Arteza Watercolor Pencils & Paper Review | Hello Bluebird Pumpkin Time Stamps

Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by! I am reviewing Arteza’s watercolor pencils and their 100% cotton watercolor pad today. I’m also using a darling stamp set from Hello Bluebird called Pumpkin Time. Thirdly, because of one the the sentiments from this stamp set, I’m also going to talk about one of my favorite authors, L.M. Montgomery.

Let’s start with the Arteza Watercolor pencils & paper first. Watercolor pencils is one of my favorite mediums to use. They give you a lot more control than pan watercolors, and they’re fun to use, especially if you like colored pencils like I do. I have a few different sets of watercolor pencils, and I’m very happy to add Arteza’s set to my arsenal.  They sent me the 72 pencil set, and I love the bright and vibrant colors. They look beautiful on the paper even before you activate them with your paintbrush. The watercolor paper they sent along with them is 100% cotton which I prefer to use these days. I used to enjoy using Canson XL watercolor paper, and it’s not a bad paper, but once I tried out all cotton papers, it’s hard to go back. The colors blend and move so beautifully on 100% cotton papers. They are more expensive, but as a card maker, the paper lasts me a long time.

Here is a link to the free swatch chart I created for these pencils:

The stamp set that I chose to use with the Arteza watercolor pencils and paper is from Hello Bluebird. This is the first time I’ve used one of their stamp sets. I love fox images, and this fox is pushing a wheelbarrow of pumpkins! I just couldn’t resist it. All of the sentiments in this set are beautiful, especially one in particular.

The sentiment I used on my card says, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” This was written by L.M Montgomery–famous for her Anne of Green Gables series. I have very fond memories of reading these to my grandmother who had failing eyesight and couldn’t read anymore. After the PBS series came out in the 80’s, they started re-publishing all of Montgomery’s other works. I gobbled them up. One of my favorites is “The Blue Castle.” It’s sad and funny, and I’ve read it several times. A close second of my favorites is Jane of Lantern Hill. I also really love the Emily of New Moon series. All of her books are great reads!! Let me know if you’ve read any of these, or if you do decide to read one, let me know how you liked it! I love book talk!

Here is a picture of the Octoberesque card I created using all the products I mentioned above. It’s was so fun using Arteza’s watercolor pencils, and I love how the card turned out!
