Heat Diaries Two Ways

Yesterday I took the temperatures of various surfaces outside. The hottest was the outside of my rain barrel at 175 degrees.

I also weighed a cup of water and put it outside for the day. It lost a little over two ounces. Crazy. 

So I was inspired to create a few crafty responses to this! First - a heatmap style card with ink blending - the perfect backdrop for these silhouette dies that are so striking

If you look closely, I very lightly shaded the various pieces with a white pencil for highlights. I love the boatneck shirt and her hair. The balloon string is a stamp.

You can also make little brides out of her with a veil, change her arm and hair up - it's really cute.

But the best way to fight with the heat is to think about fall! I took this stitched cover plate and did sort of a faux solar print technique - you know - that paper you put a leaf on in the sun and get a blue and white print out of? Then I stamped the little pumpkin in yellow and left it in my MISTI, and ink blended orange directly onto the stamp at the top and bottom. The sentiment and die are from the same set.

How are YOU beating the heat? If you live somewhere it's not hot, don't tell us Texans.
