Tonya at Scratchmade Journal has been a wonderful resource for me as I research different colors. Her blog lists her 2018 palette, along with info about why she chose most of the colors, so I’ll attempt to offer alternatives that let you build a palette with a similar spirit out of your collection!
Tonya doesn’t specify brands of most, but I believe most are Da Vinci, as she is a Da Vinci ambassador.
