MY EXPERIMENT WITH PLEATS FOR JUST SOME LINES POST

I’m back again today with my JUST SOME LINES BLOG post.  As you know, I have been practicing using my Copics quite a bit lately and trying to learn how to do some new stuff.   I have been working a lot with coloring hair - experimenting with different color combos and also getting it to look like strands rather than helmet head.  There are a wealth of amazing tutorials on You Tube for Copic coloring techniques.

I also decided that I want to learn how to do pleats on a dress that doesn't have pleats and found a wonderful video by Colleen Schaan that provides very clear instruction on how to accomplish this.  I have used this technique to color Emo Amber Prays from JUST SOME LINES SHOP.  I would love to know what you think.  Here is the image

And here she is colored with pleats added to her dress.

I have used markers BG 11, 13, 15 and 49 for her dress and pleats.  Papers are Bazzill CS, Basic Grey and Creative Imaginations DP.  Sentiment is from Verve and cut with Nellie's die, Doodlebug twine added.  Ribbon is from my stash, buttons from Bag O' Buttons, circle cut with Nellie's die and image and background cut with Nesties.  Hope you like it!
