Here's My Space this Week and I've been working on an ATC that a request remake it is like the fish that I can't part with under the Precut ATC's .  Seriously that show off on the right has been getting a little funky these days lol.  So my Giveaway is on the go if I make top 3 then one lucky person will be getting my silverback gorilla.  Yah please go over and help me out by voting on facebook Link in sidebar or in the post below. The 28th is my BD so I plan on eating some ice cream and cake lol 
My Sister sent me a whole box filled with goodness too for my BD and she was kind to cut me all those ATC's out now they are ready to be coloured on !!

Now for some of you might think I'm a little crazy but I really like to have things put in small spaces so I did what most would never do
There is over 120 Different types of Washi some full-ish rolls
YEP I took them off their rolls and put them in on heavy paper covered in packing tape 
now they take up next to no space and I have room for more. Funny how much more space there and the DH thinks it's not that bad now lol
this way takes up no space and is easier to find a type too

Happy Mail

Use your own Hand writing this challenge at Incy Wincy we have Rick St James as a sponsor I love working with his images they are fun to colour I did slightly alter this image by erasing out the US Mail , I live in Canada so thought it a touch odd for me to have that on my Happy mail card seeing I'll be sending it out as Happy Mail lol
This has been Coloured with Watercolours and for those that don't think yo can colour a digi with watercolours you can you just have to do light washes and slowly build up the colour and avoid smearing the Black ink lines so it does take a little time to do but it is do-able.

Review for WaterColour Pencils on Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth Mondeluz

I now have the 36 Watercolour Pencil Set from Koh-I-Noor Hartmuth Mondeluz. Love them
They are designed with those that like things in order and are easy to figure out which colour is which. Seeing the outside matches the colour your using , no looking at the tip to figure it out just grab pencil and get to colouring. They are also only sold in a tin which is great for those that like to have them all laid out in front of you. They are also Numbered 1-36, On the back the actual colour name. No guessing or making up your own. They are sold in sets up to 72 have a

So below is just a quick view of the colours in the set I own. The left side is just pencil untouched and a paintbrush over the right you can see how lovely these colours are and they are nice and translucent they can get when you drag your brush away.
I've just drawn up a little rose and used a few colours on 140 lb paper,  I coloured them all on dry paper just like I would if I was using pencil crayon, but I've done them very soft in some areas to get highlights showing up.

1st Picture is just a quick  sketch drawn out with the watercolour pencils just roughly shading
2nd Picture it me going over it quickly blending the watercolours together and then leaving it to dry
3rd Picture I am gone over it more with the pencils then blended it down I stopped here but you could go a lot further with it making it have very deep shades
So far I'm loving using these they are so great for colouring by the tv just grab and paint little works of art.

When it comes to blending these pencils with enough water they blend super easy and you can fade really quick by just pulling the colours across, and using a little extra water.
When adding water the Pigment becomes really vibrant my pictures just do not do them justice

On the Negative side of owning these I haven't found a close art store that sells any open stock so I would have to buy a set which will get a little crazy for those colours I don't use a lot. Plus the pricing varies a lot and my set choices I'm stuck to Ebay or Amazon to find larger sets.

This review is my own
I just thought I'd share what I use with you all
