It's a HOT Wednesday

We have been suffering quite the heat wave with temperatures up to 114*F Monday and Tuesday.  Yesterday coming home from town (about 10 miles) my air conditioner decided to blow HOT, oh so HOT, air instead of cool and I ended up taking it to my mechanic.  Weird, but the air worked after driving about 3 or 4 miles so hopefully the garage can figure it out.  But today, I'm in where it's relatively cool and getting lots done at my desk.  And you get the opportunity to see my desk and many others through the gracious Julia at the Stamping Ground.  Or maybe someone who is filling in as she is on vacation (I seen she was in Arizona Sunday!).  But here's my desk in the middle of a project.

I was playing with a technique we were taught at our company's 3rd annual convention June 7 - 10 using water, a media tray, and our Silks (a liquid metallic or shimmery liquid ink-like product). You can see my "marbled pieces of paper in the middle of my work place.  Also there are the stamps & dies I'll be using. Do you want to see what I made?

Except for the green base all pieces of paper have been marbled.  This was a hoot! I also flicked some of our Sparkle Silk on the flowers for fun and added some pearls.

I made this card for a challenge using this technique through a fellow coach on FB.  Love it but it is messy. And the stamps are in our soon-to-be live on July 1 catalog so they're not available yet.

Now please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to many more desks.  I'll be home today since I'm vehicle-less until this evening.

Love that marbling effect. I've done something similar with shaving foam. Hope the air con is sorted out soon. Mine needs resealing before it can be re gassed, so I'm having to manage without at the moment! Happy WOYWW Sarah #28

Hi Carol,

Yikes! I hear Arizona is having record breaking heat. Holy moly! I hope your a/c manages to get fixed, and soon.

The card is beautiful. Love the marbling effect.

Pretty card, Carol, and an interesting technique. Always something different on WOYWW! Thank you for your visit and your kind comment - yes, it's a sad time without our kitties and we hope for news of new kittens soon. You are not the first person to think I've got a drill on my desk - it's actually a Bosch hot glue gun!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #26

Happy Belated WOYWW. Beautiful flowers. Reminds me that I was going to try the shaving foam technique (even bought some cheap shaving foam!). Something to add to my To Do list, or I will forget again. Hope your A/C is working well now. Ali x #30
