Ebay Haul With My Assistant and Swatches of Jane Davenport, Tombow and Prismacolor

Hello fellow Alchemists,

It’s another haul video! This haul is from my favourite eBay seller from Canada. Prices have gone up since I purchased from her (I think I got lucky with the Jane Davenport Paints) but I got some super bargains. In fact I am in the process of doing a new order… The other two paint tins and some Happy Planner sticker which are super expensive over here.

Almost everything was swatched by my lovely assistant, she was defeated by the Mermaid Markers though. To be honest I do think there is a learning curve with them. The Brights watercolor set exceeded my expectations when it came to pigment load. They are so vibrant and pretty. Jane’s website does list the pigment information too. The sparkle pens are gorgeous both light and dark papers and I can’t wait to try out the face stamps and decorate my butterfly effect cover .

The Prima Art Alchemy Rose Gold was gorgeous. More research is needed on how to use the two Antique brilliance waxes as I am unsure how to use them or why my Amethyst is weird. The antiquing medium and the amethyst colour seems to have separated and everything is just brown. Although the Opal Magic is very light it is super pretty over dark surfaces to give a hint of shine.

As for the Prismacolor Premier and the Tombow Galaxy Markers the Jury is out. I wanted to try the pencils for the blending capabilities but I have no idea how to get the nice smooth blends. Due to my arthritis a lot of intensive colouring can become a problem so we will see how it goes. Unless I can get the hand letting aspect down the Tombows may be pointless. I have many other mediums that can do the same thing with colouring.

Ok I have been wordy enough for today. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemists yourselves. See you next time.

Things My Mum Gives Me

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today’s video is a bunch of stuff my mum gave to me. My mum is helping a lady clear her house out because she has to move into a home for the elderly and needs to cull most of her things. So some stuff has come from that. Some stuff is just mums accumulated stuff from years of making things lol.

There is lot’s of bits of everything! Mont Marte acrylic and watercolour paints, ribbons, laces, lots and lots of laces! Patterned papers from Kaisercraft, Graphic 45, Close To My Heart, My Reflections and Carolee’s Creations. There are bells and flowers too. So many things lol.

There is another bunch of stuff sitting here waiting to be filmed. A whole shopping bag of materials, 5 or 6 times more lace than was in this video and other cool things. It will probably be a while before you see that video though as I have a lot of vids already filmed I need to edit. Editing has become the bane of my existence! It’s used to be house work haha, I think maybe that’s second now lol.

There has been some things going on behind the scenes so I am sorry for my erratic posting. I am trying to get o top of things but it may take a little while so bare with me. Apart from the personal stuff YouTube is hard work! Why does no one tell you this? Bye for now.
