jan's stash

jan has a nice stash of art supplies. she knows i like adding water to g-tec to dissolve it, so she brought 3 different add-water supplies for me to try. the top one is caran d'ache neocolor II water soluble wax pastels. i only tried this one envelope and they were fun. i tend to go for more detail, but, if i had time, i bet i could come up with some interesting techniques.

the bottom one is portfolis series water soluble oil pastels, by crayola. they were cheaper than the above product and we noticed that the color of the more expensive one was more intense. the bottom one comes in a set of 10. the top one comes in a gazillion colors.

these were fun, but the third item she brought -inktense pencils- were the big winner. i already knew i loved them. that envelope will get it's own blog post.

thanks to mississippi-cathy who sent me these stamps. i would not have bought them because they did not intrigue me, but after i had them in front of me, i really enjoyed experimenting with the colors. i thought they were very pretty with these two.
