Wax on Wednesdays! An Epic Romance , of Undying Love

In this week's "Wax on Wednesdays! " we are still in the month of 
But, this week a little darker tale,
 of undying love. 
 This week was themed around Cathy and Heathcliff and 
their eternal connection to one another. 
I am more of an Austen girl myself, but Bronte's tragic romance holds
a very special place on a rainy day just the same. 

This week's supplies used:
Cradle board
paper clay
R and F encuastic medium
brass nails
vintage tin type photo
Sennelier paint sticks:
titanium white
Encaustikos Hot Cakes :red
clay tools 

 Sometimes when you receive the post via email , the video does not show up. If you do not see the video, you can view it directly on the Youtube channel 

I hope that you enjoy !

I am a little on the slow side with everything this week , as our Great Dane-osaurous had
surgery on her foot, and needs extra TLC and help getting about !
I have to keep a constant eye on her , or I will have to put
"The cone of shame"
back on her head , and she DOES NOT LIKE it!
And when a Great Dane doesn't like something....
they can be a little hard to convince :)
And , I would much rather have her rest happily and comfortably. 
Blessings to you,

I have been searching for some of the photos you have sent in since FLY opened. If you have any that you would like to share of your FLY journal please send them in I would love to add them! Also , if I missed any that you have sent me, please just shoot me a note. If there wasn't the name FLY or photo in the subject box of the email I may have missed it in my search this weekend.

Fly Journal is an ongoing self paced workshop. It has over 9 hours of videos filled with TONS of techniques ! We construct the our journal from scratch inside and out! Woot!
