WHSmith | Craft Haul

Hello all, well this is my first post of 2016 and what better to with a craft haul, back on Christmas day there was sale on at WHSmith (UK) and my favourite artist quality colouring pencils were back in stock at last (after such along time of waiting) also notice they stocked watercolour pencils so decided to purchase some and see how they get on. I usually use Faber-castell watercolour pencils but decided that these WHSmith seem good and worth trying.

(Sorry for the light, but it was rather difficult to photo this metal tin)

They look like beautiful colours and so rich in vibrant colour and just as good as the well known brands out there on the market. I can't wait to start using them and will let you know how I get on.

I have used the artist quality coloured pencils for some years now and they are superb quality and are quite a good price, now they are £6.99 for the set of 36 colouring pencils and the set of 36 watercolour pencils are £14.99. (I did get a little discount as I got them in christmas sale)

Have you ever tried any of these pencils? I can highly recommend them for sure and you can get such great results with these too.
