I hope everyone had a great time for the holidays, whichever you celebrate! I was lucky enough to receive some fabulous art supplies that I had on my wish-list. Ever since I started watching art journaling videos on youtube, I've been so curious about the Faber Castell Gelatos. I got a beautiful set! How gorgeous is this box? They are water based gel-ish sticks. It very much feels like drawing with lipstick. The set came with metallics as well! You can blend them in their creamy form or add water. This box also has a few blending tools as well as a water brush like this one. I also happily received these super fun Caran d'Ache Neocolor II water-soluble color sticks. They are water-soluble crayons. I love them. I had a little bit of time to play with my new pretties and here is what I did. The last 5 days I was impromptu house-sitting, so I've been away from my studio. I'm so excited to really get my hands messy with these beautiful new sticks!
I have a lot of fun plans for my blog and my YouTube channel for the new year! Thank you to everyone that hangs out in my little corner of the internet. I appreciate every one of you! I wish you all a wonderful and safe new year!
Happy arting! xx
