Hello to all my lovely WOYWW friends, let me first say THANK YOU to everyone who has gone over to my Journal of a Lazy Dieter and left me a little "like" to show your support. Ya'll are super sweet! ♥ ( You can find the tab with links up at the top of the page. )

Today's WOYWW is brought to you by the "Floor of Shame"...enjoy! Digging out all my dirty laundry to share with you today! lol

I'll be over to snoop around....get the tea ready!

A color challenge over at Paper Smooches - Cool Shades Challenge
 


The small square background was created with distress sprays, which I sprayed onto a piece of wax paper and then pressed my watercolor paper onto and let dry. And the little seahorse was colored first with distress markers and then filled in with liquid pearls and stickles.

I have THREE of those mats on the floor in my craft room. You would be surprised at all the stuff these mats pick up and save your carpet. Laughed at the BIG fat foot comment!!

Happy WOYWW from # 17.

Love the card you made. Blue and green go so well together.

Hugs, you take care - Neet 16 xx

I love the fact that you paint on the floor - when we lived in London, I used to paint all my Christmas decorations on the floor too :) Love the card - Gill Friend - genius. I made a 'Get Whale Soon' card this week - gotta love a pun. Happy WOYWW. Cx #33

Just lovin the little tootsie in the photo (he he). I hope that plastic doesn't get holes in it or there could be a disaster on your floor.
That card is gorgeous, such a cute little seahorse.
Have a great week.

I like the idea of using wax paper, must give it a try. The card is great fun...love the sentiment. My craft room floor is far too disgusting to do anything on except walk!! Hugs. Pam#38

I cannot imagine painting on the floor, but it obviously works for you... my floor is normally clear of stuff probably because I am too lazy to keep bending down to get to it!!Happy WOYWW from Annette #9

Redanne said...

Hi Sandee, I think it's a great idea to paint on the floor, much more room there - I just wish I could actually get down and back up again!! Off to vote. Happy WOYWW, Hugs, Anne x #51

Anne said...

Hi there I like that you paint on the floor.I always used to sit on the floor whatever I was doing and did/still do go around with nothing on my feet. Sadly can't sit comfortably on floor anymore (sigh) Like the card Happy WOYWW Anne x #65

Maisie Moonshine said...

Julia Dunnit said...

Glenda Brooks said...

Another floor crafter! I honestly never knew how many of you there are. I sit at my desk but wish I had a space to stand and work. Oh well, we use what we have.

Ria Gall said...

Hi Sandee
that really threw me as I thought I was looking at your desk and then couldn't understand how your foot got in to the picture. Great looking floor but if I got down there I would never be able to get up again
Love your cards
Have a great WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week

Mary Pat Siehl said...

super cute cute card!!
love how you paint on the floor!

butlersabroad said...

Ooh, it's all coming out now isn't it!! Crafting on the floor and making a mess too, lol! Good luck with the dieting journal, I've been combining foods as well as I can for about three years and I feel so much better for it. I never get indigestion any more, I never fall asleep on the sofa watching tv any more, all my food cravings have gone so no pigging out or snacking when I shouldn't, and the odd time I eat whatever I feel like (at a restaurant or at friends for example), it doesn't bother me because I don't eat like that every day any more! It really is very good if you can stick to it whenever possible. Well done for trying!

Hugs

Winnie said...

Too cute! Love that sentiment with the seahorse. Can I ask a question? Did you leave the waxpaper on the wc paper and let it dry, or applied it to the w/c paper and let that dry? I love the look and want to try it! I love that you paint on the floor, but I am thinking I wouldn't be able to get up! Enjoy the day! Winnie#93

Pam said...

Sweet. Love the colors and the starfish boarder.

Hi Sandee,

Looks like you treated yourself to a pedicure! tee hee

Now, I couldn't do anything on the floor -- I wouldn't be able to get back up! I'm impressed at the levels you'll go for your art!

I'm not participating this week but wanted to pop in to visit.

Happy WOYWW
Kay

PS Not sure which button I'm supposed to go to on the sidebar?

Julie Ann Lee said...

Now that's the most interesting floor I ever saw! Mine is a floor of shame too, but only covered in bits of paper; spatters of paint; tiny spilled gems and threads and fibres! Have a great day - love 'gill friend' btw! Julie Ann #68 xx.

Regina Hamilton said...

Your card is too cute. Well, you are having some fun. Hope you are able to finish the tag. Happy crafting #26

Queen Lightwell said...

Still lovin' the pictures with descriptions right on them! Someday I will copy that, well when I have something interesting enough worth explaining! lol :) I think painting on your mat is a brilliant idea, makes me wish I had one...my craft room floor is wood, it's pretty though and easy to clean, but probably not if I painted on it! :) Thanks for sharing and the card! Too cute! And beautiful, too...Hugs dear! Deeyll #141

Carole Z said...

Have a wonderful week! Darnell #20

Katie said...

The floor is my favoritest place to craft! There is just so much room down there!

I also love the adorable seahorse on your card!!!

April Story said...

How does the brayering work on the floor. I am brayer challenged - maybe I should try using the floor. lol April #143

Krisha said...

Hi Sandee,
Very cute card and I love the fact that you do your painting on the floor....LOL Would love t jerk out the carpet, in the craft room, so I wouldn't have to walk clear through the house and outside on the patio. OH WAIT! that is my only exercise...LOL

MaryH said...

So enjoyed seeing your WOYWW desk today. Actually it looks pretty neat...chuckled at your floor painting technique. I'd have to sit, then try to get off the floor. Thanks for the wax paper spray & press technique. Will have to try that one. It made a lovely background to go with your cute seahorse. Perfect sentiment to go with the stamp too. Lovely card. TFS

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

That's the flirtiest little seahorse I've ever seen. Blessings!
