So Colorful....

It’s been WAY too long since I’ve been here! LOTS to tell you, but I want to dedicate this post to one subject:

My friend, Dina Wakley, is such a ROCK STAR...Now she has her own paint line with Ranger! She asked me and some other artists to test out the line, including gesso, medium and brushes. Of course, I said YES! I had seen the line in action at CHA in January and couldn’t wait to get my hands on some.

I decided to do a couple journal pages, since that’s what I’ve been truly concentrating on this last couple of weeks. Here are my results:


And the full pages (no filter):

These paints are incredible. Lovely, buttery consistency. They blend together so nicely! The brushes are AWESOME, too!!!! I did brush down some of the black gesso as a starter on the next page in my journal and I love how quickly it dried with such a yummy flat black finish. I can’t wait to use all of these more. There’s also a gel medium and a white gesso.

You can have the full paint line as well. Dina’s giving away two complete sets on her blog today! Go over there and leave her a little love. And check out the other blogs in the blog hop to see what fantabulous work was created with these yummy products!!!
