GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. First – let me show you some fun with color – swatching out the watercolor and watercolor pencil sets that Altenew sent me in advance of the bloghop coming up on the 11th!

The watercolor pencils are pretty awesome; they melt SO WELL. I wasn’t expecting that! It usually takes a high end pencil to do that, but Altenew nailed it. Plus they’re woodless – meaning the whole “stick” is pigment, not wood with a thin bit of lead in the middle! If only these were in “my” colors…..but I know for lots of you, bright is the only way to go!

Similarly – the watercolors are a little bright for me. I’m much more into neutrals and transparency, but these are pretty sweet for crafters wanting some beautiful splashes of rainbow color!
