In Jennifer Stay’s 2nd Sharpie Coloring Secrets video, she demonstrates shading with texture. (If you didn’t see Part 1, go HERE.)
With 3 simple strokes – stippling, cross hatching, and one I’d never seen before, you can add a lot of dimension to your coloring pages! (I’ll let you discover the 3rd stroke on her 5 1/2 minute video.)
You may be thinking, “I can’t use markers very well and besides, if I mess up, it will look horrible!”
That was my thought until I saw Part 2 of Jennifer’s series where I learned several ‘tricks’ and was inspired to have some fun and try!
I’d like to encourage you as well to play and experiment with Sharpies! Don’t let your Worry Bone have its way!
I tried my hand at these techniques of shading with texture and you can see the first 2 of them below.
You can get Sharpie markers just about anywhere, but I found 4 different packs I thought were cool at Amazon (via my affiliate links) that are pretty reasonably priced. Check them out below:

Again, if you didn’t see the 1st video in Jennifer’s series, you can find it HERE.
Here’s to more coloring and creating!
