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.
