Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I feel like I have a new groove with all of the Spring in the air ! This Spring I am going beyond my usual flower beds and creating a large cutting garden. Dear Hubby may, or may not be aware of just how large I am envisioning this plan;) My huge love of floral photography is driving all my desires for this, and I have convinced my self that I will save money in the end growing my own ? That's what I keep telling myself as my garden plans expand anyway . I love visiting local flower farms though, and there are quite a few in our area. It was especially a joy last summer when some of them were able to open to the public as it is an outdoor experience . That, and the beautiful parks ended up being some of the few places one could go. No complaints there though as both are a beautiful experience. What's in your garden this Spring?
This week adding Cold Wax Medium and some collage to a cyanotype print !
Supplies I used this week:
Each week I list the supplies I used in the video here on the blog for you so that you can see and easily find the items used for that week's technique .
If you purchase items from the links provided it sometimes generates a few cents in commission which goes right back in to creating videos for you on the youtube channel. It does not raise the cost for you in any way, and is the same link you would find on a regular amazon prime search . Thank you so much! Also , although the photos here can help you easily find the product . I also recommend that you look at your local art /hobby store to make sure you are getting the lowest price. Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.

I created the community over on Patreon in April of last year in order to bring small workshop content, and bonus content for artists each and every week at a very low price compared to a full workshop. There are a variety of levels to choose from and you can move up and down on those levels within the community. I loved the fact that ALL content from the beginning of the channel would be available to subscribers. This means that currently there are over 50 Wax on Wednesdays with step by step process commentary + a bonus photo encaustic series on the channel to watch for just 4.99. It is also largely due to the Patron subscribers on channel that I am able to continue to be able to bring you Wax on Wednesdays each week and I am very grateful for that community . I am also there to quickly answer questions that you may have about each week's project. There are other levels to choose from that receive even more creating content each month. You can check out the details for the Patreon channel HERE and I would love to have you join me over on the channel.
Hope you enjoy this week's photo encaustic painting project !
xo and happy creating :)
