La La Land's Copic Marker Storage


Have you seen the fabulous new marker kits for sale at La La Land Crafts??? If you haven't you can check out the different designs for different markers HERE

The one I have is the Sketch Holder Kit but it also holds Ciaos if you're like me and have a mix of markers. The kits comes flat packed and is made from pale card, but due to the fabulous design it is ultra sturdy when it's put together. The pale card also takes colour really nicely if you want to doll it up a little. Irina has put together a Youtube video of the assembly for you HERE.

I decided I wanted to make mine look like it has been sitting around for years and made from aged wood so I went back in time to my faux wood tutorial HERE - although with the cream base of the card I needed to swipe a heavier base of SU More Mustard on at the start.

The decorative pieces were simply swiped with dark brown ink and then glazed before attaching. If you do this gently on the LLLC badge pieces the detail will pop out - just be careful not to be too heavy handed or the ink will settle into the grooves and make the design disappear.
