August was all about swatching! I already have a swatch book for my paint sets and my inks. So I decided to focus on my pens. This helped me determine which ones needed their tips replaced and which ones were dried out.

I also really enjoyed swatching my glitter because you can’t always tell on the bottle what it looks like inside. So this is quite practical.

And for the last few days, I thought I would swatch some paints that are the same colors from different manufacturers. It was fun to see which ones went on smoothly and which were transparent. There are subtle differences between these and I was able to identify my favorites. So definitely a good exercise for me!
