Hand painted watercolour wreath and Cass art watercolour review

Hey everyone, today I have another video for you all. It is a slightly longer video today as I was contacted by a member at Cass Art – a UK art supply shop which I love having a browse around whenever I am in town. Luckily there is one in Liverpool! I was asked if I would like to take part in their watercolour outreach programme where I was sent a selection of watercolour products of my choosing to review. Of course, I was thrilled and I used the products to create this lovely loose floral watercolour wreath card, as well as reviewing the products. 

The products I choose were:

  • The ‘Aspiring watercolour starter set with paint, paper and brushes’
  • Arches aquarelle glued watercolour pad 300gsm hot press
  • Caran D’ache waterbrush 

To hear my review on these products, which was my favourite and how this card came together, make sure you check out the video below! For links to these products and more, please see the end of the post. 

Watercolour wreath card and review of watercolour products Video:

Watercolour products reviewed:

Archers Hot Press 140lb watercolour paper. Cass Art Cold Press 140lb watercolour paper.

Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour Studio Set 36 Half Pans. Daley Rowney Gold Taklon Synthetic Brushes. Caran D’Ache Waterbrush.

I created my own watercolour swatch chart of the 36 half pan set from Winsor & Newton using the Cass art cold press watercolour paper.

My favourite product out of all the watercolour products I was sent from Cass Art was the Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour Studio Set 36 Half Pans. For a hobby crafter, this gave me a great range of colours at a reasonable price and I don’t have to worry about mixing colours too much.

Mixed media Christmas card

I had a real urge to create a mixed media card today, and I wanted to do this with a Christmas card. It isn’t necessarily a traditional style Christmas card, more of a subtle nod to Christmas, other than the obvious sentiment on the front.
