This morning, I was trying to use temperature legulation. You know - where you stick one leg out from under the blankets to give yourself the perfect balance of cool and warm.
This is infinitely more difficult with two feline leg weights. You have to be very careful and move slowly so that they don't freak out and shoot off at 80 miles an hour, which elevates your heart rate and makes it impossible to go back to sleep.
I don't know why someone hasn't invented the Legulator blanket that pops into my head every time this happens. The Legulator basically has a leg length buttonhole that you can pop your leg out of, so that you don't have the blanket awkwardly bunched around your exposed leg - instead, just an easy to use vent.
Get right on that, comforter industry - because no matter how hot it is, I like my down comforter.
I'm hosting today's Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast, and I thought it would be fun to play with crayons! There are three technique videos in the challenge post, and one of them is my Crayon Rubbed Embossing Video. But I decided to do a different spin on that. Here's a peek:
First I embossed a die cut butterfly (Beautiful Butterflies die) from watercolor paper, and then embossed it with my Alphabet Press embossing folder. Then I unwrapped a yellow crayon (which was kind of a pain - they put adhesive all over them now so it's impossible to cleanly unwrap them) and rubbed the side of the crayon all over the raised letters on the butterfly.
You need to really saturate the raised area with color if you're going to do what I did, which is to use my Aquapainter and Tempting Turquoise reinker and watercolor all the debossed areas.
I wanted to use color because I'm so used to seeing white crayons used for a resist, but rarely color.
So this is today's #weloveDS card - what do you think?
My downline and I have a little surprise for the Demonstrator Support group on Monday, and man is it ever hard to keep a secret! :)
Wish I could buy them all Legulators!!
Thanks for stopping by.
