Acrylic paints, Twinkling and Washi tape

Look at my new art goodies!


I haven't worked with watercolors in the longest time, because I like the acrylics characteristic that they are pretty firm on the paper and won't run after I'm finished, but this H2O's are so gorgeous I can't resist.... This is the Think Pink set. Expect images soon ;o)

I am also trying the Martha Stewart paints. They seem rich and creamy and obviously they are for small projects since they would be very expensive for a larger piece compared to the price and amount for a jar of other brands, but they will be fine for ACEOs or art journaling. One little thing I do not like much is the hole to dispense paint... too narrow! I know it will be clogged, but hey, we can always open the bottle right?
I selected very soft hues, unlike my typical strong screaming favorite colors haha

Oh and the washi tape! I had been resisting it for a long time. I even told Jane Coquillon I wasn't going to get any.... but they are so cute! I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, except taping envelops in a fancy way lol I don't want to cover them with paint, they are just too pretty!

And as per my resolutions and word of the year... I am working on a new class. Basic face in Color. For those that have taking the class, this is a continuation Part II of the Basic Face class, but can be taken independently. Not sure when I'll be done with taping and editing since 29 faces is around the corner and it gets really busy the first 2 weeks, but I'm actively working on it, and can't wait for the February Challenge! ♥

I hope everyone is safe in this crazy weather, some too cold, some too hot, here is was terribly windy for a couple of days up to 45 MPH and dusty.

Thanks for visiting and Keep creating!

  4. Never had heard of Washi tapes... Of course now I want them LOL! Don't you love new supplies to play with :)

  5. Have fun with your new paints :) Washi tape is cool but I haven't used it yet!

  6. New paint and washi tape, very cool and exciting! Can't wait to see what you make ;o)

  7. How funny, I actually really like the Martha Stewart paint bottles because I prefer the smaller hole! I guess there's no pleasing all of us :)

    I've found the sparkling H2Os add a nice touch to watercolor painting and are pretty easy to use.

    1. Now, that is funny! And you are totally right! lol

  8. Yay! Bring on the Faces II. im having fun discovering my style in Faces I.
