IT'S HERE! POSTCARDS TO MYSELF teaches a delightful new way to discover your personal creative best!
This is an interactive eBook workshop with 18 videos. When you buy it, you will get a link to download the book in interactive PDF form. That means the book itself has live links to videos that you can click on and view - almost three hours of instruction, plus 40 pages of photos and tips.
The idea is that we all have artwork that we make along our journey as artists, and every time we create, we learn something worth remembering. Not everything is worth saving and storing as a finished piece, but experiments can be saved in postcard size 5x7" with notes on the back about the process and about what worked and what didn't. These are the "postcards to myself."
It's a different way to art journal. Every piece is an inspiration and a reminder of where you've been and what you'd like to remember.

WAX & WORDS:
An exploration of asemic writing, words, mark making and images enhanced with beeswax encaustic layers and gold foil - with nine videos
We will explore mark-making with all kinds of tools, including sticks, stamps, and sprayed walnut ink over stencils. All of the simple materials are "wax-friendly" and chosen especially for their absorbancy and acceptance of wax. Areas of the artwork will be veiled,, concealed and revealed, then covered with thin layers of beeswax to add translucency to the mystery of the marks. The resulting work, elegant and timeless, can be matted, framed, or presented in wonderful two- and three-dimensional ways.
With nine hands-on videos and 80 pages of instruction and photographs, this is an eBook you will go to often for mixed-media and collage inspiration! Interactive PDF, $18

Plus, you will get a deep discount on the Talisman Faces in this Etsy shop if you purchase the eBook!
Praise for Wax and Words:
"I love all of Lyn's e-books and this one is particularly wonderful. I like having both Lyn's instructional videos (feels like I am in a private class) as well as the written materials. Her ideas are easy to understand, she gives several suggestions on things and provides a materials list. Even though I am familiar with both collage making and encaustic wax, I still learned new ideas. Every time I go through the e-book I get inspired to try something new. Lyn is creatively inspirational. Thanks Lyn."
PRAISE FOR TALISMANS
The videos are an excellent addition to the tutorial. I am glad I ordered this workbook.
Behind the Veil: Beeswax and Collage
For those of you who want to try my method of encaustic photocollage, here's my 34-page e-Book on the subject.
It's called "Behind the Veil: Beeswax and Collage" and it's a step-by-step guide to the same techniques I teach in my workshops.
I think you'll like it - it's easy-to-follow and gives tips on set-up and composition as well. It costs $5.99 - cheap.
