It's Kelly here and today I'm sharing a video on how I make pattern paper work for me.
If you are familiar with my projects it's no great secret that I don't use a ton of pattern paper. Usually, I'm happy to create my own patterns and shade them how I want. However, sometimes paper comes along that is so pretty I want to find a way to use it. These are the papers from the Snow Dance kit :)
I often feel that pattern paper can make my card flat and I love the dimension created from coloring. I've made a video for you showing how I use Copic Markers to get some shading on my pattern paper pieces. (Say that three times fast ;)
If you don't have a lot of Copic Markers or can't afford a ton the gray markers are a great investment. You can shade almost anything with them! No copics? Use distress ink and a blending tool to get a similar look :)
Thanks so much for dropping by!
