Rank Game

Enter to win your own copy of the Rank Game. #sponsored @therankgame

Does your family like to play games? Mine does and we often take them with us to a restaurant. The Rank Game was an easy game to take with us. At the restaurant, we didn’t play the game as instructed but used the cards to begin conversations. We found out that we knew each other pretty well (no surprise there). These cards would also be fun to take on a road trip. The Rank Game is enjoyable for a broad age range.

The basic premise of the game is to decide how your friend would answer. If you have the card Movie Genre, your friends would decide which you would choose action, comedy, drama, or scary. There are a number of expansion packs available to make the game a constantly new experience.

You can purchase your own game of Rank and with my code “JANETTRIESCHMAN” you will get 20% off the price.

Cricut Machines

Great prices have been found on the Cricut Joy and the Cricut Maker. They may be the lowest we have ever seen. #affiliate @OfficialCricut

Low Prices

If you are looking for a good deal, the Cricut Joy has dropped to possibly the most affordable price. It is available for a limited time at $139.99. This price is good until 4/17. The Maker is also on sale but sold out at Cricut. You can still find it on Amazon for $299.00. These prices are the lowest we’ve seen in a while. I guess there is no surprise that the Maker is sold out on Cricut. You might want to grab one soon, no telling how long they will last at this price.

Liquitex Pour Medium Comparison

I tested out the three different Liquitex pour mediums. You can see how they compare. @liquitex #sponsored

Talking with Liquitex at Creativation+ I was excited to hear about their pouring mediums. They have three different versions gloss, iridescent, and matte. Within a few days, Liquitex sent me samples to use. So before using them, I wanted to test out their differences. Here’s the test I am sharing it with you.

Video Process Video:

The next thing I did was try a small pour painting with the Iridescent pour medium. I am happy to report that the pearliness of the pouring medium did show up more in the painting than it did in the sample pour.

Fountain Brush

Have you painted with a fountain brush? @DynastyBrush #sponsored

Dynasty Black Gold

A few years ago at Creativation I sat down at the Dynasty booth and painted a sketchbook page. I fell in love with the brushes and when I got home, I ordered them. Ever since, I have been looking for the Fountain brush. This year at Creativation+ I spoke with Dynasty about the brush and they sent me three sizes of the Fountain brush. Check out my video below on how to use the Fountain Brush.

Black Gold brushed work with oils, acrylics, and watercolors. The Black Gold by Dynasty is a premium quality brush that will satisfy the unique needs of decorative painters and fine artists alike.  The brush styles and sizes available include art industry standard fans, rounds, brights, flat washes, quills, and much more (in both long & short handles).  These Specialty brushes help decorative artists create unique textures and designs with just one stroke of your brush.
