Icky-Sticky-Messy!! My Kind Of Day!

I got some new spray inks today....and had a great time getting..icky, sticky, and messy :):) I made a new art journal to play in. I also picked up some new gotta-have tapes. I have gone crazy over all the different kinds of tapes out there in the world. 

I made my book from 12 sheets of white paper that feels like manila folders. Cut them up and hand sewed them together in the middle.

Here is the book so far. Now it is time to pull out all the fun stuff and get messy...I have certain friend who is at this moment...cringing at this thought :):) She doesn't like to get messy!!

Add the sprays, paints, and inks to the cover.

here is the new sprays I bought...love them. They stay very bright!!!! and We all know I like bright :):)
(see my fingers:):)

I have had this rubber stamp for a while..love it very much!!

On the inside of the covers I took out my tapes and just covered up the paper. Debbie at the Frenzy Stamper here in Scottsdale gave me that idea!! Love her store..if you live close you have to check her out !!

Back inside cover.

Then Debbie also suggested that I cover it all up with clear shipping tape to give the cover some protection and stability. Great idea, and worked awesome.

Finished book. Now I will carry this all around with me. And doodle in it, rubber stamps in it, glue in bits and pieces of this and that in it...until the book is full.

Here is my last photo....not only were my hands totally trashed...but so was my space....
If you look at the top right of this photo you will just see the cream quilt I have been working on in the machine waiting for me to stop goofing off and come back to it. Good thing it is far away from this mess. Now I need to go scrub my hands until they are clean again.. before I go near that beautiful clean quilt :):)

Don't forget that my GET EM' DONE linky party is this Sunday the 15th. I am looking forward to seeing what every one worked on this month. Come and link up and show us your UFO's.

Sticky, messy hugs to all :):)
