My Favorite Dylusions Products



Hey there! Today I'm sharing my picks from the Dylusions brand. So many goodies to choose from! But these are my favorites. Watch the video for all the details, or just scroll down for the list, with links (some affiliated)!





The Dylusions Journal is a great art journal to play in. Best suited for the Dylusions spray inks and paints. If you want a proper watercolor journal, look somewhere else (like Stillman & Birn, Jane Davenport and Strathmore). Get it from Blitsy HERE.




Creative Dyary Sticker Book is a fun booklet filled with lots of stickers, from elements to little lists spots, months and more. Find it on Blitsy HERE.




These are my two favorite stamps sets from the Dylusions range. Branching out on the left, and Around the Edge on the right. Find them also on Blitsy HERE.

There are many stencils in the Dylusions line, my favorite is Chequered Dots, an older one that is not that widely available anymore. If you get your hands on it, it's a lovely one!




I love the paints and the spray inks. The paint is fast drying and matte. Perfect for adding mist on top. The mists are as vibrant as can be (the last release shown here has softer colors, but most of the older sprays are extremely bright and intense). My favorite paint currently is Periwinkle Blue, and spray ink in Bubblegum Pink.

White Linen is a semi opaque white spray ink and it's fantastic. Find it on Amazon or Blitsy.

That's it! I hope you found this useful, I'll be back soon with more videos and favorites!

My Favourite ( More Unique) Watercolour Shades

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite watercolors. Keep on Scrolling for the full list & links. 



I have a large collection and am always on the hunt for that perfect shade. I am not comparing brands here or reviewing sets, these are just some of the more unique shades of watercolor in my collection. 




I find that the great brands (Daniel Smith, Schmincke, Sennelier, Holbein to name a few) have a very comparable range of standard colors, but the ones I mention here are a little harder to find. Not every brand has every shade, obviously. 



I find when it comes to the primary colors and the classic choices for a palette, the differences between this ultramarine blue or that are not that big, and it comes down to personal preferences. 


Personally, I love the tertiary colors the most. The violets, the orange yellows, the turquoises, teals and mints. While one can certainly mix similar shades using primary colors, I keep a range of my favorites in my palette. Some for conveniece, and some because they are rather impossible to mix (like the fluorescent colors). 



There are so many beautiful pigments and colors, why not use them? So these are MY picks, based on MY colour preferences.

Journal With Me- Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks



Poor poor neglected blog. If you're wondering where I am, I'm on YouTube mostly. Working on lots of different projects at the moment, so something's gotta give, and it's usually my blog... Do people still read blogs? I don't know. Anyway, make sure you follow me on YouTube, that's where it's all at these days. I have new videos every week, and there are many of them coming in April and May.
If you're a mixed media fan, I'm posting many tutorials on Patreon, it's such great value, and the platform is very user friendly, especially on mobile devices (make sure you download the app!!). Anyway, less talking, more creating. Here's today's Journal With Me video. Enjoy!
