Neocolour II

I have been doing a little gardening today...a little Sunday paper reading...a little cooking...a little dreaming and planning for when my garden has a make over one of these days ;)
I also got my collection of Caran d'Ache Neocolour II water soluble crayons together including the metallic ones I bought yesterday and quickly made a colour reference chart in my A5 journal.....I find it a great help to see the colours actually on paper rather than staring at the crayons!!!
I tried not to let them mix into each other too much...but that is one of the things I do like about them....the fact they can mix together on the page and it can always be a bit of a surprise ;)...that and you can also colour a large area really quickly ;) I'm glad I found out about these via Gez and the on-line course from Tam.....thanks girls.

The metallic ones will not show well on the photo but they have a subtle mica sheen to them....not too blingy and in your face! :)

  1. Mr Blogger has just lost my comment when I came to preview.Grr!

    I LOVE your pages. What a brilliant idea ♥

    Enjoy your new colours.Xx

  2. Never heard of these 'til you mentioned going to Totnes. They look super. Also, great idea to put them to paper so you can see the colours. I do that with my Copics and Ranger stuff.
