Faber-Castell GIVEAWAY & Review

Ready for todays second giveaway? Yes that's right there are two giveaways for today! This week there may be a few days where there are two giveaways that way I can get caught up before my Christmas Guide I have a feeling I will be quiet busy once it begins! Which is good news for all of you.



The second company I want to present you with today is called Faber-Castell who sells art kits of different types.For my review I received a Watercolor Canvas Art Butterflies Kit,I was very excited when it arrived because I love almost anything having to do with art.When the kits arrived I was almost too afraid to use them because the butterfly outlines they have one the canvas are so adorable I didn't want to ruin them.At first I didn't see how coloring on the canvas then getting it wet would transfer into a nice watercolor texture but to my surprise the light colored pencil because a bright very pretty watercolor once you apply a little water too it,though I must admit in one or two spots I added too much water which caused it to run a little but it was easily fixed.The first butterfly I did I left half watercolor & half just colored pencil so I could show my DH & my mother when she came to visit the difference it does make they really liked the kits as well.Each kit comes with 3 Preprinted Canvas Boards, 1 Practice Canvas, 5 ART GRIP Aquarelle Pencils, Pencil Sharpener, Paintbrush, 4 Foam Mounting Boards, Ribbon For Hanging, Illustrated Instructions & for only $19.95 a kit that is a really good deal & a great gift for any art lover.Faber-Castell has fast shipping,friendly customer service & great products I look forward to trying more of their products in the future & plan to keep my eyes open for their kits while at the craft stores.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Faber-Castell for the Review & Giveaway****

One Lucky winner will win a Watercolor Canvas Art Butterflies!
