On december 6th we celebrate Nikolaus in Germany. I don’t want to get deep into what Nikolaus is but here is a brief explanation. In the night up to december 6th Nikolaus goes from house to house and leaves candy and little presents for the children living there. He is kind of like Santa Clause but has a religions background. I didn’t expect to get anything this year because I thought I am now to old for it but I was wrong. I got some chocolate, washitape a little money and a gift card for the craft store., which I decided to spend today.
I was waiting all week to finally go and pick up the things I wanted. I have a huge list of things I want from the craft store and although I spend almost 50€ I didn’t get everything. But here is what I got:
1. A set of six fineliners
Fineliners were one of the top three on my list because my old one ran out of ink and since I got into illustrating I decided to get a whole set which includes six different sizes. I discovered that I rather use a smaller size for doing my illustrations and a bigger size for my lettering. My old fineliner was a size 0.3 and it never seemed to be the right size. Now I can choose and experiment. The set was 14,99€, which is a good price considering that a single fineliner is 3,49€.
2. A Tombow Fudenosuke Pen
I already have 10 Tombow dual brush pens and I know that I will get a pack of 18 dual brush pens for christmas, which I am really excited about. The Tombow brush pens are my favorite pens. I am obsessed with them. The Fudensuke has a brush tip but it is way smaller that the brush tip of the dual brush pens, which makes it easier to write small things. It is filled with back ink and was 2,99€ as far as I remember. It is not on my recipe. I think the cashier might have forgotten to scan it.
3. Water-colours and water-colour paper
I have been using my old set of water-colours, which is used in school years ago, quite I bit and since it is for kids it didn’t have good colours in it. I want to try using water colours for my projects because I love the way they look so I decided to get this set. I absolutely love the colors and already used them for a bunch of christmas cards. The set was 14,99€ and it came with one brush. The water-colour paper includes 20 sheets and was 10,99€ which in my opinion was a little bit expensive but the colours look amazing on it.
4. A water-colour brush
I have seen this brush on instagram and I always wanted to try it too. It isn’t as easy as it seems in the videos but I am sure I will get the hang of it. The brush was 6,99€, which is a little expensive but it was worth it.
I am really excited to use all of my new items and can’t wait for my exams to be over and have more time to do so. What do you think about what I got? What do you wish for christmas this year?
Lots of Love
