A few weeks ago I received a message from Caroline, offering to send me some Daniel Smith paint for reviewing and making a video. She had seven vials for me to fill up. I was over the moon! Testing paint from a dot sampler was a wonderful way of creating a gorgeous real color chart. But some of the paints were hard to pick up and I got so many people saying the paint looked more vibrant and deep from the tubes that it did get me curious to try…

Caroline’s parcel with Daniel Smith watercolor paints

A week and a half ago Caroline’s lovely package arrived…she’d filled up seven vials with lots and lots of gorgeous paint and had even added a full tube and half a watercolor stick to try…and then I’m not even mentioning the wonderful waterproof drawing inks…couldn’t wait to try the paint in a Color-My-Page Art Journal Challenge?

Vote for the Art Journal Challenge

With these lovelies in hands I felt it’s time for another Color-My-Page challenge, don’t you? Below you will find the poll with the colors in Caroline’s collection. You can vote for 5 and the top three will be used in a live painting and review video on YouTube. (And yes, I know…the #2 Qor challenge video has yet to be made…I will do two one after another 🙂 The insetting slumber of fall grabbed me and drew me into a cocoon in the pauses between the fall-break-company and demands of my kids and hubs)
