1st Ever GIVEAWAY at Painted Thoughts!

6:41 AM


What could it be!?! A pill box?

No...
Painted Thoughts Blog's 1st Giveaway!!
I have wanted to do a GIVEAWAY for a long while now, but it had to be just the right item! I've looked for a long while, and finally, I think I've found a very special item for the 1st giveaway! I must say it's hard to let go of this little goody, too...

So, ready!?!

Love the lilacs on the top!
How about a mint tin?

Getting closer!

How about a palette made from a mint tin!?!

3 x 2.75 inches or 7.6 x 6.98 cm - perfect for your pocket!
12 pans just waiting for your preferred paints!
This sweet little palette tin is 3 x 2.75 inches (7.6 x 6.98 cm) and holds 12 half pans—the perfect size to slip into your pocket or purse so you can sketch on the go! I picked this up while I was out in California as I just loved that graphic on the top.

If I didn't already have so many palettes, I'm not sure I could part with this one, but then again, I need intervention when it comes to art supplies, so y'all are the lucky ones (unless, that is, you need intervention too)!

The inside has been prepped and painted with a white gloss enamel for easy mixing, cleaning and to tell what the color will look like on your paper. The half pans are secured with rubber cement so that if you decide to change up your palette, you can easily do so.

Now, if you'd like to be entered to win the 1st Ever Painted Thoughts' Giveway, just leave me a comment below! I will have my own personal version of the Random Number Generator (Chris) pull the lucky winner on Friday, September 14th at 8 am and I'll announce the lucky winner a little later that morning here on the blog!

Please leave comments on this post to be entered to win. Contest closes at 7:30 am, Friday, September 14th. 

Good luck!!

The Giveaway is Now Closed! Good luck to all who entered!

  6. I don't have a palette! I just started to watercolor, with re-gifted watercolor tubes, and use a plastic lid. Your tin would be really fancy gear for me! Thanks for the chance to win it.

  12. Oh what a lovely gift. I need one to go with my water brush. :) Did you fix it up to be a pallet or was it all fixed up? Cute. I finally got a new monitor so I can now see colors again, which is why I have been a little MIA lately. Everything blue isn't so great. :)
