And before we get onto this tutorial, the winner from Kate's Colourless Blender Tutorial was Alshandra, congrats A.... please email Sascha to claim your free journal.
For a different look, you can use your blender solution and a variety of different materials to create texture. For the first one, I've coloured the circle, dampened a piece of Aida Cloth with Colourless Blender and pressed it to the circle. For the other circles, I've used Denim, a Washcloth and a piece of Hessian (also known as Burlap in some parts of the world).
You can then stamp directly into your X-press It Copic Journal (since all the pages are the X-press It Blending Card which is perfect for colouring), and colour examples of your techniques! Above I've created Pebbles under the bucket, a Fluffy Chicken (the dotted on fur technique) and a Wooden Fence.
You can read more about textures in these tutorials...

Happy Colouring... and we will see you all in two weeks time to announce our winner, and start the next phase of our Copic journey!
