I Love You More Today~

Okay, I am ready to Get Messy! As in Get Messy with Celine Navarro with her class over at Studio Calico.

Or at least my version of Getting Messy. Yes I am a chicken, but I am a clean chicken.

I am going to step out of my comfort zone with this project even if it’s not as far as the teacher wants.

To start I got out several of my Mister Huey’s Color Mists. Some of you might know the relationship that Mister Huey and I have had, and it’s NOT pretty. Just picture the deepest, darkest shade of red paint hitting the whitest white of my window trim. Yikes!

This is why you always have a bottle of Dawn Power Resolve on hand.

Now that Mister Huey has apologized I used the various mists and my album cover with it’s TODAY cut out as a mask to spray each album sheet with the word TODAY on it.

I used~
Dewey, Estate Green, Inky Black, Real Red, Pretty Pink, Heirloom Blue and Taxi
All my pretty colors~

I then outlined each with marker~

And now to my cover~

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this Story Teller Generations paper from Crate Paper. Of course it had to go on my cover!

I dyed my doily by mixing water, Mister Huey’s Pretty Pink and Opaque White on a sheet of parchment paper and dipping it into the mixture. How’s that for getting messy?

My I love you phrase is from the Cricut Cartridge Phrases and cut at 2.75″.

My album is based off the saying~ I love you more each day, more than yesterday, less than tomorrow.

I have broken open my Class Kit, made a plan and gotten started. Woo Hoo!

So, why does the unopened jar of Modeling Paste sitting on my desk SCARE me? Eeekkk! What have I gotten myself into?

I used~
Studio Calico’s Get Messy Class Kit, Various Mister Huey’s and Echo Park This & That items
Phrases and CCR

  1. You are such a great writer. 🙂 Thank you for showing that it is ok to take small steps in learning new things.

  2. Oh My! I’d forgotten the mess that Mister Huey made in your house!! Rebecca & I just spent an “eternity” at the Mega Meet picking out the perfect colors for us to start our collections with…they had a buy 3 get 1 free deal & we just HTH some : ) Besides, it felt awful good to sit for 30 minutes while we watched & played with all the colors LOL!!! Hey! Where’s the LM fit into this project????!!
