The Return of What I’m Loving Wednesday

{ 1 comment }

As implied by the extremely creative title of this post, I’m bring back What I’m Loving Wednesday posts for the first time since last fall.

So, here’s what I’m loving today…


I’m loving that my garden is going strong. It’s so nice to be able to walk to the back yard to pick herbs and stare longingly at my budding broccoli.


I’m loving running again. After my embarrasing toe/wine bottle incident, I’m finally (albeit slowly) adding the miles back on my garmin. Jacob and I are even signed up for a local 5k this Friday night!


I’m loving our new leather sectional. More pictures sooooooon.


Last but not least, I’m loving myfitnesspal. Jacob and I are determined to get back down to ‘wedding weight’ before our family beach vacation in July. After a failed attempt to lose some pounds last fall, I’m finally having success tracking calories and exercise with myfitnesspal.


What are you loving today?

I’m linking up over at This Kind of Love

    Hi Irene!When you seal your wood canvas with Gesso you have to allow it to dry cotleemply. I usually do multiple ones that way they are ready to go when I’m ready to paint on them.I usually do at least 2 layers of Gesso on all sides including the back (3 layers is ideal) for longevity.Once the Gesso is dry, then you can sketch on on it.I sketch on Vellum or Tracing paper first so all the erasing and corrections are done on that and not on the wood. Once I’m happy with the drawing then I transfer it using another piece of Velum that I have rubbed cotleemply with a 4B pencil, you can purchase transfer paper, but I just make it my self.By transferring the drawing, you keep the Gesso clean and then begin to paint.If you do not want to deal with transferring, you can always add a layer of clear coat to the pencil sketch that is on the wood, let it dry and then start painting. The lead will be sealed and will not mix with your colors.I hope that helps.You’ve given me a nice idea for a blog post and I’ll be explaining it using pictures.Take careMaggie
