Prima Confections Vintage Pastels Palette
I stumbled on this Prima Confections Vintage Pastels pan set while browsing Instagram, and I’m usually not a fan of purchasing sets like these, but the colors seemed interesting, so I decided to try them out.
I can’t speak for the quality of these paints since there’s not a lot of information provided about them regarding lightfastness or other important watercolor characteristics, but the colors are pretty and might be worth trying if you’re looking for something different and fun. I included the swatches that I painted so you can take a look at the colors. The swatch card is provided with the set.
Case for Making supplies
These are some supplies that I got just for fun.
The first one is the Wills Watercolor Palette. I love handmade ceramic palettes and have been eyeing this one for quite a while, so I decided to go ahead and purchase one. I love the size (~3.25 x 4 in.) and it’s perfect to keep on my desk for quick mixing.
The Tiny Paper for Watercolor also looked fun, so I decided to pick one up since I was paying for shipping anyway. I think I might paint a little miniature series on these and frame them together for my office :)
Zebra Mildliner Double-Sided Highlighter
Since I started bullet journaling, I’ve been looking for some highlighter pens that are light and transparent, and I stumbled on these Zebra Mildliners. They have a bunch of color options - I went with the “Noble” set on Amazon, but you can find more options on JetPens.com. They’re perfect for highlighting or adding other accents to your planner or notes. I also love that they’re double-sided.
I included a quick little swatch so you can see the two different points and colors in this set. If you check them out, let me know what you think!
Since getting them, I’ve been using them for my everyday writing and notes, and I really like them! The point is super fine and they write really smoothly. They also seem to dry quicker than other ink pens I’ve used (yay for less smearing!). The only downside to these are that they don’t seem to be waterproof.
See below for a few doodles and a quick water test on these pens.
