt has the most fabulous folds to color. The copic marker colors I used on her skirt are R59, R46, R43, RV21.
Here is what she looked like when I was completely finished coloring the image.
The other colors I used on my image are hair and skin: E39, YR27, Y23, YR20, E11, YR01, E01, E000, E0000 and clothes: YR24, YRY38, Y35, Y32, YR30, YR18, R05, R02, R00, G28, G46, G43, G40, C7, C5, C3, C1.
I played around a little with my colors on this one and combined some colors and shades I may not have tried in the past. You can see this better when you look at my project below.

Well, that's it for me today. I think I am going to soak up the sun a little today, I believe it is supposed to be gone by tomorrow!
